The Indian team has reached Australia after playing a long series of three One-Day, Three T20 and four Test matches. The series starts on November 27 at the Sydney Cricket Ground for the first ODI. The dress and other accessories of the Indian cricket team will now be sponsored by the MPL. At the same time, now your commercial interest will also be simple. Indian cricket fans will also sell T-shirts and other items from their shop. After this agreement, the head of the board Sourav Ganguly also expressed happiness. He said, 'The objective of this partnership is to bring high quality goods to the Indian cricket fan, it will be a pleasure not only for the cricket fans in the country but also globally.
Board Secretary Jai Shah said, 'We have to cross a new boundary for Team India and for the business of sports in the country. We are very excited to work with a young Indian brand like MPL Sports. Nike had signed a five-year contract from 2016 to 2020, for which it paid Rs 370 crore along with a royalty of Rs 30 crore. In the current economic situation (due to Kovid-19), no one was prepared to pay the same amount of money as Nike did. However the rate per match would be Rs 65 lakh per match instead of Rs 88 lakh per match paid by Nike. However, this has not been officially confirmed yet.
