Killer Jeans are the new sponsors of the Indian Cricket Team after previous sponsors MPL (Mobile Premier League) pulled out. MPL had a contract with the BCCI till December 31st, 2023. Despite the BCCI requesting them to extend their contract till 31st March 2023, the brand did not comply.

It was Yuzvendra Chahal who shared the first photo of the jersey with the Killer logo when he posted a picture of himself along with teammates Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik, Mukesh Kumar and Ruturaj Gaikwad.

“BCCI received an email communication from MPL sports on 2.12.2022 seeking a complete assignment (team + merchandising) at full value to Kewal Kiran Clothing Limited, a fashion wear brand, for the period from 1.12.2023 to 31.12.2023,” a note from the BCCI read, according to a report by news agency PTI.

“With the upcoming back-to-back home series and the women’s away calendar, it was suggested that the current arrangement should not be hampered as it involves performance gear for the national teams. We have asked MPL sports to continue the association at least until 31.3.2023 or look for a partial assignment that would involve only the right chest logo but not the kit manufacturing agreement,” the note further stated.
