Byju’s is the new sponsor which has come in replacing the Chinese Mobile company Oppo. However, the new look of the Men in Blue has failed to impress many.

Previously BCCI had announced about its fresh contract with the Bengaluru based ed-tech company. “It is now declared that BYJU’S will be catching overall responsibilities of the current team sponsor OPPO mobiles India private limited. The BCCI is gratified to welcome India’s best education and learning app BYJU’S as the official Team India sponsor from 5th September 2019 until 31st March 2022,” said a BCCI official report on the moth of July.


The BCCI, on their official Twitter handle, also posted photos of training sessions, in which it can be seen Indian cricketers wearing the new kit. However, the new jersey will be worn by the Indian team for the first time from Sunday as they clash with Proteas in the 3 match T20 series.

Oppo was to end its contract by 2022, but due to high price, the Chinese company decided to step down from the contract. However, both Oppo and Byju’s are said to have signed a contract agreement with BCCI after which the board will be paid exactly what the old contract had.

The new jersey will be worn by Indian team for the first time as they take on Proteas in the 3 matches T20I series.
