Killer Jeans, the current sponsor, will only hold the sponsorship rights through May 31. Adidas will then assume control. Prior to Killer Jeans, MPL served as the Indian team's kit sponsor. In December of last year, MPL ceded the rights to Kewal Kiran Clothing Limit.
Additionally, the present sponsor, the edtech behemoth Byju's, was said to be open to terminating the agreement before the contractual deadline of November 2023 in December of last year. According to rumours, the BCCI is also looking for a new principal sponsor.
The Indian squad is anticipated to sport the new Adidas uniforms in the forthcoming World Test Championship championship game. The ICC ODI World Cup will be held in India this year from October to November. Before the new blue uniforms are used, the squad has a number of ODIs scheduled.
