MPL was recently associated with Indian Premier League (IPL) teams Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders. As part of this new deal, MPL Sports will design and produce cricket jerseys for the men’s, women’s and Under-19 Indian cricket teams.

BCCI and MPL Sports have entered into a three-year partnership effective from November 2020 until December 2023.

Jerseys designed by MPL Sports will make their debut in India’s upcoming limited-overs and test series in Australia which starts off with the first ODI in Sydney on November 27.
