As Chinese mobile firm Oppo has being added to the cricketing family following a successful bid of INR 1079 crore for a team sponsorship of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Thursday, it has unveiled a new Smartphone which is laced with some significant features.

With a perfect selfie camera for group selfies, the new smartphone has BCCI’s logo engraved on its back panel in its special black edition which further shows its dedication and commitment toward the gentleman’s game.

At the launch of the new Smartphone, the Global Vice President of Oppo Sky Li and BCCI CEO Rahul Johri unveiled the much-awaited new jersey with Oppo Logo inscribed on it before Johri termed the partnership as a ‘perfect marriage’ for both the giant platforms respectively.

Cricket is a sport full of vigor and passion enjoyed by the youth of India,” Sky Li said at the product launch.

Following the chronological order, the mobile manufactures agreed to pay 4.61 crores for a bilateral international tournament followed by INR 1.56 crore for ICC sponsored match, as they became Team India sponsors on March 7th for the next five years which actually will commence from April 1st.

“We believe that we share the same passion and spirit of pursuit of perfection as cricket that makes this association a perfect fit,” Sky Li concluded.

Interestingly, the new jersey will be donned by the Indian stars in the upcoming Champions Trophy which will start from June 1st in England and Wales.

With three stars engraved above the BCCI logo, the tricolour strip has been added around the shoulders which further send the message of self-belief among players, as apparel partner Nike has made use of the fine microfiber to assist players in different condition.

Owing to the lack of clarity, Star didn’t bid after being sponsors of Team in since 2014. The women’s team which is in South Africa will don the jersey for a quadrangular series in which Proteas, Ireland and Zimbabwe is participating.

The series will kick off on May 7 between India Women against Ireland Women in Potchefstroom in North West Providence of South Africa.
