On 27 February 2014, while watching the Asia cup match between India VS Bangladesh I noticed a that the shirts worn by Indian team players didn't have a sponsors logo on the chest portion, even though they had logos on their arms.

Can anyone give me the reason why the sponsors logo was missing on the chest of an Indian player's shirt?


The logo is missing due to the contract between Star India and BCCI. According to that contract, the star India logo will only be shown on the arms of the jersey for Asia cup.

"We have different sets of agreements for different tournaments with the BCCI. Not wearing the logo on chest was according to our pact for the tournament and the rules of Asia Cup. You might see a different jersey for the World Twenty20 next month," Nitin Kukreja, a top honcho of Star India, said.

    @shaan, rules of Asia cup is mentioned by Star India Official. But the CEO of Asian cricket council said that there is no rules to prevent logos on jersey. It is up to the team. You can see the other teams having the logo. Feb 28 '14 at 4:59
