According to News18, the Chinese mobile manufacturer Oppo has handed over the sponsorship rights to Byju’s, a Bengaluru-based educational technology and online tutorial firm.
The Indian team will be wearing the Byju jersey from their upcoming home season, starting with the games against South Africa from September 15.
