While Kohli has been endorsing MPL for quite some time, he was appointed brand ambassador of the gaming platform in January last year.

MPL currently has a three-year deal with BCCI and the brand’s logo is being sported by the Indian team in their ongoing tour of Australia. The women’s team and the U-19 Indian side will also have the MPL logo on their jerseys.
