Indian cricket team’s newly launched kit, which has been designed by BCCI’s new kit sponsor Adidas, has created a buzz on social media, with many expressing their dissatisfaction over the price. According to the official site, the original ODI jerseys are priced at Rs 4,999 each, while the ODI replicas were mentioned to be 2,999. The ODI fan jerseys, on the other hand, have been listed at Rs 999 each.
Cricket fans were quick to show their dissatisfaction over the high price, and they took no time to call out the same on the microblogging site. They pointed out that if they purchased the ripped-off version from any local markets across India they could get it for as much as Rs 50.
“Sir if u go to wankhede 4999 mein you will get 50 jersey,” wrote one user. “Abibas zindabad only 200 main mil jayegi (Long live Abibas, will get it for just Rs 200),” said another.
