The countdown has begun for the 2019 VIVO Indian Premier League and in the latest news, defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) has signed up deal with British Empire Glasses and SNJ Distilleries Private Limited for the 12th edition of the cash-rich league.
According to a media release on CSK website MS Dhoni’s team this year (IPL 2019) will head on the field, with their jersey carrying the SNJ 10000 logo on the leading arm while British Empire will be seen on the back of the helmet.
Speaking about the tie-up Chairman, SNJ, Jayamurugan, said that the company is excited and feels that the tie-up will mean a lot. “Team CSK and brands from the SNJ Group are larger than life and much loved. And a tie-up like this will be a roaring success,” he said in a media release on Wednesday.

Appearing in the seventh final last season, the men in yellow are now on level terms with Mumbai Indians for most titles in the competition, while also extending its record of qualifying to the Playoffs to all nine seasons that it has participated in.
