Reebok has gone to the Delhi High Court over the breach of agreement and has secured an injunction restraining International Management Company from covering the Reebok’s logo on the shirts of the Indian cricketers.
Sahara and Reebok have been at loggerheads over the placement of the logo on the shirts of the Indian players. With less than half a day to go for the Third Test at Bangalore, IMG informed Reebok that they would use the kit supplied by Reebok, but would cover the Reebok logo on the shirt. This prompted Reebok to go to the Delhi High Court.
According to sources, the controversy was triggered by the fact that Sahara India, which is paying nearly Rs 4 crores annually to have their logo on the shirt, is paying much more than what Reebok is paying.
