CSK has packaged drinking water of sponsors SNJ 10000 and the logo of the British Empire Glass – the surrogate product brand of SNJ Distillery Pty Ltd. As per the deal, the jerseys will carry the SNJ 10000 logo on the leading arm while the British Empire logo will be on the back of the helmet.

Moeen Ali had refused to put the liquor logo on the jersey: CSK agreed
In Islam, alcohol is considered haraam. In view of this religious belief, England cricketer Moeen Ali of Pakistani origin made a special request to the CSK management, which was accepted by the franchise with pleasure. The statement issued by CSK said, ‘We respect the decisions of our players. If they don’t want to wear a jersey with the wine logo on it, then there’s no harm in it. Also, there is no such obligation from the sponsors.
Apart from Moeen Ali, CSK also features South African leg-spinners Imran Tahir and KM Asif. Tahir has also in the past refused to wear jerseys promoting liquor brands. Moeen Ali, who was a part of RCB till last year, became a part of CSK in the auction before the 14th season. This will be his first season with the new team.
