The decision to launch own apparel collection comes in the backdrop that Sharma shouldering responsibilities of a Captain of the Indian cricket team and global sportwear companies taking a lead in the domestic cricket arena with edtech and fintech to sponsor initiatives of the men in blue.

It is said that Sharma's passion with sustainability will be reflected in the collections also. He wore rendered cricket shoes in the recent IPL, to give a push for the need to save oceans and marine life and for every run he scores, it is promised that Adidas will collect 10 plastic bottles and upcycle it into products. All these scenarios prove his concern towards a sustainable ecosystem.
