Team India To Don New Jersey In T20 World Cup

Bengaluru | Updated: 19 September, 2022 11:15 am IST

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Sunday night unveiled a new jersey for the men’s and women’s cricket teams. The Indian team will don the new jersey in the upcoming T20 World Cup, which is slated to start next month in Australia.

But before the marquee event, India will play the T20I series at home against Australia and South Africa wearing the new-fangled jersey. The first match of the three-match series against Australia will take place in Mohali on Tuesday.

“To every cricket fan out there, this one’s for you. Presenting the all-new T20 Jersey – One Blue Jersey,” the BCCI tweeted. Earlier this week, the BCCI hinted at the change of the jersey of the Indian team. This is the second time in 2022 that the jersey of the Indian team has been changed.

The poster of the new jersey features men’s and women’s team captains — Rohit Sharma and Harmanpreet Kaur — respectively. They’re accompanied by Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Shafali Verma, and Renuka Singh.

The sky-blue tinge in the jersey has made a comeback after many years. In 2007, the Indian team, led by MS Dhoni, donned the sky-blue jersey during the inaugural T20 World Cup.

India’s men team is smarting from their Asia Cup defeat right now and gearing up to take on Australia in the T20I series. The team is in the process of fine-tuning their playing XI and plugging the loopholes before the T20 World Cup.

The return of Jasprit Bumrah, Harshal Patel, and Deepak Chahar after injuries has bolstered the team. Virat Kohli regaining the form after a long time is also a bright spot for Team India. However, they need to take stock of their death overs bowling and the problem of the top 3 in their batting line-up.

The women’s team, at present, is participating in the ODI series in England after losing the T20I series against England 1-2.
