The BCCI on Sunday unveiled the Indian team jersey ahead of the upcoming T20 World Cup, which will take place in Australia in a month’s time.
The rumours about a new jersey being used in the upcoming event have been doing the rounds for quite sometime with a few leaked photos providing a small glimpse of the new kit.
Now, on Sunday, BCCI have finally released the new kit in a post on their social media platforms. The image contains the likes of Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya and the women’s team members like Harmanpreet Kaur, Shefali Verma and Renuka Singh sporting the new jersey.
The new jersey is a dual tone one with the shoulders and sleeves being dark blue and the rest of the kit being in light blue shade. There is a small design on the left-hand side of the jersey as well.
In the tweet posted on their official Twitter account, BCCI said that the kit is dedicated to every cricket fan in the country.
“To every cricket fan out there, this one’s for you. Presenting the all new T20 Jersey – One Blue Jersey by @mpl_sport #HarFanKiJersey #TeamIndia #MPLSports #CricketFandom,” tweeted BCCI.
