The new T20 shirt for the Indian men’s and women’s cricket teams was introduced by the BCCI on Sunday. The unveiling occurs two days before India’s T20I series against Australia and one month before the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia.

“To every cricket fan out there, this one’s for you. Presenting the all-new T20 Jersey – One Blue Jersey,” the BCCI tweeted. The jersey is made out of a light blue t-shirt with deeper blue sleeve accents and light blue pants. 

Men’s and women’s team leaders Rohit Sharma and Harmanpreet Kaur, respectively, were on the billboard for the new shirt. Suryakumar Yadav, Shafali Verma, Hardik Pandya, and Renuka Singh are on each side of them.

Indian Team Preparing For Series Against Australia

The Indian men’s squad is preparing for a home T20I series against Australia, which will consist of three games. Then they will host as many T20Is against South Africa.

Their next task in the shortest format will be the 2022 T20 World Cup, which starts in October in Australia. An ODI series against South Africa will come next.

After losing to Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the Super 4 stage of the Asia Cup, India just experienced an unexpected early departure. When they face the defending global champions Australia and South Africa, both top candidates for the World Cup championship, they will want to improve their form and momentum for the pivotal tournament next month.   

Currently, in England, the women’s squad is competing in an ODI series against the hosts. They just suffered a 1-2 T20I series loss against England. 

Fans are already commenting on India’s new T20I uniform. One supporter suggested that the word “INDIA” be removed from the national shirt if there isn’t a tricolore on it. “If you are not putting Tricolor on the jersey, then don’t write INDIA on it. Just write Byju’s BCCI Worst feeling,” the fan wrote. 

Another fan said that the ‘unlucky’ dark blue colour should have been removed. The fan wrote, “decent. could’ve avoided the unlucky dark blue all together though.”

Other supporters felt that outcomes should matter more than the jersey and didn’t give it much thought.
