The new jersey for the Indian cricket team has been unveiled by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) just days before Team India takes on Australia in a T20I series at home. The jersey is pretty lovely and features both light and dark hues of blue. The design of the shirt is so striking that fans are in awe of it.
The Team India jersey has been the centre of attention for the cricket community and fans for the past 16 years. Indian cricketers are known as “Men in Blue” and “Women in Blue” because of their team’s predominately blue uniform.
The India cricket team’s uniform has changed quite a bit over time.
Here’s a look at the jerseys worn by the India men’s national cricket team in each T20 world championship:
