India To Play With A New Jersey In The Upcoming T20 World Cup
A day after announcing a 15-man squad for the T20 World Cup 2022, the BCCI has announced an opportunity for cricket fans to support their team with the Indian team’s new jersey. On Tuesday, MPL Sports announced that it would launch a new jersey for the Indian cricket team ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia this year.
Announcing the new jersey, MPL posted a video on Twitter in which captain Rohit Sharma, all-rounder Hardik Pandya and top-order batsman Shreyas Iyer requested the fans to be a part of their dream jersey.
With the campaign, it is clear that fans will be a part of the new jersey, but how? Well that part is yet to be known. In the post, MPL wrote: “The game is not really the same without you guys cheering us on! Show your fandom along with BCCI for the game by sharing your fan moments,”
What’s The Design And Pattern?
As of now, MPL has only revealed that the Indian team will come in a new look in the upcoming season. However, it has not revealed the design and pattern of the new jersey, which the team is said to be wearing in the upcoming T20 World Cup in October-November.
Currently, team India wears a dark blue jersey in ODIs and T20Is. The current jersey was launched ahead of last year’s T20 World Cup, and MPL claims that the stripes resemble the dream and love of billions of team India fans.
