Since the World Cup 2019 is starting soon, all teams are preparing for the event. While some teams have made changes in their final squad, there are others who have changed their jerseys. The new kit for Indian team was launched on March 1 and M. Singh Dhoni, Harmanpreet Kaur, and Virat Kohli were the cricketers donning this kit.
The Indian team will wear this jersey for the first time during the 5 ODIs that they will play against Australia. This jersey is very special for the team because it has the dates of all previous Indian world cup wins written behind the back collar. The dates of India’s world cup wins from 1983 and 2011 ODI world and 2007 T20 Word cup are emblazoned on the jersey.
According to Remit Sharma, this jersey would help the team be agile when they are on the field. Dhoni said that he has seen many designs but at the end, it is the fabric of the jersey that makes you comfortable. He seemed quite impressed by the fabric and said that the jersey did not feel heavy nor did it weight him down.
Interesting Facts about New Jersey:
This new jersey for the Indian team is sponsored by Nike and the interesting thing about it is that it has been made from recycled material. Back in 2015, the jerseys were made from recycled bottles and the same approach is taken this year.
There is an orange stripe on both sides of the jersey while the sleeves are slightly lighter in shade. In the previous jerseys, three stars were seen above the BCCI logo but this time, they are on the back of the jersey. They represent the three world cups that India has won.
