BCCI unveiled the Indian cricket team's official jersey for the 2021 T20 World Cup on Wednesday (October 13). Currently, India’s official kit sponsor is MPL Sports.
The new jersey in deep blue was liked by the majority of Indian cricket fans on social media, although there were still some of them who preferred a light color. Team India were sporting the retro-kit (1992 World Cup-themed) in the limited-overs cricket before MPL introduced a new kit for the tournament.
India will start their T20 World Cup campaign with a high-voltage match against arch-rivals Pakistan on October 24 in Dubai. They are also set to play two warm-up games, against Australia and England. Their warm-up matches are scheduled for October 18 and October 20.
The qualifying round begins on October 17, but the second round of the tournament which is the Super 12 stage, will start in Abu Dhabi on 23 October, with the Group 1 match between Australia and South Africa.
Here are the reactions of fans to the new kit:
