Team India will sport this jersey for the first time ever during the three-match T20I series against Australia, which will take place from September 20 onwards. It will also wear it during its three-match T20I series against South Africa, which will start from September 28 onwards.
Team India skipper Rohit Sharma, star all-rounder Hardik Pandya and Suryakumar Yadav were among the men’s players present in the picture. While women’s cricketers like Renuka Singh, captain Harmanpreet Kaur were among the players from the women’s team in the picture.
All eyes are on this T20I series against Australia and another home series against South Africa, starting from September 28, consisting of three ODIs and three T20Is. These will serve as quality match practice for Men in Blue for ICC T20 World Cup 2022, which will go on from October 16 to November 13 this year.
India could not qualify for semis the previous year as they crashed out of the competition in the Super 12 phase.
