Darker better? Billion Blue T20 World Cup India jersey drops light blue hue

The Board of Control for Cricket in India has unveiled a brand new jersey for Team India days ahead of T20 World Cup 2021. Like the retro jersey, the team is stuck to its navy blue colour, but there is touch of orange colour on both sides and shades of blue on the front. The BCCI’s logo is at the left top corner with three stars on it.

The significance of the three stars represents India’s three-times World Cup victories in its history. In 1983, India won the coveted World Cup under Kapil Dev’s leadership. Then in 2007, MS Dhoni with a bunch of young cricketers, ended the draught of World Cup for India and won the inaugural T20 World Cup and then the prestigious 50-over World Cup in 2011.

Indian Cricket Team captain Virat Kohli along with deputy Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja can be seen wearing the new kit in a photo shared by BCCI on twitter.

The Indian Cricket Team has been donning the dark blue kit in limited-overs format for quite some time. Before the retro jersey, India wore a jersey with a light blue hue. The BCCI named this new kit as ‘Billion Cheers Jersey’, as it represents billions of Indians across world.
