The 2021 edition of the T20 World Cup that is awaited by cricketing fans across the globe is fast approaching. In just four days, the short format tournament will kickstart. Oman and Papua New Guinea will lock horns in the inaugural match of the tournament.
Ahead of the tournament, the Board of Control for Cricket in India(BCCI) had released the new jersey for Men in Blue that closely resembles the jersey donned by the Indian players for the 1992 edition of the World Cup.
The BCCI took to Twitter to drop the look of the new jersey that will be worn by the Indian Cricketers. The star players of Indian cricket posed with the new jersey that is thick blue in color.
In the picture shared by BCCI, skipper Virat Kohli, Hitman Rohit Sharma, Stylish batsman KL Rahul, all-rounder Sir Ravindra Jadeja and speedster Jasprit Bumrah struck a pose in the new jersey. The Cricket governing body had called the new jersey 'Billion Cheers jersey'.
The cricket authority also said that the fans can get their Cricket Jersey from the official website of mobile gaming application MPL Sports, which had sponsored the new kit.
