Shikhar Dhawan unveiled the look of the new jersey on social media.
Explosive India opener Shikhar Dhawan has revealed the brand new look of Team India’s white-ball jersey. Indian players will sport this new jersey in the upcoming limited-overs series against Australia starting November 27.
The new-look jersey is of navy blue colour and reminds many of the 1992 World Cup kit. It has India written in bright orange letters, along with new kit sponsor MPL on the right. The jersey also features BCCI logo with three stars on the left and main sponsors BYJU’s at the middle.
“New jersey, renewed motivation. Ready to go,” tweeted Dhawan.
