BCCI launches fan-inspired Team India’s new jersey ahead of T20 World Cup 2021

On Wednesday, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) took to social media to reveal the new jersey of Team India ahead of the T20 World Cup 2021. The multi-team tournament will be played from October 17 to November 14 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Oman. India will start their campaign with a much-awaited clash against arch-rivals Pakistan in Dubai on October 24.

The new kit has been named the ‘Billion Cheers Jersey’ by BCCI. This kit will replace the current 1992 World Cup pattern jersey. The jersey comes in shades of Prussian blue and royal blue colours.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli, vice-captain Rohit Sharma, stylish batter KL Rahul, star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and frontline pacer Jasprit Bumrah were seen flaunting the new kit in the picture shared by the Indian cricket board.

“Presenting the Billion Cheers Jersey! The patterns on the jersey are inspired by the billion cheers of the fans,” tweeted BCCI.

MPL Sports – the official kit sponsor of Indian cricket team – said it’s the first occasion when fans have been memorialised on a jersey as it carries their chants and cheers, which are transformed into soundwave patterns.

“This is the first time in the history of Indian cricket that fans have been memorialised on a jersey. It carries their chants and cheers from iconic past matches, transformed into unique soundwave patterns,” stated a release from MPL Sports as quoted by India TV.

BCCI President Sourav Ganguly expressed his excitement, stating the jersey is a way to celebrate the love and support Indian players get around the globe.

“The Indian cricket team enjoys support not just in India but around the world, and there’s no better way to celebrate their excitement and energy than through this jersey,” said Ganguly.

“This will undoubtedly provide the team with the much-needed enthusiastic support in their quest to emerge as the T20 champions of the world. We are also pleased to see that MPL Sports continues to deliver merchandise that is widely affordable and accessible,” he added.

IPL 2021: ‘Umpires will sleep better’ – AB de Villiers jokes during tribute speech for Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli is known for his animated reactions and lively celebrations on the cricket field. He never leaves an opportunity to express his emotions, be it if he is batting or fielding.

Even in the recently concluded Eliminator game of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in Sharjah, Kohli was involved in a heated argument with on-field umpire Virender Sharma.

During the contest, as many as three decisions of Sharma were overturned after successful reviews, and interestingly, all decisions went against RCB. During the seventh over of KKR innings bowled by spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, KKR batter Rahul Tripathi was given not out by the umpire, but after Kohli went upstairs, Sharma had to reverse the decision. This made the RCB skipper angry as he was seen talking to the umpire animatedly.

Meanwhile, RCB star AB de Villiers paid tribute to outgoing captain Kohli in a video shared by the franchise on its official YouTube channel. Notably, Kohli, who had announced to leave RCB’s captaincy on the resumption of UAE leg, ended his nine-year stint as skipper with a four-wicket loss to KKR.

De Villiers pulled Kohli’s leg over the entire incident but also thanked him for leading the team the way he did throughout his tenure.

“The word that comes to mind is grateful [on having Virat Kohli as the captain]. The way you have captained the team has certainly inspired everyone. When it comes to your leadership, you have had a much bigger impact than you will ever understand. There are stories that you don’t ever hear of people’s lives that you have touched, not only on the cricket ground but away from it as well,” said De Villiers.

“That’s much more important than a trophy, which I still believe will come your way. You have done a great job, but that book is not finished yet. Whatever you have done for us, we won’t forget it. Thanks for all the memories, and I think some of the umpires will sleep a bit better, very happy for them,” he added.
