The new Indian shirt caught the attention of several fans when they noticed an odd yellow patch on the back, here is all you need to know about the yellow patch on the test cricket jersey of team India by Adidas
In recent action, the Indian Test squad overcame a depleted West Indies team in Dominica by a huge margin of an innings and 141 runs.
What is the meaning of the yellow patch on the back of India cricket team Adidas jersey
R Ashwin and debutant Yashaswi Jaiswal were the standout performers, with the Mumbai batsman scoring a mammoth 171 runs and the Tamil Nadu star taking 10 wickets. A yellow patch on the back of the new Indian jersey that was placed above the players’ names, however, caught the attention of several onlookers during this lopsided game.
On social media, there were rumours that it was some kind of patch that fends off mosquitoes. However, it looks that the patch sports the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) logo after speaking with Adidas, the official kit sponsor of Team India.
The Star of India emblem served as the inspiration for the BCCI logo. According to Sridhar Acharyulu, the Information Commissioner, the logo was created by the Indian Government in 1928 and resembles the Star of India by roughly 90%, as reported by the Economic Times.
On the neck of the Australian jersey, there is a patch that resembles the “Walkabout Wickets” work of Australian native art. The artist behind this is Aunty Fiona Clarke, who is the great-great-granddaughter of “Mosquito,” a pioneering Aboriginal performer who toured England in 1868. The team’s commitment to reconciliation and finding common ground with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is symbolised by the team’s shirt symbol, according to Cricket Australia.

Meanwhile, the squad’s jerseys garnered positive reviews from the crowd, especially since the team name was printed on the front as opposed to the lead shirt sponsor’s name as it has been in the past. Dream11 has now occupied that position after acquiring the right to serve as the team’s new jersey sponsor earlier this month.
India’s captain, Rohit Sharma, posted a selfie on his Instagram stories while wearing the shirt. Some fans have taken exception to the new Dream11 symbol, which has taken the place of the team’s name that was embroidered on the jersey during the WTC final. A few images of his colleagues sporting the new uniform have also surfaced on Twitter and during its revelation, the fans were really not impressed with the Dream 11 logo on it.
