BCCI reveals new team India jersey with Adidas
Earlier this month on June 3, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), along with German sports Adidas, did a grand reveal of the Indian cricket team’s new jersey. This comes after Adidas signed a new deal with BCCI to design and manufacture all the Indian national team jerseys. The deal covers both matchday and training jerseys and for all the Indian cricket teams, whether senior or junior.
Ever since the jerseys were revealed, fans have gone buzzing on social media. Adidas India even released a video of Indian men’s and women’s players wearing the matchday jersey on Instagram. Ever since the post was uploaded, it went viral on social media. Fans began posting their reactions towards photos of their favourite cricket stars in the new team jerseys.
BCCI set to omit three stripes of Adidas logo from team India’s new jersey
According to various reports released on June 5, the BCCI will have to remove the trademark three stripes of Adidas from team India’s jersey for the upcoming World Test Championship (WTC) Final 2023. A few days back, Adidas revealed the new jersey with the three stripes visible on the shoulder of the players.
However, new reports have indicated that the three stripes will be removed. According to sources, the reason behind the omission is due to the certain restrictions imposed by the International Cricket Council (ICC). The ICC has previously issued various restrictions regarding the showcasing of the sponsor logos on the jersey of teams. However, some fans have noted that England were allowed to use the same trademark three stripes of Adidas on the shoulder of the players back in the past. The England men’s team jersey sported the same logo for the 2016 T20 World Cup jersey.
