Team India to wear different jersey in Tests, Here is why

It was an emotional moment for the Indian cricket fans when the BCCI launched the new jersey for the Australian tour. The fans could recreate the memory as it was the same retro jersey that India donned in the 1992 World Cup.

It was actually the first-ever World Cup where coloured jerseys were used. Before the 1992 World Cup, the tournaments were used to play in white jerseys. The Indian team will don the new Test jersey in the upcoming series against Australia.

Each and everyone knows that the Test jersey should be completely white. But, the only change in India’s new Test jersey is their sponsor’s logo. In the modern-day cricket, the sponsorships have taken over a huge part of the cricket industry.

The Indian cricket team’s current sponsor is ‘BYJU’S’ who paid more money to increase the size of their logo in the Indian jersey. Due to the pandemic situation all over the world, ICC has approved the boards to increase the size of the sponsor’s logo by getting extra money.

As a result of COVID-19, many cricket boards have suffered a huge loss. The teams like England, Pakistan, West Indies and New Zealand are already using bigger logos in their jersey.

The Indian team clinched the three-match T20I series after losing the ODI series against Australia. Both the teams will play four Test games which starts on 17th December.
