In the three-match One-day International (ODI) series against Australia, team India will don a retro themed jersey based on the 1992 World Cup. Opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan shared the glimpse of the new kit on Twitter and soon after him, new comer T Natarajan was seen donning the same jersey as he took to social media. The new jersey has received mixed reactions but most of the fans seem to be upset about the presence of sponsor logos over.
There is a general view that too many sponsor logos have somewhat spoiled the simple and rich design of the team India jersey. Fans took to Twitter and didn’t shy away from expressing their opinions. Here are some of the reactions we found on Twitter. Team India New Jersey: T Natarajan Shares Glimpse of Indian Cricket Team’s Retro Kit Ahead of India vs Australia ODI Series (See Pic)
