New Delhi, September 21, 2023 –With the highly anticipated 2023 ICC World Cup just around the corner, cricket fans across India and the world have been eagerly waiting for a glimpse of the new Team India jersey. The wait is finally over as Adidas, the official kit sponsor of the Indian cricket team, recently unveiled the much-anticipated jersey for the Men in Blue.

The Big Reveal

On September 20th, in a grand launch event, Adidas introduced the new Team India jersey through a captivating video anthem titled “3 ka dream.” This anthem is not just a celebration of the jersey but also a tribute to India’s relentless pursuit of their third men’s ODI World Cup title.

Adidas stepped in as the official kit sponsor of the Indian cricket team earlier this year, taking over from the previous sponsor, “Killer.” The first time the Indian men’s team sported Adidas jerseys was during the World Test Championship final against Australia in June. The upcoming 2023 men’s ODI World Cup will be the second ICC tournament where the Indian team will proudly don the Adidas brand.

What’s New in the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup Kit?

Cricket enthusiasts and fashion-conscious fans will be delighted to know that there are some significant changes to the Team India jersey for the ICC World Cup 2023. One of the most noticeable changes is the replacement of the three white stripes over the shoulder with India’s vibrant tri-color. In the video presentation, players like Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli were seen wearing jerseys adorned with orange, white, and green stripes on the shoulder.

Another striking change is the addition of two stars above the BCCI logo on the chest. These stars symbolize India’s historic victories in the ODI World Cup, first in 1983 and then in 2011. They stand as a testament to India’s remarkable cricketing achievements on the global stage, filling the hearts of fans with immense pride.

“3 Ka Dream” – India’s World Cup Campaign

In an inspiring move, Team India has named their World Cup campaign as ‘3 Ka Dream,’ which translates to “the dream of 3.” In this context, the number 3 signifies India’s dream of securing their third ODI World Cup victory. This campaign embodies the team’s unwavering determination and aspiration to carve their name in cricketing history once more.

As the countdown to the ICC World Cup 2023 continues, the revelation of Team India’s new jersey has added an extra layer of excitement and anticipation to this grand sporting spectacle. With the hopes of an entire nation resting on their shoulders, the Men in Blue are geared up to embark on a journey to fulfill the dream of ‘3 Ka Dream.’

India-Australia: Dress Rehearsal for the World Cup

In a cricketing prelude to the World Cup, India and Australia are all set to engage in a 3-match ODI series starting tomorrow at the PCA stadium in Mohali. This series serves as a dress rehearsal for both teams as they fine-tune their strategies and line-ups for the upcoming World Cup in India, scheduled for October-November.

To maintain the fitness and mental freshness of key players, India has rested senior figures like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya, and Kuldeep Yadav for the first two games. Meanwhile, R Ashwin, who made a surprise return to the ODI squad, will be competing for a spot in the World Cup squad.

KL Rahul will lead the Indian side in the first two games against Australia before Rohit Sharma returns to lead a full-strength squad in the third and final ODI, just ahead of the World Cup kick-off on October 5.

Australia’s skipper, Pat Cummins, who has recovered from an injury, is eager to participate in all three matches in the series. However, Australia will miss the services of Mitchell Starc and Glenn Maxwell in the series opener.

The Road Ahead

The teams will proceed to Indore to play the second ODI on September 24th, and the series will conclude at the Saurashtra Cricket Stadium in Rajkot on September 27th. Intriguingly, India and Australia will face each other once again in their opening match of the World Cup, set to take place in Chennai on October 8th.

Where to Watch the India-Australia ODI Series?

For fans eager to catch the action live, Sports 18 will broadcast the ODI series between India and Australia. Additionally, the JioCinema app will also provide live streaming of the matches.
