Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], September 18 (ANI): Team India's jersey for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2022 was unveiled on Sunday.

"To every cricket fan out there, this one's for you. Presenting the all-new T20 Jersey - One Blue Jersey by @mpl_sport. HarFanKiJersey TeamIndia MPLSports CricketFandom," tweeted BCCI.

Team India will sport this jersey for the first time ever during the three-match T20I series against Australia, which will take place from September 20 onwards. It will also wear it during its three-match T20I series against South Africa, which will start from September 28 onwards.
