Team India’s Jersey for ICC World Cup 2023
Adidas has revealed Team India’s jersey for the upcoming ICC World Cup 2023. The upcoming tournament is a historic one for India as they will be hosting the ODI World Cup alone for the very first time. In the past, India had co-hosted the World Cup on three occasions – 1987, 1996 and 2011. The tournament will be played across ten venues – Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru, Pune, Hyderabad, Delhi, Dharamsala and Lucknow. A total of ten teams will be fighting it out in the thirteenth edition of the ICC ODI World Cup. The competition is scheduled to be played from October 5 to November 19.
With just over two weeks remaining before the ICC World Cup 2023 gets underway, Adidas, Team India’s official kit sponsor, has unveiled the jersey for the Men in Blue. On Wednesday (September 20), Adidas posted a video on their social media platforms to release the jersey.
Vibrant Tricolor Stripes
In a notable departure from previous designs, the iconic three white stripes on the shoulders of the jersey have been replaced with vibrant tricolor stripes. This bold move serves as a testament to India’s rich cultural heritage and national pride.
Commemorating Past Glories
The jersey also features two stars above the BCCI logo, symbolizing India’s two triumphs in the ODI World Cup – in 1983 and 2011. These stars are a proud reminder of India’s cricketing achievements on the world stage.
‘3 Ka Dream’ Campaign
In an inspiring move, Team India has named their World Cup campaign as ‘3 Ka Dream,’ which roughly translates to “the dream of 3.” Here, the number 3 symbolizes India’s dream of securing their third ODI World Cup victory. This campaign reflects the team’s determination and aspiration to etch their name in cricketing history once again.
As cricket enthusiasts eagerly await the commencement of the ICC World Cup 2023, the unveiling of Team India’s jersey adds an extra layer of excitement and anticipation to this grand sporting spectacle. With the nation’s hopes pinned on their cricketing heroes, the Men in Blue are all set to embark on a journey to realize the dream of ‘3 Ka Dream.’
