After the official kit for the Indian Cricket Team at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup on October 13th was announced, the jersey was exhibited at Burj Khalifa, one of Dubai’s most famous skyscrapers in the world. BCCI Chairman Sulav Gangley said the Indian cricket team is supported around the world and there is no better way to celebrate the enthusiasm of its fans.
“The Team India World Cup jersey will be bigger and better by projecting the iconic Burj Khalifa,” BCCI said on Twitter, sharing a video of the historic moment.
India will launch a big hit with Pakistan at the mega event on October 24th. The team led by Virat Kohli can be seen wearing new gear in practice matches between England and Australia. The jersey was officially announced by BCCI on Wednesday.
The T20 World Cup will be held in the United Arab Emirates and Oman, but India remains the official venue. The tournament was previously scheduled to take place in India, but has been moved to the Middle East for the Covid-19 pandemic and monsoon season in India.
India and Pakistan have met five times at the T20 World Cup. India won on all five occasions.
India and Pakistan only compete in multinational competitions such as the ICC event and the Asian Cup, so this unusual battle is drawing attention for its rarity.
The T20 World Cup, scheduled to begin on October 17, will include India and Pakistan in the same group, with New Zealand, Afghanistan and two undecided qualifiers.
