This is the new India cricket shirt 2019, the new Indian jersey for the 2019 Cricket World Cup and other games during the 19/20 season. The new India CWC top was officially unveiled by kit makers Nike on 1 March, 2019, just before the country’s ODI series against reigning WC champions Australia. It will be first worn by the national team in their clash against Justin Langer’s men on March 2, 2019.
From the Men’s team the likes of Indian skipper Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Prithvi Shaw and former captain MS Dhoni were seen modelling the new uniform. Key women’s team players like Harmanpreet Kaur and teenager Jemimah Rodrigues were also present at the event.
The new Indian WC 2019 jersey features the date as well as the latitude and longitude of the venues of their three World Cup triumphs so far (1983 World Cup at Lords, 2007 T20 World Cup in Johannesburg and 2011 World Cup in Mumbai)
The shirt also has tri colour detailing (the colours of the Indian flag) inside the neck. It features a darker shade of blue on the front, with a lighter one on the sleeves, as can be seen in the pictures below.
OPPO are principal sponsors of this Indian 2019 ODI jersey. India have been world champions in the 50 over format twice, winning in 1983 and 2011 under the leadership of legendary all rounder Kapil Dev and Mahendra Singh Dhoni respectively.
The World Cup in England will be played from May 30 in England. This time around it features only ten teams, with a round robin format being employed by the ICC. After two warm up games against New Zealand and Bangladesh, India will lock horns with Faf du Plessis’ South Africa in their tournament opener on June 5 at the Rose Bowl. It will be a tough clash for Virat Kohli’s men- the Proteas would’ve already played two actual tournament games before this fixture on the South Coast.
Edit – India also wore an away kit in their game against England.
