T20 World Cup 2021: The Twenty over World Cup is all set to begin from October 23. Australia will lock horns against South Africa with most of the matches being doubleheaders each day.
Moreover, the T20 World Cup 2021 will be held in two countries. The UAE and Oman will be hosting the T20 World Cup under the guidance of the BCCI. It is because India had the original rights of hosting.
But there have been few concerns regarding India’s health infrastructure and its capability to cover itself from the upcoming third wave of Coronavirus.
However, both the International Cricket Council and the BCCI decided that it would be better to move the International tournament to a safer country in terms of the virus.
And even the Indian Premier League tournament has been taking place in the UAE for a month now. Various international players as well as the Indian players have gotten the much-needed practice from the IPL ahead of the T20 World Cup 2021.
Moreover, this World Cup will also be Virat Kohli’s last as the T20 captain of India. The 33-year-old player was reportedly removed from the post due to his lack of ICC trophies in the cabinet.
Virat Kohli will enter the T20 World Cup 2021 under a lot of pressure since the BCCI will be keenly watching him. Few reports also suggest that Virat Kohli could be removed from the 50 over captaincy as well if he does not win the World Cup next month.
But the Indian squad is too skillful to lose this World Cup in the UAE. India has talented players like Ishan Kishan, Surya Kumar Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Virat Kohli, etc. Moreover, even MS Dhoni will be mentoring the team for the World Cup.
T20 World Cup 2021: India unveils their official jersey for the T20 Campaign
The BCCI and its officials revealed the official jersey of Team India for the T20 World Cup 2021. Various cricketing stars like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja, Surya Kumar Yadav etc can be seen in New Jersey.
But India has designed their jersey darker as can be seen in the picture. Moreover, there has been mixed reactions over the new jersey which will replace the previously warren retro jersey.
However, nothing can be changed as the jersey has been unveiled and it is confirmed that India will be only wearing that jersey. But team India will also be hoping to do better for the team in terms of the overall performance.
The men in Blue are trophyless since the ICC Champions Trophy in 2013. And the International tournament was won under the captaincy of MS Dhoni in England. Plus Virat Kohli will be desperate for an ICC Trophy this time around.
