New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Wednesday revealed India's official jersey for the upcoming ODI World Cup 2023.
On their official X account, BCCI shared a video featuring India skipper Rohit Sharma, vice-captain Hardik Pandya, and star player Virat Kohli and others as well with the lines "3 ka Dream".
"1983 - the spark. 2011 - the glory. 2023 - the dream," BCCI wrote while posting on X.
The jersey of Men in Blue for the forthcoming ODI WC was unveiled with a song sung by renowned Indian singer Raftaar, titled '3 Ka Dream'. It also showed the enduring support for India and the video signified the dreams of millions of fans to see India win their third ODI World Cup after 1983 and 2011.
To celebrate the tournament to be played in India, the sports brand Adidas brought changes to the jersey and replaced their unique white stripes on the shoulder with the colours of the Tricolour.
The jersey will also hold two stars on the left side of the chest above BCCI’s logo to mark India’s two ODI World Cup wins.
