The Board of Control For Cricket In India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah and Team India skipper Rohit Sharma unveiled the Men in Blue's new T20I jersey at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday, May 12.

India's new jersey for the shortest format of the game was unveiled ahead of the T20 World Cup 2024. The new jersey was already announced by the apparel giant Adidas some days ago. Now, Jay Shah and Rohit Sharma decided to present the new jersey in front of the media in Ahmedabad.

In a video shared by BCCI on its X handle (formerly Twitter), Jay Shah and Rohit Sharma were seen having a look at the jersey and practice kit before presenting the new jersey in front of the media. India skipper also signed on the jersey.

The Men in Blue's new jersey is completely different from the all-blue jersey they donned in the previous edition of the T20 World Cup and the T20I bilateral series thereafter. The new jersey has tri-colour strips on the V-shaped neckline, with a blend of blue on front and back, and orange colour on the sleeves.

Meanwhile, India squad will be departing for the USA in two batches. The first batch will be reportedly leaving on May 24. The first cohort will l comprise players from teams that did not qualify for the playoffs in the current IPL season. While the remaining players will leave after the season gets concludes.

India are clubbed in Group A alongside hosts USA, arch-rivals Pakistan, Canada and Ireland. The Men in Blue will begin their title quest against Ireland on June 5, followed by a high-voltage clash against Men in Green at the newly built Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York on June 9.

Rohit Sharma-led side will play their next group stage games against hosts USA and Canada on June 12 and 15, respectively. India will look to finish in the top 2 and qualify for the Super 8s.

India aim to end 11-year ICC title drought at the T20 World Cup 2024

Rohit Sharma-led Men in Blue will be aiming to end their ICC title drought at the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024, slated to take place in the USA and the West Indies on June 1.

The last time India won the ICC title was in the 2013 Champions Trophy under the captaincy of MS Dhoni. Since then, India didn't win any major trophies. The Men in Blue reached the ODI World Cup final after winning 10 matches on the trot, including the semifinal against New Zealand, but suffered a heartbreaking defeat to the sixth-time champions Australia.

India are among the strong favourites to win the T20 World Cup this time despite not having won the trophy after the inaugural edition of the tournament. Rohit Sharma and boys reached the semifinal in the previous edition of the tournament but was thrashed by England by 10 wickets.
