India and Australia set to don new kits in upcoming series

After a long break, Team India will be finally back in action against Australia later this month. The two teams are set to battle it out in limited-overs games before moving into the prestigious Border Gavaskar trophy. The upcoming T-20 and One day International series will see Australia and India use new kits.

According to Outlook India, Team India is set to wear a retro kit that was worn in 1992. There is yet to be an official announcement regarding the team kit. It is set to be a navy blue kit with stripes on shoulders.

The upcoming series will also be the first one for India without Nike as kit manufacturer after 15 years of association. The Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) agreed to a lucrative deal with Mobile Premier League (MPL) for a kit sponsorship deal. Along with the MPL logo, Byju’s will also feature on the kits. The edu-tech firm is the title sponsor of Team India.

Meanwhile, the Australian team announced a new kit for the T-20 series on November 11. It is an indigenous design that pays tribute to the involvement of Indigenous Australians in cricket. Mitchel Starc was modelling new kit in the statement released by Cricket Australia.

It is going to be a long gruelling tour for India as they look to retain the Border Gavaskar trophy. The task of winning the trophy again became tougher as BCCI announced that Virat Kohli would miss three tests due to personal reasons. The Indian captain has been in fine form during the Indian Premier League, so it is a massive blow to the team’s plans for this series.

The Indian team travelled to Australia from the UAE on Wednesday, as they are set to go through a quarantine period before playing against hosts at the end of November.
