IND vs AUS: Team India to wear 1992 World Cup jersey
Sydney: The Indian team, which is on a two-month-long Australia tour which is all set to begin from November 27, confirmed that the players will wear the retro kit of 1992 World Cup for their three-match ODI series.
Shikhar Dhawan shared a glimpse of India’s new ODI jersey which resembles the kit India wore in the 1992 ODI World Cup played in Australia and New Zealand.
“New jersey, renewed motivation, ready to go,” tweeted Dhawan on Tuesday.

The kit is of navy blue colour and has coloured stripes on the shoulder and has the names of Team India’s new principle sponsors Byju’s and kit sponsors MPL.
Notably, Cricket Australia started the trend of wearing retro jerseys during India’s last tour in 2018-19. At that time Australia sported their 1985 World Series kit.
Earlier this year, Australia and New Zealand both wore their 1999 World Cup uniforms.
India will take on Australia in three ODIs, three T20Is and four Tests.
The three-match ODI series will be played at the SCG (November 27, 29) and the Manuka Oval (December 2), followed by the three-match T20I series at the Manuka Oval (December 4) and the SCG (December 6, 8).
After that the two teams will compete against each other in the four-match Test series beginning December 17 at the Adelaide Oval.
