For luck's sake, stick to old jerseys, BCCI tells Ind players
The Indian cricketers sported the new jerseys only last month during a glitzy unveiling ceremony but for the actual event starting tomorrow, they have been told to wear the old design only.
"The players have been asked to wear the jersey they wore during the 2011 World Cup," a BCCI official said. India, the inaugural champions of World T20, could not even reach the semifinals in the 2009 and 2010 editions but given their 50-over World Cup triumph last year, there is considerable hype about them ahead of their year's WT20.
Interestingly, the cricketers were quite happy with the new jersey design when it was unveiled. "Now that we have a different T20 shirt, there will be a strong association between the format and the jersey," skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni had said.
"I play with my heart and I play for the national flag. I like this jersey because the national colours are on my heart," aggressive opener Virender Sehwag had added.
