The Indian cricket fans are still in their IPL hangover as not finding any cricket on their TV sets at 7:30 PM has been challenging to deal with.
However, to their rescue, is an equally intense international series down under! The Indian team will finally be seen in blue colours post-IPL as they fly to Australia in November. Team India hasn’t been in action for a long time as a series against South Africa was cancelled due to circumstances arising out of the pandemic.
However, there’s a rumor floating around on social media that those blue colors might be reminiscent of a trip down memory lane. Team India is rumored to be donning the retro jersey from the 1992 World Cup. The news has had cricket fans on a nostalgia drive.
