India had previously made a shift to the dark blue retro jersey during the white-ball series against Australia in 2020. India will kick start their World Cup campaign with two warm-up games against England and Australia on 18 and 20. The team will then lock horns with arch-rivals Pakistan for their opening game of the tournament.
The T20 World Cup will be Virat Kohli’s last assignment as India’s T20 captain
Recently, Virat Kohli announced that he will step down as team India’s T20 captain post the upcoming T20 World Cup. A few days later he also announced that this will be his last year as RCB’s captain and after this season he will play only as a player for the franchise.
India’s head coach Ravi Shastri is also likely to make way for some other candidate post the World Cup. Bowling coach B Arun and fielding coach R Sridhar would also probably be on their last assignment with team India.
Whereas on the other hand, MS Dhoni has been appointed as Team India’s mentor for the mega event. The former skipper has had a successful run with the team as he had led India to all the three ICC trophies glory. His experience is expected to help the Virat Kohli-led side to make a greater impact in the tournament.
