Cricket World Cup: On reports that India will wear alternate jersey against Pakistan, BCCI said this

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) honorary treasurer Ashish Shelar on Sunday said India will not wear the alternate match kit during their high-octane ICC World Cup clash against Pakistan on October 14. And Pakistan will face each other in the World Cup match at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

Rejecting media reports that India will wear an alternative kit for the game, Shelar said in a statement, “We categorically reject the media reports that Team India will wear an alternative match kit against Pakistan. These reports are absolutely baseless.” And it is someone’s work.” Imagination. The Men in Blue will play in India’s colors – blue – in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023,” he said.

Notably, India wore an alternate kit during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Since both England and India wore blue in the tournament, Team India wore a darker shade of blue with orange sleeves during their match with England.

India have made a great start in the World Cup 2023 by defeating the mighty Australians in their opening match. While Virat Kohli and KL Rahul created a stir with their bat in the match, there were some bitter moments too.

Notorious social media influencer and serial pitch invader Daniel Jarvis aka Jarvo was caught by security officials at the MA Chidambaram Stadium after he entered the field wearing India Blues ahead of the start of the World Cup match against Australia on Sunday.

The ICC banned Jarvo from participating in further matches in the tournament. But the question is how did he get access to the VIP area and how could he breach multiple security layers to enter the Field of Play (FOP).

When PTI inquired about the violation, an ICC spokesperson said, “The individual concerned has been banned from participating in any further games at the event and the matter is in the hands of Indian authorities.”

This is the fourth time that the Englishman, considered rowdy everywhere in the UK, has managed to breach security in a match involving India.

This must have embarrassed the ICC as well as the BCCI because when the Indian team was standing in the line for the march past, Jarvo, wearing the Indian jersey, entered the venue very comfortably and came close to the team’s biggest star Virat Kohli. Were trying to.

After being initially shocked, the Indian team security officer immediately caught the man and took him out of the venue, although Kohli was not happy about it at all.

Jarvo was banned from English grounds after repeatedly showing loopholes in England’s security system by entering the field of play at will during the 2021 series against India.
