Tricolor surprise in India’s World Cup jersey, Internet calls it a masterstroke. Cricket


With only two weeks left for the ICC World Cup 2023 to begin, a little spice has been added to the excitement. The ICC on Wednesday launched the anthem of this edition of the World Cup to be held in India. While the anthem, ‘Dil Jashn Bole’ received mixed reactions on social media, a few hours later, India’s kit partner Adidas came out with an anthem of its own for the Indian cricket team. The 2 minute 21 second anthem called “Asambhav Nahi Ye Sapna, 3 Ka Dream Hai Apna” is based on India’s quest to win the third ODI World Cup.

Kapil Dev led India to its first ODI World Cup title in 1983 and then MS Dhoni ended a long wait with India’s second ODI World Cup win in 2011. Meanwhile, India won another World Cup in 2007 but that was in T20. Format.

The Adidas anthem features India captain Rohit Sharma, superstar Virat Kohli, vice-captain Hardik Pandya, young Shubman Gill, fast bowlers Mohammed Siraj and Shardul Thakur, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and spinner Kuldeep Yadav.

“1983 – Spark. 2011 – Glory.

2023 – Dream.

This dream is not impossible, #3KaDream is ours,” BCCI tweeted.

Apart from the catchy rap with the message of ending India’s long wait to win an ICC trophy, the video also gives a glimpse of India’s World Cup jersey.

India will have tricolor stripes in World Cup 2023

There has been a major change in the jersey worn by India in the recently concluded Asia Cup. The three white stripes on the shoulders have been replaced by the tricolor of India. The jersey that Rohit, Kohli and others were seen wearing in the video had orange, white and green stripes on the shoulders.

Netizens believe that Adidas’ move was a masterstroke and the tricolor stripes took India’s World Cup jersey to another level. This is not the only change that will be seen in India’s jersey from the Asia Cup. There will be no Dream 11 logo during the World Cup as the ICC does not allow anything other than the team name to be placed on the center of the jersey.

Despite not winning an ICC title since the Champions Trophy in 2013, India will enter the ODI World Cup as one of the favourites. The main reasons behind this are their strong team, recent form and familiarity with home conditions. India prepared well for the event by winning the Asia Cup for a record eighth time.

The two-time ODI World Cup champions will begin their campaign against Australia on October 8 in Chennai. The opening match of the tournament will be played between England and New Zealand in Ahmedabad which will be a repeat of the final of the previous edition.
