New Delhi, Jan 12: In a country obsessed with cricket, the Indian cricket team jersey has always been a symbol of the nation’s support for the men and women in blue.
From streets to stadiums, the jersey symbolizes the pride for millions of cricket fans and provides inspiration to thousands of young cricketers who aspire to represent the country at the world stage.
