India's limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma on Tuesday shared an adorable video with his fans on Instagram, where he gave a glimpse of India's new blue jersey for the ICC T20 World Cup. The jersey had Rohit's name at the back with the number 45 written on it. India started their preparations for the tournament with a victory over England in a warm-up match in Dubai on Monday. Rohit did not play in the match as the team management decided to give the likes of Ishan Kishan and KL Rahul some game time. The first round of the tournament started on Sunday, October 17, in Oman. India will begin their campaign against arch-rivals Pakistan on October 24 at the Dubai International stadium. Ahead of the start of their campaign, an excited Rohit Sharma was seen flaunting the India jersey at his hotel room, and now the video of the same is breaking the internet.
“Jumping into my India Blue,” Rohit captioned the clip.
