New Delhi. There are only a few days left for the start of the T20 World Cup. But, before that, a kind of war has started between India and Pakistan and the reason for this has been the new jersey of the T20 World Cup of Pakistan team. In the picture of this jersey that has surfaced on social media, the name of UAE is written on the logo of the tournament instead of India. Whereas India is the host country of T20 World Cup. Due to Corona, this tournament is not being held in India but in UAE and Oman. But the hosting is in the hands of India. Now there is a possibility of deepening controversy on this.
According to the rules of the International Cricket Council (ICC), in all the tournaments that are being held under the ICC banner, all the participating teams should be shown on the right side of their chest and the name of the tournament with the name of the host country and the event of the tournament. It is mandatory to write the year of India is the host of T20 World Cup 2021. In such a situation, it is necessary to have the name of India written on the jersey of all the countries. But in the picture of jerseys of many teams that came out on Thursday, Pakistan’s jersey was completely different. It was to be written ‘ICC Men’s T20 World Cup India 2021’, while UAE was written on the jersey.
India’s name not on Pakistan jersey
In a picture that has gone viral on social media, Pakistan captain Babar Azam can be seen wearing the team’s new jersey for the T20 World Cup. In this jersey, the name of UAE is written in place of India as the host of the tournament, while the name of India is written on the jerseys of all the other teams that have come out. However, the PCB has not yet officially launched the jersey. This picture has surfaced only on social media.
In such a situation, it has to be seen whether the PCB launches this jersey or keeps the name of India as the host on the team’s jersey under the set rules. If this does not happen then there is every possibility of a dispute. At present, nothing has been said from the side of ICC and BCCI.
India-Pakistan match on October 24
The bitter relations between India and Pakistan are not hidden from anyone. In such a situation, if there is even a little truth in this jersey, then this move of PCB can increase the tension between the cricket boards of both the countries. Let us tell you that in the T20 World Cup, India and Pakistan will compete on October 24. Both the teams will start their campaign from this match. India has a great record against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup. Team India has defeated Pakistan in all 5 matches of T20 World Cup.
India did not lose to Pakistan in T20 World Cup
In 2007, Team India defeated Pakistan in the group stage and final. Apart from this, Team India was also successful in winning in 2012, 2014 and 2016.
