Evolution of Indian Cricket Jersey

The Indian cricket team continues  with colored jersey  for a few decades now. During  the last few years, the Indian cricke jersey has either changed or modified. From silly fashion disasters to stylish designs, the cricketers have worn the colors proudly and with honor.

Let’s have a glimpse at how India’s ODI jersey that has changed over the years:

During the late 1980

Jersey were in simple color. No sponsor, no brand name, no team name were there on the cricket clothing. The things were plain and simple. No team name, no sponsors and no brand.

During 1992

The Indian team changed to dark blue for participating in 1992 World Cup showing name players and country on it.

In the year 1993

This year India unexpectedly leveraged  to yellow with a stripe of blue running  in the front,  with the name of the team. The track pants, though, were in light blue.

Sometime in 1994

The yellow continued on the jersey,  but light blue color began to dominate on it.

In the period of 1996

During the World Cup, all the countries had a same jersey. Each country had its individual color, but the colorful band from corner to corner of the chest and back, suggestive of the assistance of the other teams at the tournament.

In 1997

With the growing strength of  BCCI,  the appearance of its logo on the Indian jersey became inevitable. In 1997, there was a prominent BCCI Logo from the left to the centre in dark blue.

During 1998

This jersey was  blue in color with team name in yellow and the jersey had the BCCI logo in the form of watermark  all over it. In this year India changed its jersey again. This time, the jersey was blue in colors with a stripe of the tricolor on the shoulders and wings. There was one more change this year. This time its color was dark blue with the country name “India” in a ighter tone.

In 1999

The yellow color was back and the yellow corner of the symbol enormously enlarged across the chest and arms. India donned this jersey for the 1999 World Cup in England. Next year the color changed to light navy blue and the emblem at the center.

During 2001

This was one of the last jerseys that had no sponsor across the front. The general tone was light blue with India written vertically on the right side in dark blue.

During 2002-03

The jersey was totally light blue with the tricolor band in a paintbrush style from the bottom to the center of the shirt.

During 2007-08

This jersey came in after for short a while. The transform was a band of tricolor going up the right side of the jersey in a whirl. This was also used in the  year 2007 World Cup.

During 2009-10

This one was similar to the earlier one except that the color had altered from light blue to navy blue.

In 2012

In this year, the tricolor had been changed to the left take on with the emblem apparently at the centre of it. Sahara, this time, was across the chest.


The jersey has been customised again in time for the most recent World Cup. There is no tricolor anywhere. It is plain blue with the sponsor, the team name in the front. The pocket lining of the track pants is also orange.


The new jersey orange and grey is noticeably similar to the one the team donned in 2008-2009. The Indian team was preparing for the forthcoming Test against Afghanistan in a new jersey.
