Board of Cricket Council in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah and India captain Rohit Sharma attended the unveiling of India's new kit for the upcoming 2024 T20 World Cup at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. A recent video uploaded by BCCI's official social media handle shows both of them examining the new colours of India first-hand, followed by a discussion between them. At a special event held at the venue, popular German sportswear manufacturer Adidas displayed all the kits, including the training kit, coaching staff kit, and the main kit.

Adidas had previously announced India's new kit through a video on the social media handles, which featured Indian cricket stars Rohit, Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja welcoming the new kit at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamsala. As seen in the video, the new kit boasts a brilliant blend of blue on the main body and light orange sleeves. The kit also consists of two orange stripes running parallel along the waist-side, with three of Adidas's trademark white stripes. The main kit also consists of tri-coloured stripes on its collar.

India have been donning designs by Adidas ever since the BCCI penned a multi-year-contract with them on May 23, 2023. Before Adidas came on board, it was Killer Jeans, a clothing brand by MPL, who were India's kit sponsors. Since the announcement, many of the Indian cricket stars have featured as models in the new colours.

Having already announced their squad for their World Cup campaign beginning on June 5, India stand as one of the favourites to win the competition due to their brilliant form in their recent T20I fixtures.
