New Delhi. Team India had to face defeat in the second T20 International between India and West Indies at Warner Park in St Kitts. This match was quite exciting, but during the game one special thing caught the attention of the fans. This special thing was the jersey of an Indian player. This jersey was – Arshdeep Singh’s. At least three cricketers of the Indian team were seen wearing the jersey named ‘Arshdeep’ and this caused a lot of confusion.
Suryakumar Yadav and Avesh Khan were the other two who were seen wearing the jersey. Apart from these two, Arshdeep Singh himself wore his jersey. However, the reason behind why this happened could not be revealed. But such issues were seen in the previous series also. Deepak Hooda was seen wearing the famous Krishna jersey during the ODI series, but the name was taped. However, even then the exact reason why Hooda was wearing Krishna’s jersey was not known, but surely it is expected to be one of the problems in future.
