Bowling in India Jasprit Bumrah was in a slightly awkward situation on the fifth day of the Hampshire Bowl World Championship final – when he opened the bowling alley against New Zealand, wearing the wrong shirt.
The 27-year-old Bumra, who was left without wickets and allowed 57 runs in New Zealand’s first innings on Tuesday, was seen wearing India’s regular T-shirt with the name of the main sponsor printed in the center.
Boomra bowls all day with the wrong T-shirt before rushing back to the dressing room to change it.
The rules of the International Cricket Council (ICC) provide for the name of the country to be mentioned in the center of the shirt, while the name of the sponsor may be mentioned on the sleeves.
