Antigua, Aug 21: With Team India are set to lock horns with West Indies in the first Test in Antigua, starting Thursday (August 21), Virat Kohli and his band have unveiled their Test jerseys with numbers printed on them. Carrying players names and jersey number is the new trend that has been introduced by the ICC.

Pictures of India captain Virat Kohli, his deputy in the longer format Ajinkya Rahane, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rishabh Pant posing in Test whites were shared by the official Instagram handle of Indian Cricket Team. The tradition of printing names and numbers of the players on Test whites started with the World Test Championship.

England were the first team to wear the Test jerseys with names and numbers against Ireland in their first-ever Test match with their neighbours. However, that game wasn't a part of the ICC World Test Championship, which started with the Ashes 2019 between England and Australia.

The first Test match between India and West Indies will begin at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua on Thursday. This will be the first match for both the teams in the ICC World Test Championship.
