Mumbai Indians unveil new jersey for IPL 2023 season

Xtra Time Web Desk: Five-time champions Mumbai Indians on Friday unveiled its official playing kit for the upcoming IPL 2023 season. Conceptualized by designer duo Shantanu & Nikhil, the new jersey captures the essence of Mumbai in the iconic blue & gold colours. The franchise unveiled its new jersey on its official Twitter handle.

There are not many changes though in the new jersey which features a blend of dark and light shades of blue with stripes of gold on either side. The inspiration behind the franchise’s jersey is driven from the city, the culture, the struggle and the dream beyond effort and excellence.

Rohit Sharma led Mumbai Indians will look to change its fortune with the new jersey after a poor last season when the franchise won only 4 out of 14 league games.  The five-time champions kickstart their IPL 2023 campaign against Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Chinnaswamy stadium on April 2.

The theme of the new MI jersey is running behind dreams. The designers carefully picked elements almost synonymous to the city like the famous Kaali Peeli ride, Sea link, the skylines. The new jersey brings in the euphoria of street into prints, the gold line navigates its path on jersey like every dreamer who zig zags in the city running behind dreams, eventually meeting their best selves.
