I like Indian team’s Bleed Blue jersey as blue reflects power and team spirit. The shade of blue of our team’s jersey is very energising and positive, keeping sports and victory in mind. Besides the Indian jersey, I like the Australian jersey. The combination has a lot of energy, boosts spirits, gives a sense of being athletic and is pleasing to the eye. It makes their men look sexy and stand out on the pitch against their opponents. As they are bright and happy colours, it makes them appear more dominant against the opposite team.

Blue is the colour this cricket season with almost five teams sporting different shades. I love the Bleed Blue Indian team jersey. The interesting use of thin pinstripes gives the uniform a contemporary look while making the team look sauve and stylish. The Sri Lankan jersey has a great use of the textured pattern on blue, making the uniform look edgy. I also loved the Scottish team’s jersey.
I love the Indian cricket team, so their jersey is my favourite. It’s a great colour. Apart from India, I also like the West Indies team jersey. It’s a vibrant colour combination, and stands out from the rest.
The jersey I like the most is team India’s. It’s mainly because of the shade of the blue picked, which I think represents the country well.
I am a team India fan, but setting the bias aside, I like the shade of blue used; it is a very fresh colour and stands out on the field as well.

Hairstylist Avani Yashwin picks the top crowning glories of the season
>> I like Kevin Pietersen’s (though he isn’t playing) short messy hair.
>> I like Wayne Parnell from South Africa, not just for his current look but the way he has transitioned his hairstyles. Earlier, it was longer in the centre, which he would tie up like a samurai, which was very interesting.
>> Though short, Shikhar Dhawan has a great hairstyle, which is slightly longer in the centre than the buzz on the sides.
>> New Zealand’s Tom Latham has hair that is a little longer in the centre and short on the sides, though it’s not fully punk and textured nicely.
