The reason behind this was revealed later, which is that the jersey Pant wore was worn by India during the recently concluded T20 World Cup in UAE. That jersey had the T20 World Cup 2021 logo on it and Pant has taped it off as it is not allowed to use the ICC logo in bilateral series’. However, the other Indian players were spotted with regular jerseys with the branding of the team India’s current sponsor – BYJU’s on it.
