During the second T20I between India and the West Indies, Suryakumar Yadav was spotted wearing Arshdeep Singh’s jersey. This, after the game was postponed 3 hours earlier on Monday due to a delay in the arrival of ‘critical team luggage’.
This was not the first time an Indian player had been spotted wearing his teammate’s jersey, as fans had previously seen Deepak Hooda wearing Prasidh Krishna’s jersey during the ODI series. Hooda was spotted wearing a taped jersey with a hidden name during the second ODI.
Fans speculated that Hooda may have been wearing Krishna’s jersey, as the number ’24’ had previously been worn by the latter in the previous match.

Similarly, Suryakumar was spotted wearing Arshdeep Singh’s jersey when he came to bat during the second T20I on Monday. This, after Team India skipper Rohit Sharma was prematurely fired on a golden duck.
