Sitecore Date Picker is not working in IE11

Being on Sitecore 9.2 and SXA 1.9 we want to use the OOTB date Picker field on Sitecore Forms which is working fine on Chrome but broken in IE11.

In IE 11 it simply not behaving as date picker but as a text box, as a result people trying to enter date from different parts of world getting validation message as they do not know which date format to use?

We reached out to Sitecore Support and got to know that this behavior is already registered as an existing bug. Suggestion from support team to  modify the ~\Views\FormBuilder\FieldTemplates\Date.cshtml file by injecting additional script logic. Here are some useful examples:
