ICC World Cup 2019: Team India to Wear New Jersey Against England on June 30?
So far, India has put up a spectacular show at the ongoing ICC World Cup 2019. They’re keen to continue their domination in the ODI showpiece. Virat Kohli has made clear that they won’t show any complacency against any team at the quadrennial event.
Meanwhile, India is highly-likely going to wean an orange jersey against hosts England. India will play their away game on June 30 at Edgbaston in Birmingham.
With blue jersey a traditional for India, now they’re all set to wear an orange jersey which will be considered their away game against the Three Lions. As per the reports, the jersey will have a blue strip with sleeves of orange colour.
Furthermore, England will don the same kit while being as the hosts of the mega ICC tourney.
It is pertinent to mention that Afghanistan and Sri Lankan players had donned the different hues when it came to their away game.
ICC has taken a cue from Football:
Earlier, with most of the teams have blue jerseys, the world cricket governing body; International Cricket Council (ICC), has further adopted a concept of the football world.
“For televised ICC events all participating teams will be required to provide for two different coloured kits, except for the host country who has a preference in the choice of colour. And may, if it chooses to do so, provide only one coloured kit to be worn in all matches throughout the event,” the ICC maintained in its release.
Thus, ICC gave you a green signal to don two different jerseys for the mega ICC event.
“In advance of the event, the teams will be notified which coloured kit will be worn in each match,” ICC’s release added.
Concurrently, India sits at fourth spot of the ICC World Cup 2019 with seven points in four games. India has won three matches, whereas, their game against New Zealand was washed out.
However, it remains to be seen whether the jersey doing the rounds on the internet is the same jersey that India will don for the heavy-weight clash against England.
The brand new away jersey has a darker blue shade. Pertinently, India has donned dark blue jersey during the 1992 World Cup.
Have a look at an orange jersey which has gone viral on the internet:
