Virat’s men in orange: Team India to sport new orange jerseys for match against England

The rules mandate that while the host team can keep its usual colours, the visiting team will have to choose jerseys of a different colour. As England also wears blue, team India will have to wear a different colour.

As ICC has changed its rules regarding team jerseys, team India may have to wear jerseys of a different colour than the usual blue for their upcoming match against England. As per media reports, the Indian team will wear orange jerseys for the June 30 match against the hosts of the ICC World Cup 2019. India Today has confirmed the news.

Inspired by the concept of ‘home’ and ‘away’ jerseys in soccer, ICC had tweaked its regulations preventing two teams from wearing the same coloured jerseys in a match. Earlier reports claimed that India might get a darker blue shade with lots of orange on the sleeves and back.

Media reports state that the famous India jersey that earned the name ‘Men in Blue’ for the Indian team in recent years, might be changed into the orange shade. There are some reports that the styling blue jerseys with orange collar and spattering will be reversed to orange jerseys with blue collars and spatterings.

Reports also say that the Indian team had not seen their ‘away’ jerseys until last week. Nike, which sponsors the team jerseys for India, has also been tight-lipped about the details.

Many teams have already revealed their ‘away’ jerseys. While the South African squad was wearing yellow, Bangladesh’s team was seen wearing blue with a lot of red. Australia, New Zealand and West Indies have not changed their jerseys because they are in unique colours.

For the June 22 match against India, team Afghanistan will change their colours and the Indian team will wear the usual blue. Afghanistan has announced their ‘away’ kit which displayed blue jerseys with predominant red splatterings.

According to the ICC schedule, the match against Afghanistan on June 22 at Southampton will be treated as ‘home’ game for India. India will also face West Indies on June 27.
