The Board of Cricket for Control in India (BCCI) on Friday unveiled Team India’s away kit for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
Virat Kohli & Co. will sport a new orange jersey in their match against England at Edgbaston on Sunday, June 30.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) had asked teams to wear an away jersey if the teams they were facing also wore jerseys of the same colour. Both England and India wear blue, and with the latter being the away team in Birmingham, they went in with an orange jersey.
Here’s how fans reacted to Team India’s new orange jersey:

This is the first Indian kit after 1992 WC that I want to buy. Dark shade of blue looks superb. https://t.co/dJbBwyZJUW

I don't hate the orange part but a general complaint with away jerseys in this tournament is that they've mostly been a slight variation of the colours normally associated with the teams. It would have been better if all teams went for radically different jersey colours. #CWC19 https://t.co/Gm7Jh0WoH1

Love the front. Little more blue at the back and we could use this for at least T20Is 👌🏼 https://t.co/Sts29S8GHd
