Virat Kohli-led India will wear an orange jersey in the upcoming World Cup 2019 match against England at Edgbaston in Birmingham on Sunday.
This will be the first time that India will be seen sporting two different jerseys in the quadrennial event after the ICC introduced the concept of home and away ‘jerseys’ for this edition’s World Cup.
According to the ICC rulebook: “For televised ICC events all participating teams will be required to provide for two different coloured kits, except for the host country who has 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. In advance of the event, the teams will be notified which coloured kit will be worn in each match.”
Nike, the official apparel sponsor of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), has also unveiled the orange jersey which Team India will be wearing in their next World Cup match.
“The ODI and Away Kit designs launched this year are inspired by the young new generation of India and the fearless spirit of the national teams,” said Nike in their official statement.
