ICC World Cup 2019: Revealed! Team India’s orange jersey for away matches

Team India has reportedly revealed its alternate orange colour jersey for away matches in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup. The BCCI had earlier revealed the Indian jersey for its home matches in the ODI showpiece event.  Virat Kohli-led India will don this jersey for their away match against hosts England and Bangladesh on June 30 and July 6 respectively.

In fact, the fans and experts were eagerly waiting for the launch of the new jersey of the Indian team. The new Indian kit is dominated by Orange colour rather than the original Blue colour.

News agency IANS has provided a picture of the proposed India jersey, although it is yet to be revealed officially. Out of the 10 nations competing at the World Cup in England and Wales, eight nations will have alternate jerseys, according to ICC regulations for this tournament.

“There has been a lot of talks and speculation and people have been calling it an away jersey. But it isn’t. It is an alternate jersey that the team will wear when they play England on June 30. As per the new rules, the hosts get to retain their jersey colour when they play an ICC event. Since India also have a blue jersey like England, there is a slight change in colour,” an IANS source was quoted as saying.

Apart from the player, the umpires will also have to change their jerseys in a few games. “Umpires will wear a pink shirt in all matches except those matches involving West Indies, Afghanistan in red or Bangladesh in red. In those matches, a black shirt will be worn. For the West Indies-Afghanistan match a pink shirt will be worn,” the ICC media guide said in a statement.
