first_img India Today Web Desk BirminghamJune 30, 2019UPDATED: June 30, 2019 16:15 IST Team Indian sporting orange themed jersey against England. (AP Photo)Team India is sporting an Orange-Blue jersey for their World cup match against England on Sunday. Virat and his men are donning Orange jersey because ICC has suggested that if there is a clash in the colour of the jerseys, the away team will have to wear alternate colours.Four other teams in the tournament have had to wear different colours to avoid looking like their opposition.Accordingly, blue-shirted Afghanistan opted for red in three of their matches. South Africa, who usually wear green, chose gold for two matches while Sri Lanka swapped their blue for yellow for a couple of games.Bangladesh, who were wearing green jerseys, will don red ones in their July 5 match against Pakistan at the Lord’s.According to an ICC source, BCCI was given multiple colour options to choose from and the Indian Cricket board went with an Orange coloured jersey.Indian captain Virat Kohli was impressed with the new orange ‘away jersey’ but maintained that blue will always remain their colour.Not to forget, this is not the first time that any Indian National Team is wearing the Orange themed jersey, Indian women’s football team in a recent AFC Cup tournament sported full orange kit.As the Indian team took the field after England opted to bat first at Edgbaston, a wave of reactions were triggered across the sporting fraternity on TwitterMany fans were of the view that this colour combination does not suit the Indian Team whereas many said that they can’t wait to buy Team India’s new away jersey.advertisementLet me put it out in the Universe that I absolutely hate how the Indian jerseys have been designed. The Saffron is looking so garish and out of place. For thorough professionals like the Indian team, the new color could have been selectively used!#IndvsEng #OrangeIsTheNewBlue (@WCMD2020) June 30, 2019Indian team is looking like team from Indian oil petrol pumps Bhaiya tank full kar do normal diesel #INDvENG #OrangeIsTheNewBlue #nohardfeeling #justforfun #ICCWorldCup2019 Chawla (@deepak2409) June 30, 2019Blue is [email protected] @msdhoni @ImRo45 @harbhajan_singh @hardikpandya7 @klrahul11 @vikrantgupta73 @yuzi_chahal @imkuldeep18 @MdShami11 @Jaspritbumrah93 @JadhavKedar #OrangeIsTheNewBlue #sportstak Matta (@matta_hemant) June 30, 2019India is all Set to colour the ground with their #bhagwa jerseys today..that too in #England.
