India to wear orange kit on 30th June against England.

The Indian cricket team might be seen in different colours for a couple of matches in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

However, Virat Kohli and Co. are yet to see their new jerseys. ICC who is inspired by Football home and away jersey concept has come up with a rule that no two teams can wear the same coloured jersey for the same match.

The ICC Cricket World Cup is on, and it looks like Google has made a decision to go all in on cashing on the world cup vibe in India. The Proteas were sporting yellow coloured jersey during the clash as Bangladesh also green kits which are similar to their jersey colour.

As England and India wear a light blue jersey, India will need to change their jersey colour as England are the hosts of the tournament.

The ICC World Cup 2019 has been quite different from all its past editions, espicially with respect to the worldwide cricket board's new rule of home and away kit. The 50-over tournament will be the game's fourth event to be fully or jointly hosted in New Zealand after two men's World Cups in 1992 and 2015, and women's event in 2000. If reports are to be believed, the men in blue will go orange for their "away" jersey against hosts England with a strip of blue around the collar.

Although India and Afghanistan both have a blue coloured jerseys, it will be Afghanistan who would be changing their kits on Saturday since the match is treated as a home match for India, according to ICC schedule of World Cup 2019.

Notably, the South African team had donned yellow jerseys instead of their green one for their second World Cup 2019 match against Bangladesh, since the latter also wore green kits on June 2.

India will reveal their away kit in the coming weeks, with the team themselves having seen the kit for the first time just last week, as per a manufacturing executive.
