Get ready to see Indian players in saffron jerseys at the ongoing ICC World Cup 2019 in England and Wales. With ICC's new rules coming into effect, India's jersey will change from blue to saffron for the game against England on June 30

 

London: When India face England at the ongoing ICC World Cup 2019, don’t be surprised if Virat Kohli and his boys are not seen in their blue jerseys. The colour of Indian kit for that game will change from blue to saffron.

You would be wondering why there is a sudden change in India’s jersey. But, according to the latest rules adopted by the International Cricket Council (ICC), the teams that sport a similar colour jersey to that of their opposition, will have to adopt a different away kit.

In Sunday’s (June 2) clash between South Africa and Bangladesh, the Proteas wore yellow jerseys as their green ones clashed with the Asian side.

So, when India take on hosts England on June 30, Kohli and his teammates will sport saffron jerseys since both teams’ original jerseys are blue in colour. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has already chosen the jersey, according to reports.

"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," a source explained to IANS news agency.

This is a new concept in cricket unlike football where teams have home and away kits. It is for the first time that ICC has decided to change the colour of jerseys of teams playing at its global tournament so that spectators can easily distinguish the teams.

Anyone using saffron color is saffronising ?

I changed the title .We don't have to follow agenda of cheap jouralism . 

 

Great color for our jersey.

Can't use white or green....so saffron is the only option.

 

 

 

You are right. Thanks. 

I think they want to cash in on the mood of the nation :hysterical:

Would have preferred some variation of white with blue stripes. Saffron also should be fine, its just one match. 

 

It is however strange. Its a 10 nation cup 4 wear blue, 3 wear green and my cell phone boosts of millions of colors.
