Men in blue will go orange for the clash against England on 30th June
Cricket fans, who have been acutely trusting that India will begin its World Cup stay, will get the chance to see Virat Kohli and his men turn out on the field in a shading other than blue this time around, with the new ICC guidelines commanding an away shirt during the competition to guarantee there is no visual conflict for the onlookers.
While other teams who wear regular hues like Blue and Green have just uncovered their away shirts, India has kept up anticipation over it.
Indian cricket fans are used to seeing Team India players in their distinct blue jerseys but there will be an exception in the ICC World Cup this year. On June 30, when India face hosts England at Edgbaston in Birmingham, the Indian cricketers will sport an orange jersey.
News agency IANS provided a picture of the proposed India jersey, although it was yet to be revealed officially.
According to ICC regulations, out of the 10 nations competing at the World Cup in England and Wales, eight nations will have alternate jerseys, for this tournament.
