Indian Cricket Team Away jersey: Team India all set to sport their ‘Orange’ jerseys in 3 matches of the ongoing Cricket World Cup in England

The ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup has finally gathered some spice two two back-to-back thrillers at the Cricketing fraternity’s disposal, after a few one-sided affairs initially.

Indian Cricket Team is the only team thus far, who has not yet commenced the World Cup campaign, and will square off against South Africa in their opening encounter on June 5 (Wednesday) at Southampton. If this is the biggest news related to the upcoming on-field action, there is yet another related to the ‘Away’ jerseys that 5 teams (including India) will be sporting during the World Cup in selected games, as these teams have more or less similar coloured kits.

While four teams have already unveiled their alternative kits, India are yet to reveal the same. As per the reports, the Indian players would be sporting their alternative jerseys on the match day itself.

However, what we know is that the players will be donning their ‘Orange’ jerseys in as many as 3 ‘Away’ matches, as per the recent reports.  It is the ICC itself which decides on the home and away games for the teams. England, being the Home team were provided with the luxury of choosing their own single kit.

The Indian ‘Orange Kit’

The India cricketers are likely to don orange jerseys instead of the usual blue in selected games of the ongoing World Cup, including the one against hosts England on June 30. The kit would be mostly dominated by the Orange colour, with a tinge of blue, the official declaration of which is yet to come.

“The BCCI marketing team is still working on the design and the jersey will be unveiled very soon,” a BCCI source told PTI.

9 in Blue, 3 in Orange

India will wear their alternative Orange dominated jerseys in 3 matches, as per the reports.

The India’s blue jersey clashes with England’s retro blue, and therefore Virat Kohli and Co. will become the ‘Men in Orange, on June 30 at Edgbaston.

Indian team might also sport their alternative against Afghanistan, who also have a more or less similar Blue shaded kit.

The concept of multiple jerseys has been inspired from club football in which players choose their colour on a home and away basis.

This is how the Indian Cricket Team Away jersey might look like (unofficial):
