India to sport orange ‘away’ jersey against England

India to sport orange ‘away’ jersey against England

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. The famous India Blue comes with a spattering of orange, which is expected to be reversed in the game against England, which also sports a shade of blue.

Since England is hosting the 2019 World Cup, it has the right to wear the blue jersey and retain its kits throughout the World Cup.

Team India's new jersey has caused quite an excitement among the fans.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) before the start of the tournament stated that they have asked all the participating countries to provide for two different coloured kits except for organiser England. It is also expected that there will be splattering of blue on the collar of the said new jersey. "The teams will be notified which colour kit they will have to wear for each match in advance".

Neil Gaiman has flawless comeback for Christians wanting "Good Omens" canceled
More than 20,000 concerned Christians have signed a petition demanding Netflix cancel the "satanic" series " Good Omens ". Only it was directed towards Netflix and not towards the streaming platform that made it - Amazon Prime .

The Times of India quoted that a senior industry executive revealed, "Till last week, the Indian players had not seen their new jerseys".

In the ongoing 10-nation tournament, so far, South Africa who generally wear green with a splash of yellow, wore the reverse (dominantly yellow with patches of green) against Bangladesh, whereas Afghanistan sported a jersey with more areas of red added to their usual blue jerseys. Although India is yet to unveil its "away" kit, that hasn't stopped fans from taking to social media with photoshopped images of the possible jerseys.

There are still speculations of whether the team will have to don their new kit against Afghanistan on Saturday, June 22.

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.
