Team India has played four matches in world cup 2019 so far and won 3 matches out of them. They are at 4th positions in the points table with 7 points. India will play against Afghanistan in their next game of world cup 2019 on June 22.
According to reports, India will wear Orange jersey against England match. Because of ICC rule teams need to wear different jersey for home and away games. So India may wear Orange Jersey.
According to the ICC rulebook: ”For televised ICC events all participating teams will be required to provide for two different colored kits, except for the host country who has preference in the choice of color and may, if it chooses to do so, provide only one colored kit to be worn in all matches throughout the event. In advance of the event, the teams will be notified which colored kit will be worn in each match.”
Virat Kohli and Co. though, haven’t yet seen the new jersey.
“Till last week, the Indian players had not seen their new jerseys,” an executive close to the development was quoted by TOI.
“There is still confusion among various stakeholders, whether the team would actually need to don new colors. For instance, the Pakistan team has been exempted from changing their familiar green although there are teams such as Bangladesh, which too, wear green,” he added.
Man of ICC tournaments Shikhar Dhawan ruled out of world cup 2019. Rishabh pant replaced him in the team. Also, Bhuvneshwar Kumar injured during India versus Pakistan Game. He bowled only 2.4 overs. He may be not available for the next few games. Mohammed Shami is the right replacement for him. Earlier this year, Mohammed Shami won the player of the series award in the ODIs in New Zealand against New Zeland.
