Just one week away to start the ICC cricket world cup 2019. In the opening encounter of world cup 2019, host England will face South Africa on May 30. Now all the teams are playing world cup Warm Up matches. All ten teams have played two warm-up games. Team India will face New Zealand tomorrow in the third warm up match. India may wear another Color jersey for a few matches of World cup.
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 coloured kit to be worn in all matches throughout the event. In advance of the event, the teams will be notified which coloured kit will be worn in each match.”
So India need to submit another colour jersey than Blue. India is wearing Blue color Jersey in International cricket.
South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and England have already two Jersey for the world cup. But Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan and West Indies need to submit another color Jersey to ICC before the World 2019.
India will Start their world cup campaign from June 5 against South Africa. Virat Kohli is going to lead team India first time in the CWC. In the last two world cup, MS Dhoni led the team. In MS captaincy India won the world cup second time in 2011. In the 2019 world cup, India Reached in the Finals but lost against Australia. So in this World Cup, MS ‘Dhoni’s experience will play an important Role. MS Dhoni may retire after the World Cup 2019. He already retired from test cricket and only playing ODI and t20 cricket.
