Virat Kohli’s men will be sporting the jersey with an orange-splashing on the shoulder region for their big-ticket World Cup 2019 match against England in Birmingham.Speculations had been rife about the colour of India’s away jersey ever since it was announced that World Cup teams would wear away jerseys in a few matches in the 10-team tournament in England. India’s next game against hosts England is considered to be an away game for them. Since both England and India don blue colour jerseys, India, according to International Cricket Council regulations, are going to wear their away kit.India have been wearing their traditional blue jersey for quite some time now and the new away kit has an orange patch on the shoulders and on the back.”The ODI and Away Kit designs launched this year are inspired by the young new generation of India and the fearless spirit of the national teams,” India’s official kit manufacturers, Nike said in a statement. “Similar to the recently launched ODI Kit, the away kit is designed to enhance dynamic movements and modern requirement of the sport and the athletes. While the new engineered mesh and strategically placed sweat zones help enhanced breathability for the team on the field, new placket construction, the flex crest, garment cut angles and slash taping all add to making the new jersey lighter, more breathable and helps the athletes be agile on the field,” Nike added.advertisement”The new total orange and blue colored Away Kits also moves away from a traditional silhouette to using new innovative cut lines alongside dynamic material combinations to emphasize a Multi-dimensional Slash Design and Movement approach.”India Today had confirmed earlier this week that India will be wearing a new Orange-dominated jersey for the game vs England. England, who also wear a blue-dominated jersey, have the right to retain their first-choice kits since they have been labelled as the home team for their big-ticket clash in Birmingham.”For televised ICC events all participating teams will be required to provide for two different coloured kits, except for the host country who has a preference in the choice of colour and may, if it chooses to do so, provide only one coloured kit to be worn in all matches throughout the event,” the International Cricket Council had said in a release.Meanwhile, it was reported earlier that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) chose the colour combination of India’s new away kit.Colour options were given to BCCI and they chose the colour combination that looked the best to them. The whole idea is to be different from blue as England also wears the same shade of blue as India, ANI quoted an ICC source as saying.While a political war broke over the orange colour in the India cricket jesey, India’s bowling coach Bharat Arun had played it down saying the team is focussed on playing crikcet in England.”To be very honest we are not aware what colours we are going to be wearing, we haven’t given any thought to that and all our focus is only on the match tomorrow. We are focusing on the game and not aware of the colour we are getting. We bleed blue and blue is going to be predominantly the colour that is it,” Arun had said.Also See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?
