Team India is likely to use the orange jersey instead of their original blue for the ongoing World Cup tournament against Afghanistan on Saturday. 

The India’s blue jersey clashes with Afghanistan’s blue; therefore, Virat Kohli and his team will be seen in orange on June 22. 

The jersey, which will be predominantly orange with a tinge of blue, will be unveiled during the course of the tournament.

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

The need for an alternative jersey arose after the International Cricket Council issued a guideline before the start of the Word Cup, requiring teams to have two different uniforms for all its televised tournaments except hosts England.

“For televised ICC events all participating teams will be required to provide for two different-colour 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. In advance of the event the teams will be notified which coloured kit will be worn in each match,” the ICC had said in a release.
