Indian Cricket Team is most likely to wear Orange coloured jerseys for their game against England on June 30 in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. All participating teams in the World Cup, except the hosts country, were required to provide two different coloured kits. Here is the reason why.

The Indian Cricket team will most likely wear an orange coloured jersey for their World Cup 2019 match against the hosts, England on June 30. India, who are currently sporting a blue kit for the World Cup, will come up with a different attire for the game against England.

England, are also sporting a blue jersey and they have the right to retain their kits being a host. Speculations were widespread about the home-away jersey format at the quadrennial (for every 4 years) event ever since ICC came up with an announcement, saying they allowed teams to provide two different coloured kits.

Here is how the jersey might look as per the reports:

The news is almost confirmed that the men in blue will be wearing orange coloured jerseys against England. The splattering of blue is expected to be the colour of the collar of the latest jersey.
Here is what ICC in a press release said: "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. In advance of the event, the teams will be notified which coloured kit will be worn in each match". 

This will be the first time in India's cricket history that Team India will be wearing a jersey which has the dominant colour other than 'blue'. International Cricket Council (ICC) are testing the idea of a football-style 'home and away' jersey system for the first time in this year's edition of the Cricket World Cup.

Particularly, South Africa changed the colour of their shirts from green to yellow for their second match against Bangladesh who also wore green kits on June 2. Bangladesh also unveiled an away kit with a dominant red colour.

South Africa sported yellow jersey against Bangladesh on June 2nd.

Afghanistan most likely to wear an alternate jersey on Saturday:

Afghanistan will have have to change their kits for the match against India tomorrow, on Saturday as both the teams don the blue jersey. According to the ICC schedule of World Cup 2019, the upcoming match in Ageas Bowl, Southampton will be treated as a home game for India.

Afghanistan had already announced their away kit which has red dominating the splattering of blue on their shirts.

Other teams like the Aussies (who wear yellow), New Zealand (who wear black) and West Indies (who wear maroon) already have unique jerseys and hence are not subjected from having 'away' kits.
