So far in the first four games, India have donned the blue jersey but will turn out in a different attire for the game against England.
A total of 166 million viewers (urban and rural, television and out of home) watched the India-Australia one day global (ODI) held on 9 June, part of the ongoing 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, said the tournament's official broadcast partner Star India citing BARC data.
Orange has been a significant part of India's team jerseys in the past. It is also expected that there will be splattering of blue on the collar of the said new jersey. Speculations about what colour India would choose were rife since the time ICC had announced that all countries barring the hosts would have to sport two different coloured kits - the "home" and "away" kits.
Inspired by the use of home and away jerseys in football, ICC rules now prevent two teams from wearing similar jerseys during a televised match. The "away" kit unveiled by Bangladesh is reportedly largely red in colour. This soil travelled to the United Kingdom and was handed over by Star Sports anchor Jatin Sapru to India captain Virat Kohli prior to the India-Australia game.
