New Delhi, Jun 2 (IANS): | Publish Date: 6/3/2019 12:00:00 AM IST

The fans and the media have been predicting for a while how the alternate jersey that Virat Kohli and his boys are expected to wear in the World Cup in England and Wales will look like.

IANS has been given access to the look of the jersey and it’s rear side is orange in colour as compared to the original blue.

Speaking to IANS, a source in the know of developments said that it is not exactly an away jersey, as many people are putting it, but an alternate jersey as per the new playing rules of the International Cricket Council (ICC).

“There has been a lot of talks and speculation and people have been calling it an away jersey. But it isn’t. It is an alternate jersey that the team will wear when they play England on June 30. As per the new rules, the hosts get to retain their jersey colour when they play an ICC event. Since India also have a blue jersey like England, there is a slight change in colour,” the source explained.

While the tournament has already got underway with favourites England winning their first game against South Africa and defending champions Australia thrashing Afghanistan in their opening fixture, India will start their campaign against South Africa in Southampton on Wednesday.
