Before the start of the World Cup, ICC introduced a new rule asking the teams to sport home and away jerseys in the tournament.
The ICC rule reads: “For televised ICC events all participating teams will be required to provide for two different coloured kits, except for the host country who has 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.”
As the Indian team and England team has the blue colour jersey, the Indian team has to wear their away jersey as per ICC instructions.
This match is going to be interesting.
New jersey and highest score India.
I guess it could cross 400 if toss wins
