Nike, the official apparel sponsor of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), announced today that team India will be sporting an all new orange jersey, their first ever away kit, for the first time when they take on England at Birmingham on Sunday, 30th June 2019.

“The ODI and Away Kit designs launched this year are inspired by the young new generation of India and the fearless spirit of the national teams.”
“Similar to the recently launched ODI Kit, the away kit is designed to enhance dynamic movements and modern requirement of the sport and the athletes. While the new engineered mesh and strategically placed sweat zones help enhanced breathability for the team on the field, new placket construction, the flex crest, garment cut angles and slash taping all add to making the new jersey lighter, more breathable and helps the athletes be agile on the field.”

The decision was taken keeping in mind the colour of the jerseys of the two sides taking each other on. England also sport a light blue jersey and hence, it would have been quite similar in appearance to that of India.
