The 2019 World Cup will be making some really impressive developments. Reportedly, five teams currently participating at the World Cup will have to wear ‘home’ and ‘away’ kits from May 30 onwards. The change comes up since India, along with Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and South Africa have the same shades on their jerseys that make it hard to distinguish them.

According to reports, England and Pakistan have been allowed to wear their usual jerseys over the duration of the tournament as their ‘home’ colours. The likes of Australia, New Zealand and West Indies are allowed to wear their usual jerseys since they have a unique colour. Since Team India hasn’t revealed their new jersey yet, and the fact that the country has seen a recent dominance of saffron in national politics, a number of people have begun speculating on the looks of the ‘away’ jersey.
Twitterati did a decent job of modifying the current blue jersey to look like the orange equivalent. While some went for a full-blown orange look, others got a little more creative, changing only the front or the sides to orange.

It looks like Virat Kohli and Co. will have to don the orange ‘away’ kits whenever they face England, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka since these teams have jerseys that have a similar colour to India’s current jersey.

Each team in the World Cup has been assigned a ‘home’ venue where they are allowed to wear their ‘home’ kit. The visiting team must choose their ‘away kit.’ This is something that is followed in several sports including football.Read More
