India to wear orange jersey?

Amid row concerning color of Indian cricket team’s new jersey, India bowling coach Bharat Arun said that their focus is not on the color.

“To be very honest we are not aware of what colors we are going to be wearing, we haven’t given any thought to that and all our focus is only on the match tomorrow. We are focusing on the game and not aware of the color we are getting. We bleed blue and blue is going to be predominantly the color that is it,” Arun said during a pre-match press conference here on Wednesday.

India is likely to wear an orange jersey rather than their traditional blue color jersey during their clash against England in the ongoing World Cup on June 30.

However, it did not go well with the opposition parties, who have accused the government saying that the orange jersey for the team is the government’s attempt to saffronize everything.

Earlier, an ICC source told ANI that color options were given to BCCI and they chose the color combination that looked the best to them. Source also said that the design (orange) is taken from India’s old T20 jersey which had orange in it.
