The Indian team will debut its new orange and blue “away” jersey for the World Cup match against England at Edgbaston on Sunday.

Nike India, the official apparel sponsor of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), released pictures of the new kit on Friday. For India's penultimate league game on Sunday, the team will make a departure from their normal contemporary blue kit so that it won't clash with England's sky blue colour.

“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,” Nike India stated in a press release.
