The Cricket World Cup has become a Watershed Event

Continuing the momentum from week 1, the action in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is getting hotter with every passing week.

ICC Women's Cricket World Cup 2021 will comprise a total of 31 matches, including the semi-finals and the final, beginning January 30 in New Zealand. This will happen on June 30 in the game against hosts England, who also sport a blue jersey just like India.

To bring alive the emotion that is, "Cricket for all Indians" and to support the players representing team India at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Star Sports sent the Indian team #BlessingsFromHomeGround. So, why will the team that has otherwise been sporting a blue kit for the World Cup turn up in a different colour for this game?

This is in accordance with ICC's new statement on jersey colours of home and away fixtures.

According to India Today's reports, Virat Kohli and Co. will be wearing an alternate jersey against India.

For the match scheduled on June 22, the Afghanistan team might have to switch their kits as both the countries wear blue jerseys. "In advance of the event, the teams will be notified which coloured kit will be worn in each match", the rule says. The jersey is orange in colour with a strip of blue around the collar.

Notably, the South African team had donned yellow jerseys instead of their green one for their second World Cup 2019 match against Bangladesh, since the latter also wore green kits on June 2.

With some scintillating player performances - Shikhar Dhawan's confident knock of 117 against Australia, Shakib Al Hasan's striking form with 121 against England, Aaron Finch's massive 153 against Sri Lanka and James Neesham's maiden ODI fifer against Afghanistan, to name a few, the showpiece event is attracting vast attention from fans. The "away" kit unveiled by Bangladesh is reportedly largely red in colour.
