The Congress and Samajwadi Party on Wednesday raised objections over the orange jerseys that will likely be sported by the Indian cricket team in their upcoming match against England in the ongoing International Cricket Council (ICC) men's cricket World Cup. While launching this jersey, Nike said that Indian team's Awe Kit is inspired by the spirit of not accepting defeat of the new generation.

"Similar to the recently launched ODI Kit, the away kit is created to enhance dynamic movements and modern requirement of the sport and the athletes". All host teams have been under similar pressure in the history of the cup.

The new jerseys have more orange in them along with blue - the reverse of the regular kit, which is primarily blue with some orange. On the contrary, Team England have been at the receiving end of sharp criticism ever since they fell off from the bright start and began losing matches.

Earlier, BCCI shared India's new jersey on Twitter and wrote, "Presenting #TeamIndia's Away Jersey What do you make of this one guys?"

Nearer home, the orange or saffron in the colours led to a controversy with political parties getting into the act and blaming the ruling BJP for choice of colours.

Edgbaston, where they face India on Sunday, has been the best in terms of assisting spinners; an obvious plus for India.

"The more true to ourselves we can be, you can nearly go the complete opposite to what we've done to be really honest with you". So we have not given any thought to that. Spot TV advertising slots for the June 16 match cost up to 2.5 million rupees ($36,000), versus a package for all games ranging between 1 million and 1.5 million rupees, media buyers say.

Sri Lanka's yellow-and-blue kit has the same colour scheme in the away jersey, but the proportion of yellow increases significantly. "We might have different religions, but cricket is the biggest one", said Shashi Kumar, a 34-year-old in the southern technology hub of Bengaluru, who said the game unites the country and brings people together.

When questioned did the colour of the jersey mattered, he replied, "We bleed blue, right".
