As all teams have to choose a color for their jersey. Indian administration needs to follow the same. India as a nation doesn’t have any specific national color like Pakistan and Australia so they went with tricolor. The first option was Saffron but due to political reasons, it was rejected. The second one was White but they could not use it. Green was the third option but it was already taken by Pakistan. Finally, after various discussions between Government Officials, Blue was Finalized as the jersey color of India. Blue represents sky, ocean, and vastness and it is also the color of Ashoka Chakra with 24 spokes. It also symbolizes the passion and vastness to achieve in the game.

Since then many types of the jersey were introduced according to tournament sponsors but one thing remained constant was blue.

”Bleeding blue ” is very famous among fans as it represents their passion towards Indian Cricket team. Orange is now secondary color.
