Also, an ICC source has told ANI that the decision was made by BCCI to distinguish Indian players from their opponents on June 30.

Meanwhile, ahead of India's win against West Indies, bowling coach Bharat Arun quipped, "We are not even aware of what color we are going to be wearing, so we have not given any thought to that. All our focus is on the match tomorrow."

Spokesperson for Congress Pawan Khera said, "The color of the jersey worn by players is decided by the BCCI and not the government. This is a needless controversy."
