Former Jammu and Kashmir chief ministers Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah have both slammed Team India for their lackluster performance against England in the Sunday match. Mehbooba Mufti pinned the blame on the Indian teams new orange jersey for their loss against England and said on Twitter, This is Team Indias first loss in the tournament after 6 games. The Indian team had chosen a different jersey for the World Cup match against England as per the International Cricket Councils home and away rule. The rule states that if both teams have similar coloured jerseys during a televised game, the visiting team is required to wear a different coloured jersey. Team India choosing orange had stirred up a political row. The Opposition opposed the BCCI (Board for Control of Cricket in India) choosing the orange as the ruling-BJP has as a saffron flag.
