Your perception might be coloured by the side you support. But the teams themselves can no longer afford to take colours lightly. A reason for India’s loss to Bangladesh? Their blue uniforms perhaps? According to Indiatimes’ Astrocricket “Blue is not the right colour for India, blue is a cool colour, but not suitable for aggressive and competitive sports like cricket, it also promotes flights of fancy". Leaders of countries that led their countries to battle used red in banners, flags and uniforms, like Adolf Hitler used Swastika on a patch of white, black and red. Red Indians and Africans used red to frighten their enemies while Aztecs of South Mexico used irritating colours to torture their enemies. So, the West Indies team that wear this colour are traditionally known to be an aggressive team and they are fighters who don’t give up.
“The yellow colour of Australian team activates joy, gives intuitional insight of opponents' weakness and is a colour of destructive decimation. Looking at the colour yellow for more than a minute can cause physiological disturbances to opponents, whereas it helps Australia to activate the motor nerves and generates energy for the muscles. It also drives away exhaustion and arthritis.”
It further advices that since India cannot change their team colours they should at least wear orange during practice as it has an antispasmodic effect on muscle cramps.
But what is going to be an intriguing encounter next is India’s clash against Sri Lanka on March 23 as it turns out that Sri Lanka too wear the wrong colour – a blue which gives the side aggression and a never-say-die attitude, but lacks consistency.
