The first ODI between India and Australia is underway at Wankhede stadium, Mumbai, and there have been reports of people being asked to take off any black clothing item.

The step has allegedly been taken as colour black could potentially be a ‘symbol of protest’. 

We got in touch with one of the Twitter users to get some clarity on the matter and this was their response.

There are many others who have expressed their displeasure over the issue and the sudden ban on a particular colour.

Australia is visiting India for a 3-ODI series and the next two matches will be played in Rajkot and Bengaluru, respectively.

*Please note that this report is based solely on views expressed by people on social media and while we have personally contacted people, we are still waiting for an official announcement of the ban.
