The Australian cricket board unveiled the brand new T20 World Cup kits. Fans and enthusiasts are gearing up for a new season of cricket matches. The International Cricket Council has confirmed the official date for the mega cricket tournament.
In preparation for the next ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 in October/November, the Australian cricket team has unveiled indigenous-themed uniforms. Australia will enter this year’s tournament as the defending champions after beating New Zealand in the T20 global finals last year.
The team led by Aaron Finch will try to defend the T20 World Cup in their home country later this year. They will wear a playing top with a green-to-gold gradient on the trunk and black sleeves.
On the long-sleeved version, the gold and green design will be on the tops of the sleeves. They will wear black pants and a hat with the colours of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags on the brim.
The shirt’s trunk will be a gold and green gradient, and the sleeves will be black. Australia is also liable for the men’s competition as a first-time host nation.
Aunty Fiona Clarke and Courtney Hagen reportedly created the kit. Clarke is the great-great-granddaughter of James Couzens, a player for the Aboriginal XI that competed in the historic match at the MCG in 1866 and toured England the following year.
