England players to wear new kit for T20I matches
Eoin Morgan-led England cricket team will step out in the new jersey for the first time during their three-match T20I series against Pakistan, starting at Emirates Old Trafford on Friday.
The captain has urged the fans to cheer for them from their own homes.
The design of the jersey was chosen following feedback from players and is a clear, yet concise, kit. The shirt features two shades of red with a deeper shade on the raglan sleeves, as well as a navy collar and white trim to match the printed and embroidered logos.
Interestingly, the same pattern kit will also be used by the women’s team when they meet West Indies for the five T-20 internationals next month.
The said kit was first worn earlier this year by the women players in the T20 World Cup in Australia.
Meanwhile, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has also unveiled new cricket jersey for the upcoming T20I series against England. T20I captain Babar Azam was seen wearing the jersey with posing with the series trophy. The new jersey has a new color combination in comparison to their previous kit.
The t-shirt contains the parrot green color in most of its parts as its sleeves and trousers are traditional dark green.
Pakistan and England will play a three-match T20 series which is all set to kick-start from August 28 at Old Trafford. Before that, England won the three-match Test series by 1-0.
