CWI unveils new T20 jersey as World Cup countdown starts
Cricket West Indies (CWI) and the West Indies team on Friday revealed the new T20 International (T20I) team playing shirt as they prepare to face New Zealand in a three-match T20I series, starting on November 27 in Auckland.
The T20I shirt features an eye-catching, contemporary maroon and yellow geometric pattern on the shirt front, with contrast maroon sleeves.
The bold, vibrant colours and design are a trademark of the #MenInMaroon, one of the most successful, exciting and skillful teams in world cricket. The playing shirts are made with a premium, lightweight performance stretch fabric and are available in both short sleeve and long sleeve versions.
The new playing jersey has already sparked great interest among fans who first saw it on West Indies’ social media channels and it completes the new range of West Indies playing and training kits designed by official team kit supplier, Castore, available to buy immediately through the Castore website – www.castore.com/collections/west-indies.
The T20I shirt will be worn for all T20I matches in the build-up to the ICC T20 World Cup and in all West Indies Women’s T20I matches.
