New Look For Test Cricket Shirts Revealed. Twitter Is Not Happy & Slamming The Decision


New Look For Test Cricket Shirts Revealed. Twitter Is Not Happy & Slamming The Decision

The test cricket may be regarded as the best form of cricket by the cricketing experts but the truth is that its popularity is decreasing day by day.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) is taking the matter seriously and has come up with ICC World Test Championship that will start after the Cricket World Cup 2019. Top nine cricket teams will take part in this championship which will be played for two years and the final will be played in the year 2021.

The dresses of the cricketers have also been redesigned and the new look was revealed on Sunday in Arundel. Tim Paine, the captain of Australia A, entered the field dressed in white with number 7 and “Paine” printed in dark green on the back of the shirt.

He will be wearing this dress in the match against Sussex and then again in the five test-match Ashes series which will be starting on August 1 in Birmingham.

The numbers and initials on the dresses of cricketers are printed in the limited overs cricket but this is happening for the first time in the test cricket. It is being done in order to make it easy for the viewers to identify the players and also to increase the interest of fans in the test cricket. Just to inform, numbers and initials are not printed on the vest or woolen sweatshirts as of now.

There were some cricketers who supported the existing traditional plain white dresses and Twitter also doesn’t seem to be happy or satisfied with the new look. This is how social media users reacted:
