Watch: Australia Launch Indigenous Inspired Jersey For Men’s T20 World Cup | Cricket News

Australia’s kit for the Men’s ICC T20 World Cup

The Australian men’s cricket team will defend its T20 World Cup title at home from next month and they have launched a special jersey for the occasion. The team will sport a jersey that is inspired from the indigenous community as it will have artwork that flows around the shirt.

Australia’s kit has been designed by Aunty Fiona Clarke and Courtney Hagen, in collaboration with Asics. The two have previously worked together on other Indigenous designs worn by Australia.

“Walkabouts Wicket was painted by Clarke, a Kirrae Whurrong woman who is the great great grand-daughter of James ‘Mosquito’ Couzens, who played in the Aboriginal XI in a landmark match at the MCG in 1866, and also toured England in 1868, the first sporting team from Australia to play abroad,”  stated a article.

Cricket Australia posted a video on its Twitter handle with this caption, “Our men’s national team will don a new uniform designed by Kirrae Whurrong woman Aunty Fiona Clarke, in collaboration with Butchulla and Gubbi Gubbi woman Courtney Hagan, when they defend their @T20WorldCup title on home soil next month.”

The Aussies won their maiden T20 World Cup title in Dubai last year after beating New Zealand in the final.
