In the last few years, team England has changed their jerseys more often than any other team in the world.
Earlier this month, the long-term partnership between ECB and Castore was launched with the high-performance training range for all of England’s national team, including men, women, and pathways. Following on from the training kits, the test kit was released today.
The ECB made the announcement on their official Twitter handle while revealing the new kit for the upcoming tournaments. Again three lions at the heart with the sponsor’s name being written at the front right.
Lightweight, high-stretch, and moisture-wicking material has been used for the new kit. The upper kit is a classic cable knit design in the main body, with raglan cut sleeves for the ease of players. It also has soft knitted ribbed cuffs and hems with an embroidered ECB crest.
The kit has a little different design as compared to the previous kit, as this one has blue linings on the shoulders with the sponsor name’s being written in purple. This kit is designed to enhance performance and ease of movement with fabrics that Castore have used across the highest level of their sportswear.
Some of the big names of the England cricket, including Jofra Archer, helped in the making process so the final result matches the convenience
This kit lays out the aims of Castore and ECB’s joint initiative clearly, by providing the players and supporters with a kit that is rooted in sportswear technology and innovation.
Two of England’s most high-profile cricketers Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow were seen wearing the new kit.
England Cricket Team Test Schedule 2022:
The England cricket team’s upcoming test fixtures include a series against New Zealand in June followed by a 3-match test series against South Africa in July.
England team apart from wearing a new kit for the upcoming matches will also see a major change in leadership as well, as the ECB just appointed Rob Key as the head coach of England cricket.
Joe Root, who was captaining the test team of England for the last five years had stepped down from the captainship early on 15th April 2022, this means Key will have to appoint a new captain before the series as well.
Root was appointed as the successor of Alastair Cook in 2017 and holds the record for the most number of matches (64), and wins (27) as Test captain for England.
The hero of the 2019 World Cup victory Ben Stokes is the early favorite to succeed him as captain.
