It has been long enough since ODI and T20 cricket inducted colorful kits with player names and Numbers on the T-Shirts. However, Test Cricket was still kept to the traditional ways. There is a fresh announcement as ECB has made a move to change that.
England Cricket has just announced that the Players will have their names and numbers on their T-Shirts during the “Ashes” test matches against England. England Cricket also twitted pictures of the key players wearing these fancy new upgraded kits.
There has not been any confirmation for the Australian side if they would also adapt to this change from ECB. This change was already speculated before the ICC World Cup and now it’s confirmed.
Merchandise Sales and Marketing creeping into the Test Cricket
Test cricket has its own blend and it also has many fans who are used to this traditional blend of cricket. There is a divide upon this move from England cricket as some of the people have welcomed the change while others said it should stay the way it is in Test Cricket. Perhaps the merchandise with Player names is more appealing and would sale more. and looks like its possible that we would see some colors and further personalization of the player kits.
