For the forthcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2022, which will be held in Australia between October and November, New Zealand has unveiled their new uniform. The New Zealand Cricket (NZC) announced the unveiling of the jersey on social media. It was accomplished with a photo session that included well-known Kiwi athletes including Trent Boult, Devon Conway, Daryl Mitchell, Martin Guptill, and others. BlackCapsNZ posted on Instagram, “Our shirt for the @t20worldcup in Australia is here #T20WorldCup #CricketNation #Cricket.”
The retro-styled shirt is a mashup of shirts seen on the side in the early 1990s. It is a fresh design that combines the grey of tradition with the black of the Kiwis. In the 1990s, grey was a colour that was frequently seen on New Zealand’s uniforms. The Southern Cross is utilised on the jersey as a reference to New Zealand and replaces the fern as the main graphic. Martin Guptill is scheduled to make a record-breaking seventh appearance in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 after New Zealand earlier on September 20 selected their roster. On Saturday, October 22, the Kiwis will face Australia at the SCG to kick off their T20 World Cup campaign. Thereafter, they will play Afghanistan, England, and two qualifiers at the MCG, SCG, and Gabba, respectively. Within the Super 12 phase, they are all a part of Group 1. In the 2021 tournament, New Zealand finished second after losing to Australia in the championship match.
