Watch: Australia Launches Indigenous Inspired Men's T20 World Cup Jersey

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 have released a special shirt for the occasion. The team will wear a shirt inspired by the indigenous community as it has artwork flowing around the shirt.

The Australian kit was designed by Aunt Fiona Clarke and Courtney Hagen, in collaboration with Asics. The two have previously collaborated on other Indigenous designs worn by Australia.

“Walkabouts Wicket was painted by Clarke, a Kirrae Whurrong woman who is the great-great-granddaughter of James ‘Mosquito’ Couzens, who played in the Aboriginal XI in a historic match at the MCG in 1866, and also toured England in 1868, Australia’s first sports team to play abroad,” according to an article on cricket.com.au.

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

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