  • England face a busy year with India Test series, T20 World Cup and Ashes tour 

England have revealed their new kits for a busy year of cricket including the T20 World Cup and this winter’s Ashes tour of Australia.

The New Balance Test strip has already been worn by Joe Root’s side in the LV Insurance Test series against New Zealand and the women’s side in their ongoing Test against India at Bristol.

The one-day and T20 kits will make their first appearance in this month’s white ball series against Sri Lanka, while the women’s team are playing India in a one-day series from June 27.

The one-day kit retains the same blue shade in which England unforgettably beat New Zealand to win the World Cup two years ago but features a more traditional collar with a black trim.

The T20 version mixes a darker shade of blue combined with a red pattern and will be worn in England’s bid to win the World Cup in India in October and November.

This kit will make its debut when England play Sri Lanka at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff on June 23 in the first of three fixtures in the series.

Three one-day matches against Sri Lanka follow before a trio of T20 games against Pakistan.

The five Test series with India forms the centrepiece of the summer as Root’s team try and gain a measure of revenge following their series defeat in India earlier this year.

Their Ashes tour of Australia gets underway on December 8.

Root said: ‘As always, New Balance have produced a brilliant set of shirts for all England teams to wear.

The new one-day kit retains a similar colour to the one worn by the 2019 World Cup winners

‘The 2019 World Cup win will live long in the memory of every England player and fan and it is great to retain the vibe from that kit and see it brought into the new ODI design.

‘The IT20 kit is a bold design which I think suits that format perfectly and hopefully this jersey can also go down in history as a victorious kit at the IT20 World Cup this year.’
