It is the first time that Test cricket saw names and numbers behind the jersey. It happened for the first time in Ashes 2019 first Test. From now on, every team will sport the new look in their upcoming Test matches. Against West Indies, even India will be trying out the new jersey in their two-match Test series.
Some loved the new look and many wanted the conventional Test match jersey back again. They were not impressed with the name and number on the back of it.
Coming to the Indian spinner R Ashwin, he seems to have liked it but has a different question to raise. He tweeted about the sweaters used by the players in a Test match and whether they should have the name and number or not?
On Friday, Ashwin took to Twitter and questioned that should the sweaters also have numbers on them?
