(Press release) ROSEAU, Dominica – International cricket made a spectacular return to Dominica on Saturday, with home team West Indies ready to entertain their fans in the first T20 International (T20I) against Bangladesh at the picturesque Windsor Park.
As part of the celebrations marking the first international cricket at the refurbished stadium following the severe damage inflicted by Hurricane Maria in 2017, West Indies are wearing their new 2022-2023 T20I team shirt for the first time. West Indies fans in Dominica have been building up to the return of international cricket, revelling in the return of the game to the Nature Isle with a carnival-like in the build-up to the match.
The new shirt, designed by West Indies official team apparel partner Castore, features a modern graphic design and the iconic maroon and gold team colours. It will be worn by the West Indies Men’s team for all the T20I matches building up to and during the ICC T20I World Cup. This includes the current T20I Series against Bangladesh, followed by the home T20I Series against India and New Zealand in July and August. The new shirt design will also feature for the West Indies Women’s forthcoming T20Is and for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup scheduled for South Africa in 2023.
The new shirt will go sale on the Castore website – https://castore.com/collections/west-indies – ahead of the first T20I between West Indies and India in Trinidad on 22 July as well as at selected retailers including FanZone in Trinidad. Castore’s partnership with Cricket West Indies ensures that West Indies teams have the most advanced fabrics to allow for high performance, extreme athletic movement and rapid wicking of moisture particularly in hot conditions.
Captain Nicholas Pooran wore the new T20I shirt for the first time in Friday’s captain’s media call ahead of the T20I Series between West Indies and Bangladesh.
