Cricket Scotland launch WT20 kit
Cricket Scotland today launched their new kit for the 2016 ICC World T20 in India.
Several members of the squad, Preston Mommsen, Michael Leask, Ali Evans Safyaan Sharif and Matthew Cross were joined by renowned kilt designer Siobhan Mackenzie at the Shore, Edinburgh to model the new gear.
The exclusive Cricket Scotland tartan that can be seen on the shirts, was created by Pitlochry-based House of Edgar, is a striking combination of navy, azure and white.
Scotland all-rounder Michael Leask said, “It’s a great top and looks superb with the kilts. The shirts are really light, which will be handy when we get to India. I like the fact that it has a hidden thistle on it."
We’ve been preparing hard and can’t wait to get out there and represent our country on the world stage.”
Kilt designer Siobhan Mackenzie said, “The kilts that the guys are wearing today are variations on the Mackenzie tartan used in different ways, along with different textures, tweeds and velvets to give them a real fresh and modern look.
Also to have the Cricket Scotland tartan on the shirt makes it look distinctive and really stand out – I’m a big fan.”
The Scotland squad leave on Sunday (21st Feb) to prepare for ICC World Twenty20 India 2016 with a series of warm-up games in India, ahead of their group-stage matches which will be played at the iconic Vidarbha stadium in Nagpur.
