Why Was The Jersey Banned?

The ICC T20 World Cup might be starting on June 2nd, but the warm-up matches are already underway, adding to the pre-tournament excitement. However, for one team, this excitement turned into a bit of a buzzkill when the ICC banned their jersey.

The team in question is Uganda. The jersey they had launched for the World Cup was banned by the ICC. The reason for the ban was that the jersey had bird feathers on the sleeves, which were obstructing the sponsor logos.

New Jersey With 20% Changes

The Ugandan jersey was selected after a competition organized by the country’s cricket association. The competition culminated in the winning design by Eliza Mangeni, inspired by the country’s national bird, the ‘gray crowned’ crane.

The ICC, while banning the jersey, asked for the removal of the feather design on the sleeves and for the sponsor logos to be made more prominent. They suggested converting the feather design into a pattern on the sleeves.
