Cricket is one of the most followed sports on the planet. The endeavors of the International Cricket Council (ICC) to make cricket a connecting sport have assumed a significant part in boosting the prevalence of cricket worldwide. Prior, there was just one format in this game, where the groups used to wear the whites and play for five days to decide the winner.

Before that, the Test matches would go on until there is a winner. Along these lines, the crowd had sat tight for quite a long time just to know the winner of one match. Notwithstanding, the board at that point presented the one-day cricket format. Prior, ODI matches involved 120 overs, with each side getting 60 overs each. In any case, as time passed, that number was brought down to 50.

Likewise, the white ball replaced the red ball, and the groups wore beautiful jerseys in this format. With the development of planning, the current jerseys can be called of high-class quality. In any case, the retro units have their very own extraordinary spot, and once in a while, the groups bring back their retro searches for a specific series. Reports point that the Indian cricket team will wear retro jerseys versus Australia in the forthcoming ODI series.

Here are 3 examples when the countries used retro looks recently in cricket:

1. New Zealand's Teal Kit

New Zealand was booked to play restricted overs series against Australia exactly when the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world. The Kiwis brought back their blue-green unit for this visit.

Unfortunately, just a single ODI of the series could happen. From that point onward, New Zealand got back as Australia declared a lockdown in their nation.

2. Australia’s Golden Helmets

In a similar series, Cricket Australia chose to bring back the golden helmets in their kit for the first time in twenty years. The Australian batsmen wore brilliant head protectors until 2001.

Notwithstanding, from that point forward, the board had changed their pack and look. These brilliant golden helmets supplemented the imitation 1999 World Cup jersey of Australia which they wore against New Zealand.

3. England travel back in time in 2019

England impacted the world forever by winning their first ICC World Cup a year ago on home soil. They vanquished New Zealand in an extraordinary culmination face-off to hold onto the prize.

Their retro look had grabbed everybody's eye directly from Day One. England wore a jersey which was like their 1992 World Cup kit.
