England’s ‘absolutely disgusting’ Cricket World Cup kit compared to bin bags… but some fans love the retro design
ENGLAND have released their new kit for the cricket World Cup… but some fans appear a little underwhelmed.
Trevor Bayliss' team will kick-start their campaign against South Africa later this month wearing a "absolutely disgusting" light blue outfit – in a throwback to their 1992 shirt.
The words 'England' are plastered across the front and the shirt also features a dark blue collar.
There is also a variety shades of blue leading up to the shoulders.
England cricket's official Twitter account unveiled the launch with Eoin Morgan, Adil Rashid and Jonny Bairstow modelling.
It appeared to get the thumbs up from bowler Stuart Broad who commented: "A beautiful kit to lift the World Cup in."
But some England fans failed to share the same sentiment.
One compared it to a group of bin bags with the caption "Close Enough" next to the picture.
Another said: "Holy s*** that is truly awful."
A third brutally added: "Honestly, absolutely disgusting."
Paul Brookes sarcastically wrote: "It's a great idea to have England in big letters across the chest, as it does get confusing when there are as many as two teams on the pitch at once."
But it did get a good reception from other fans with one writing: "A little bit retro… looks really nice."
Another added: "I swear nobody has ever liked a kit when it comes out. This is awesome, let it happen."
England's first World Cup game is against South Africa on May 30 at The Oval.
All ten teams will play each other in a round robin format with the top four qualifying for the semi-finals.
