Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has decided to change the design of the Tigers’ World Cup jersey after the design of the two jerseys unveiled on Monday was criticized by fans and media.
Nizamuddin Chowdhury, chief executive officer of BCB confirmed the matter to the newsmen on Tuesday morning.
“There is no red on the home jersey. The new design will have red in it,” he said adding, “Initially the design had red in it. The team's name, Bangladesh, was in red. But ICC did not approve of it. There is probably a guideline of ICC that the team names will have to be in white color. Now we will have to put the red color somewhere else in the jersey.”
The CEO of BCB also informed that the jerseys that have already been put on sale in the market will be replaced by the new ones.
The design for the away jersey is completely red, with a bit of green on the arms and in front. However, the home jersey is completely green, with red nowhere to be seen.
This home jersey was the one which the players wore during the official photo session of the team on Monday. The all-green jersey created a lot of criticism among the fans on social media, with some commenting it to Pakistan jerseys.
Following the uproar, BCB president Nazmul Hassan told a TV channel on Monday that they would change the design of the home jersey.
