Take a look at West Indies’ fantastic new International kits

The West Indies players will be donning fantastic new training and playing kits during the three-Test behind-closed-doors tour of England.

The new training gears, part of Cricket West Indies’(CWI) new three-year partnership with Castore, were announced during the West Indies training camp at Emirates Old Trafford. The training kits feature lightweight, performance-enhancing fabrics and an ultra-modern dark blue, maroon, and pink design that the players love.

The new Test “whites” will be unveiled ahead of the upcoming three-Test series against England when the Caribbean men will be defending the Wisden Trophy at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton (July 8-12) and then at Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester (July 16-20 and July 24-28).

Castore, the fast-growing premium performance brand will make the team’s official kits for Test, T20 Internationals (T20I), and One-Day International (ODI) games. They will cover the men’s, women’s, and age group teams from Under-15 level upwards. Castore is a Liverpool-based company and this is their first task with cricket.

CWI Commercial Director, Dominic Warne said:

“We know the players are excited to get their hands on the new performance training range from Castore, especially during this unique training camp. Castore has listened to the needs of our players and coaching staff to deliver a range of superb kit and we’re looking forward to revealing a special Test kit ahead of this historic Series.”

Phil Beahon, co-founder of Castore, said:

“We are delighted and honoured to have been chosen by Cricket West Indies as the West Indies Official Kit Partner. Castore creates world-leading sportswear garments designed to enhance the performance of elite athletes and we are incredibly excited about the opportunity to contribute to the next chapter of history for one of the most successful international teams in cricket.”

Details of the Test kit and purchase details will be released by CWI and Castore in the next three weeks ahead of the opening Test fixture.

The three-match series was originally due to begin in June but will now start on July 8 instead because of the delay caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
