This is the new Australia CWC 2019 shirt, the uniform to be worn by the Australian cricket team at this summer’s World Cup in England. The Aussies are the reigning world champions and appear to be peaking at the right time in the 50 over format after impressive away series wins against India and Pakistan. They came from 2-0 down to beat Ravi Shastri’s men 3-2 in India, and followed it up with a stunning 5-0 whitewash of Pakistan in the UAE.
Made by Asics, the new Australia CWC kit was officially unveiled on April 9, 2019. The jersey’s predominantly yellow, with green featuring on the collar, shoulders and sides.
Australia have warm up games against England and Sri Lanka in Southampton before officially beginning the defence of their title against Afghanistan at Bristol on June 1.

Australia have reached the finals in five of the last six World Cups. The sole “failure” if one could call it that, came in the World Cup on the subcontinent in 2011, when they were knocked out by eventual winners India in the last eight. No other country has won more World Cups than the Aussies’ five. They are expected to officially announce their squad later this month.
