Classic World Cup Kits – 2007
A look back at the tournament where designers began to experiment with collars, plackets and fabrics
In 2007, the kit designs looked sleeker- there were no longer any loud or busy prints.
Australia's kit was a more golden hue this time and if Matthew Hayden and Adam Gilchrist's outstanding performance was anything to go by, it certainly worked like a charm. Mandarin collars and a zip placket were the new features.
Bangladesh played around with dark and light green, and the red collar gave the kit a nice pop of colour.
On its World Cup debut, Bermuda opted for a red, white and pre-dominantly blue kit.
The maple leaf, the national symbol of Canada, graced the front of the jersey.
England's kit was adventurous this time, with asymmetrical design details. One color had red trim while the other had white.
India's pale blue kit had a striking yellow font and a tri-colour weaved at the side.
Ireland opted for a green kit with black as the secondary color.
Kenya didn't stray too much from it's 2003 Cricket World Cup kit, but the font was more larger this time.
The Netherlands kept its kit simple, with bright orange the primary colour.
New Zealand went with an all-black kit, but the silver fern motif was enlarged and displayed on the front of the jersey.
Pakistan used dark greens, bright greens and yellow-greens in its kit.
Scotland's blue-grey kit contained it national flag as a print near the sleeve.
South Africa's design was more mellow this time, a green kit with yellow panel details. A small lotus print was its central design.
Sri Lanka's kit was one of the most innovative. Aside from a zip placket, the jersey incorporated mesh detailing near the sleeve.
It was Brian Lara's swansong, and West Indies' maroon kit with multicoloured panels made it visually memorable.
Zimbabwe's kit was largely all-red with green making a cameo appearance at the sleeves.
