...and Australia lifted their second ICC Cricket World Cup!

Australia to bring back World Cup 1999 kit for 2019-20 summer

Australia news

Results of an online vote are in: Australia's iconic kit from the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 1999 will make a reappearance during the next season.

Cricket Australia had invited fans to choose their all-time favourite kit, with the most popular response inspiring the team's one-day international kit for the 2019-20 summer. With its distinctive pattern of green 'shooting stars' on yellow, the kit from when the team lifted the World Cup trophy in England in 1999 was the overwhelming popular choice. 

The poll started with seven classic Australian kits from the 20th century and one from the early 2000s, four of which were eliminated after the first round of votes. Kits from the 1992 and 1999 World Cups, the lightning bolts from 1992-94 and the blue stripes from 1999-2001 progressed to the next stage. 

The final tussle was between the 'lightning bolts' and the World Cup 1999 kit, and the latter was chosen by 67 per cent of voters. 

Australia lifted the World Cup that year after an eight-wicket triumph against Pakistan in the final of the tournament with Steve Waugh at the helm. It marked the beginning of an era of dominance from the team, as they went on to claim three ODI World Cups in a row and create countless records. 

It comes as little surprise that the kit holds a dear place in fans' hearts. Take a look at the most iconic Australian moments in that jersey.
