    Australia T20 Kit

    Is there a reason why the Australian team wear black while playing the T20 format ?

    Probably to mourn the death of proper cricket.

    That's true. But on a serious note wondered why. Was it pressure from their sponsor KFC ?

    Don't think so, considering KFC's company colour is red.

    Not sure why they wear black in T20Is tbh. Perhaps it's just to differentiate the various formats of the sport, similar to why RSA wear pink in T20Is I suppose.

    Before the various versions of the black there were a couple of mainly grey ones

    South Africa only wear the pink one game a year, almost always at Wanderers. Their version of Jane McGrath day
