Durham Cricket launch new One Day Cup shirt for 2021 campaign

Durham Cricket have today launched its new One Day shirt, as we go retro ahead of the 2021 campaign.

The club are going back in time for 2021, as we reintroduce the shirt which was first worn during Durham’s 1993 Sunday League campaign.

The latest design of the shirt retains the style from the early 1990s, with Durham being printed across the front, as was a key element of club kit from the Sunday League and T20 competition.

Navy blue, burgundy and yellow also feature on the shirt, to illustrate the original colours of Durham Cricket Club.

Ebac who have been a long-serving sponsor of Durham Cricket will be the club’s One Day sponsor, which will be worn by the players throughout their campaign. While shirts available in the club store will resemble the 1993 shirt, with Durham Cricket printed across the front.

The shirt worn by the Durham squad for their 2021 Royal London Cup campaign is inspired by former players including Durham Cricket Chairman Sir Ian Botham.

Speaking on the launch of the new One Day Cup shirt, Sir Ian Botham said: “I remember the very first game, I remember we played Lancashire.

“To me these shirts, they are a bit retro, but I think they’re good and a bit more interesting, so I think the guys will love wearing them out in the one-day competition.

“I think it is a nice bit of nostalgia. We give up a lot of our history too easily, and that shirt is very much Durham for me.”

Durham will wear the shirt for the first time when they face Kent at Beckenham on Thursday 22 July.

Shirts can be purchased via the club website from Tuesday 25 May 2021. The club shop based at Emirates Riverside will open from Thursday 27 May for the Essex fixture.
