Black and red has been proven scientifically to be the most attractive combo in sport. We are one of the only (if not only) international cricket teams that can adopt this. So why aren’t we?
All the best Zim kits I can recall were black heavy.
HK have had a few very classy red and black numbers in recent years.

I wish we could just keep it simple. Less is more.
I knew I forgot about them.
But they are very black heavy (in kit colour) arent they? last time i checked they were.
If we went for a predominant red heavy team kit, then thats a huge opportunity in sports marketing terms.
We already use red as our base colour.
Im guessing team colours is an afterthought, but this is such a huge gaping opportunity to get right.
Especially for kids, team jerseys are huge.
The 1995/6 Benson and hedges series between OZ,OZ A, Zim and England was a huge reason I followed both Zimbabwe and cricket. All those get ups were fantastic. All same theme too.

The 90's used to get so much right. Everything made sense and shit wasnt always so divisive (Murali aside, but at least in Oz everyone was on the same page he was cheating).

These are some nice red and black numbers;

But yellow is very much part of our colours so I'd like to see subtle yellow detailing and edges if possible.
