The pace stalwart posted a picture of him donning the New Jersey with his Name and Jersey number printed on the back. He posted it on Instagram with the captions “Test Match Cricket going to be glorious at Lord’s. Come On England!


Test Cricket is going to see a major change as it will be the very first time in International Cricket that the teams will wear personalized jerseys. Coming in a series of the repute and prestige of the Ashes, where both teams don the new jerseys, would be the right inception point. Until now, shorter formats only had personalized jerseys with a player’s name and jersey numbers printed at the back.

Earlier, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) had also given hints of bringing in the modification in the white Jerseys. Yesterday, the Board took to twitter to confirm the news as they posted a picture of Captain Joe Root wearing the New Jersey on twitter saying, “Names and numbers on the back of Test shirts.”

Broad’s pace-partner James Anderson has been ruled out for the first test as he incurred an injury and failed to recover in time. He will make into the squad though, and his injury is being monitored.

England is set to play Ireland in a one-off test match scheduled from 24th July between 27th of July. Following is the 11-man squad: Joe Root (c), Moeen Ali, Rory Burns, Sam Curran, Jonny Bairstow, Stuart Broad, Joe Denly, Jack Leach, Jason Roy, Olly Stone, Chris Woakes.
