Former Australian pacer Brett Lee is not a big fan of players sporting names and numbers on the back of their jerseys in Test cricket. He has lambasted the governing body of international cricket for coming up with this idea in order to popularize Test cricket.
Earlier this year, the ICC allowed Test playing nations to have the names and numbers on the jerseys of players. While the move was lauded by many, a few were not impressed.
“For what it’s worth I’m strongly against the players numbers & names appearing on the back of test cricket shirts! I think it looks ridiculous. @ICC I love the changes you’ve made to cricket in general, but on this occasion you’ve got it wrong,” Lee tweeted.
“In fact, I’ll take my apology back. The names and numbers are rubbish. Enjoy the series everyone,” Gilchrist said on Thursday.
