Scotland players are wearing a newly designed jersey in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. The freshly looking jersey is designed by a 12-year-old schoolgirl, Rebecca Downie. 

The design was chosen from over 200 entries from school children across Scotland and selected unanimously by the team, based on the colours of Scotland’s national emblem - the thistle.


Rebecca presented the new kit before the players left for Oman. She and her family were special guests in the match against Zimbabwe in Edinburgh where she met the players. 

A keen cricketer and Scotland fan said: “I was so excited when I heard I had won the competition, I couldn’t believe it.  I was so happy to see the shirt in real life, it looks brilliant! It was amazing to meet the team and watch them play against Zimbabwe. I will be wearing my shirt and cheering them on in every game in the World Cup.”  

Scotland captain Kyle Coetzer said: “It was great to meet Rebecca and her family recently and see her wearing the new shirt. The team are really proud of the design and we are planning to go out there and do it justice with our performances in the World Cup. We hope that the fans will enjoy the new design and wear them proudly as they support us from back home.”
