Cricket World Cup 2023: England suffer another uniform blunder as kit manufacturer in spotlight

England have had yet another World Cup jersey blunder, with players sporting different types of fonts on the back of their shirts.

In their first two games, the team name on the jersey was in different font and in a range of sizes, with team sponsor Cinch also appearing on different sleeves for different players.

The ECB and kit suppliers Castore reportedly blamed a “third party” printer for the issue and sent a fresh set of jerseys to India according to The Telegraph.

While the national team’s name was fixed on the new shirts, a new issue was spotted with player’s names in different fonts and in different sizes against Afghanistan.

It remains to be seen who is responsible for the latest blunder, with the spotlight once again being placed on Castore following a string of incidents.

Premier League team Aston Villa’s players have also reportedly had issues with their jerseys, sporting a “wet look” they are unhappy with.

The players claim that the jerseys made by the Manchester-based company have weighed them down and their contract will reportedly be terminated.

That move comes after another Premier League club, Newcastle United, also cancelled their contract with Castore due to an exit clause.
