Strip a blast from the past for Black Caps

Black Caps fans have had their say, willing an earlier version of their strip back into existence for the side's two upcoming series against Australia.

After voting took place in March last year, the Black Caps will wear the teal-coloured kit of the late 90s worn by players such as Stephen Fleming, Nathan Astle, Adam Parore and a young Daniel Vettori.

The strip was revealed in a tweet on Tuesday, 

The teal strip beat out the challenge of the beige of the 1980s, the horizontal grey hoop and the black shoulders of the late-80s.

The Black Caps will wear the teal uniform during both their three-match ODI series against Australia beginning on Friday and the three-match T20 series back on New Zealand soil in late March.
