The Heat are in their 'Clash' strip again tonight. They should at least wear black pants with it if they are going to go with a black top.
What’s the deal with Brisbane Heat wearing their “clash” for seemingly no reason

I was wondering that too. The blue doesn't clash with the Renegades, actually, the black probably creates more of a clash. Maybe retails are becoming available and they were looking to expose it to a home crowd? Or there was possibly a property department mix-up (like WCE in 2007) which saw them bring the wrong jerseys to the ground?

Looks like it was the former. This is from the Heat merchandise shop:

Anyone happen to be at the GABBA tonight? Are the many advertisements flogging off the jersey and are the ground announcers explaining why the players are wearing it?

Bought one of these at the Boxing Day test, shirt is quite heavy and didn’t breathe too well. Hope they sell long sleeve ones!
That is one thing I noticed with wearing the Test shirts. They breathe so well and are so light. That is what you want when you are out there in the heat all day in a Test match.

Would like to see more teams make a black alternate for their uniforms. They aren't necessary and are frankly a money grab but I'd love to get my hands on one for the Renegades.

The Scorchers did a black training shirt a while back. The stars have a dark black training shirt now.

Scorchers have had dark shirts lately

Yeah I like these designs, especially the Stars I think that's a cool way of doing it. Just something to break up the mono-chromatic feel of the BBL once in a while would be welcome.

And Asics has gone and stuffed it up. A beautiful retro kit, with the current rubbish italicised dark green numbers. I know the original didn't have names and numbers, but how hard is it to come up with something that looks like it is part of the kit rather than just slapped on like an afterthought.

My understanding from the commentary today is it's just for this series. I reckon what was worn against RSA is more like what we'll see.
It has been extremely well received though so I wouldn’t be surprised to see CA trot it out for a second appearance
