Wouldn't need a white ball if white clothes were used.
In any case, if we're gonna wear colours let's not wear the same one.
But you need a white (and now pink) ball to play cricket at night.
The whole point of coloured clothing in the first place was to avoid batsmen losing sight of the white ball among the players' clothing.

But I agree, clash kits in cricket is perfectly fine. It's not necessary but neither is JB commentating...these things just happen.

Straying a little off topic now, but in an age where we have pink balls, do we still need white balls for ODIs and T20s?

We should use one ball for all Tests - the pink one.
Then unless the ground has no lights there is never time lost for bad light.
Pink ball for ODIs etc would be interesting with teams in red.

I thought for Test Matches that artificial light cannot become dominant anyway so it wouldn't save a whole lot of time

I am a traditionalist though, just don't want to see red-ball Test cricket disappear (as much as I enjoyed the BBL last summer)

Red uniform and pink ball would probably be similar to a sky blue team (England) with a white ball.

You've heard of D/N Tests right...the whole point being that you can play later than natural light allows :p

In D/N tests sure but in Day Tests you need predominantly natural light under current rules. To do otherwise would need a change of rules (which should happen, but I digress).

The white kits in limited overs takes me back to the State based T20s where at least three teams (NSW/SA someone else, maybe Qld?) Had white kits as CA wanted teams to use non primary colours.

WA had a dope black kit with gold trim and Tassie played in yellow IIRC.

...that's 100% what I'm saying. Use the pink ball and the requirement for natural light goes. The requirment is only still there BECAUSE the res ball is **** under lights. With a pink ball you can play a day Test at Marvel with the roof shut. Pink ball = no light issues.

Umpire shirts are slightly different for the WC. Black at the side with 'Emirates - Fly Better' instead of 'Fly Emirates'.

England in pale blue with darker trims looks amazing. The return to more pastel lighter colour uniforms is such a great look across the teams. Way better than the ‘big bash’ look of recent years.

The Alinta logos don't exactly pop on the green sleeves of the Aussie tops. May have been better sacrificing their colours in the name of visibility.

This weeks "Ask Steven" column on cricinfo:

http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/26890885/why-did-south-africa-change-their-kit-first-second-world-cup-matches

Why did South Africa change the colour of their kit between the first and second World Cup matches? asked David Bright from Scotland
For the first time in a World Cup, the ICC has decided that teams should wear contrasting kits - so when two sides meet whose kit colour is predominantly the same, one of them has to change. With South Africa and Bangladesh both usually wearing green clothing, something had to give for their match at The Oval. According to the ICC, it was agreed before the tournament what colour clothing each side would wear in each match, and South Africa opted to wear the yellow kit for their games against Bangladesh and Pakistan.
