Ok seriously, what is with cricket kits and arial condensed? Do designers just give up halfway through? Is there a guideline that teams must follow? As a huge fan of creative typefaces, these choices are honestly mind boggling.
This took 2 seconds, but this is practically what cricket kit designers would do if they had control of (what pains me to say) is the best looking jersey in the majors.

For ICC events all teams must have their name on the front of their shirts. If it's not a standard design element of their kit (eg India) then it's done in the basic font.
I'm not quoting any regulations on this but that's how I see the current situation. India have their name on the front of their kits in all short-form cricket and continue the same font into tournaments and everyone else has to add it on and use boring font.

whoever made the rule on having the arial condensed nation name on the front of the kits is a *******.

as if i'm not going to know the cricketer with a long ass last name on the back wearing dark blue & yellow isn't from sri lanka.
same goes for any other bloody country. the kits themselves are usually kinda cool (last couple posted above are nice, and especially when nations like aus & nz do the flashback uniforms as well).

I got no issue with it. It does mean less sponsor bs on shirts.
Just wish other teams would pick a better font.

I think this is why it's done. Takes up a spot where otherwise teams would want a sponsor that may or may not be a competitor of one of the ICC's.
