My thoughts on the new jerseys
Adelaide - Decent
Brisbane - Amazing
Hobart - Great
Renegades - Terrible
Stars - Great
Perth - Amazing
Sixers - Meh
Thunder - The worst
Strikers - 3 - Outer tone of blue is too contrasting with rest of shirt
Heat - 5 - Brilliant, Always had a great flame element, with very subtle yet bold enough colouring
Hurricanes - 3 - Large H shape draws attention to an oversized, bland element with a lack of a dynamic shape.
Renegades - 2 - Feels unbalanced, lack of continuity, design element is a bit muddled and confusing.
Stars - 2 - Green looks a bit dull, too significant a contrast between dark design element and shirt, the white glow is a bit garish
Scorchers - 4 - Gradient creates a symbolic reference, creates a bright focal point, contrast between logo element is slightly too high but blends nicely with rest of shirt.
Sixers - 4 - Clever use of a traditional design element to create an even greater contrast with the glowing illustration below, really strong colour
Thunder - 2 - What is that text? Trying to fill in a glaring gap in the design. The thunder drew the short straw with that colour 10 years ago

Can anyone explain why they think the Renegades ones are bad? The best kit we've had since BBL07 imo. Would be cooler if they worked the logo into it somewhere but otherwise kinda nice.
They just look a bit bland with the two squares. Personally if they wanted that 'Renegade' style they should have added it more, like fading in from the bottom with a light version of the logo in it. I think people don't like it because they could've done more but didn't.

Strikers' is good if you think suspenders are cool. But in general it was the right idea to not base the main design around their crappy logo, no such luck for the Stars (but that's what happens when you pick a bad nickname).

Renegades' is obviously the best. I can however understand why those with mere incipient taste prefer the offerings of, say, the Heat and Scorchers.

Back to pants matching pads for all teams it seems, thankfully, as the alternate always comes off looking like peak park cricket sloppiness.

And I was hoping things would change with the numbers and names on the back... but such a change would probably have been showcased today if it was to be.

In the video the Canes put up, the design seems to disappear in daylight. Hopefully we will be appreciate the designs during the game and not just in studio shoots.

Adelaide: A lot going on, but nothing that screams fantastic. - 3/5

Brisbane: Flame is back = good, may look more like shadowing when out on the field though = bad - 4/5

Hobart: Giant logo on front, check. Does it work? No - 2/5

Renegades: Different? Yes. Different good? Not really. - 3/5

Stars: Feels like a throwback to their first design. Star stands out which is better than Brisbane, but overall not as good. 3/5

Perth: As expected. Could do with more black on the shirt to create contrast in the design. - 4/5

Sixers: Very much the Sixers, but nothing to stand out from the crowd. - 3/5

Thunder: About what you would expect from the Thunder. Text stands out too much. Make the text less visible and add some more black on the sleeves and the rating would likely be higher. - 3/5

Overall: Better than the last set by a massive margin (but just about anything would have been). All could be improved with simple tweaks. Unfortunately most are middle of the road, not amazing, but not terrible, certainly not designs that have me wanting to race out and buy any. Total score = 3.125/5

okay fair enough. I do agree they could do more, but it's better than a plain red shirt that's for sure.

They are all pretty good apart from the Thunder (who thought sticking a great big "thunder nation" on the shirt was a good idea) and the Stars (the gradient treatment on the star just doesn't do it for me). Strikers is the best one here, love how it is mimics the helmet design. Will be picking one up for sure, hopefully there is a run of shirts before they sign a big ugly sponsor on the front.

I'm also trying to work out why Tones and I is an ambassador. She had a photoshoot with most teams jersey hat and hair colour. Apparently she is "A self confessed cricket lover". We'll probably not hear from her after this anyways so it wont really matter.
