History


New Zealand became the

fifth nation to play Test cricket in January 1930. They were the first team apart from the starters, England and Australia, to play ODI cricket. They played their first-ever ODI in February 1973 against another ODI debutant, Pakistan cricket team. They featured in the very first T20I against Australia in 2005. They have participated in all ICC events so far.


ICC Cricket World Cup


The ‘Black Caps’, as they are commonly known, finished as semi-finalists in the first two Cricket World Cup editions. They faced a similar fate four more times in 1992, 1999, 2007 and 2011 before crossing the hurdle for the next couple of times in 2015 and 2019. They have co-hosted the tournament with Australia in 1992 and 2015.

The New Zealand Team Jersey


The New Zealand limited-overs jerseys have been primarily black over the years. They have got the nickname ‘Black Caps’ because of the black uniforms and caps that they wear. The ODI jerseys are all black while the T20I jersey contains more grey and just a strip of black where the sponsors title appears on the front.
