Whenever I’m out on the street playing Leg Cricket, I always think of getting a jersey designed for my team.

I’d probably want the number 21, because, duh, it’s my date of birth! But, that’s not how it always remained. The women’s cricket teams from around the world would wear different types of ‘uniforms’ during their matches.

When you scroll through the pictures, you will also realize how tough it might’ve been for the women to perform with these clothes on.
