EC World Cup of Jerseys: Round of 16 Match 6

By Tom Grunshaw and Daniel Beswick

Five quarter-final spots are locked up in the World Cup of Jerseys, with the last encounter a landslide victory for Vanuatu over Tanzania. On the crest of a wave and with live cricket on the horizon, the Pacific side look hard to beat.

In the other matches of the knockout rounds Scotland fought bravely against a giant in the kit World Cup, though it was the heavy public strength of Nepal that edged things. Bermuda were also too strong for the Dutch 1996 World Cup kit, with Germany too strong for St. Helena. Jersey and Uganda both garnered great support throughout the 24 hours with the two highest votes of the the competition thus far, though it was Channel Islanders who pushed away late in their matchup.

In the sixth Round of 16 match-up, it’s the Netherlands taking on Rwanda! Before we preview that clash, here is the bracket for the final 16 after the latest result!

Vanuatu secured their quarter-final place

Group Stage Summary

Tanzania and Nepal progressed from Group A, while Vanuatu and Scotland 1999 progressed in Group B. The Pink of Bermuda stormed home and Rwanda scraped enough votes across Twitter and Facebook to squeeze through in Group C and Group D was domination by the Dutch, with both the current kit and the 1996 World Cup shirt running away from the field to advance.

Germany took out Group E, topping both the Facebook and Twitter polls, with PNG’s Early 2010s kit overcoming a perhaps more-fancied Afghanistan 2015 effort. Group F saw the current Namibian kit run away in first, with St. Helena causing a huge upset, beating out Singapore by the barest of margins (a single vote!) across Facebook and Twitter polls. Kenya’s 1999 World Cup shirt stormed away in Group G, with the shirt (or jersey) from Jersey took second place across the Facebook Group and the Twitter page.

Note: Jerseys are the current kits used by both men’s and women’s teams unless stated.

Round of 16 Match 6
Netherlands v Rwanda

Netherlands

ICC Media Zone

Not many teams can almost claim a colour like the Dutch can with orange, and they tend to play well draped in their national colours. The Dutch team’s current kit also features a blue sleeve that creeps into the rest of the shirt, and brings out their orange logo.

The team went on to win the T20 World Cup Qualifier, and will pose a threat for the big boys in the Hobart group of the first round, assuming we get a tournament in.

Rwanda

ICC Media Zone

The nation of Rwanda adopted a new flag with new colours in 2001 to avoid connotation to the genocide seven years prior, and the cricket team also competes in a blend of yellow and light blue. Competition in the kit game even in African cricket is fierce, so for Rwanda to stick out shows a level of quality.
