The Scottish team had invited designs from children across all schools in the country for their dress. The team received close to 200 entries. However, out of all these, the design of Rebecca Downie was chosen as the winner of this competition.
Scotland’s jersey is based on the colours of the country’s national symbol ‘The Thistle’. Before leaving for the T20 World Cup 2021, Rebecca presented the team jersey. At the same time, she and her family were also invited as special guests for the match against Zimbabwe played in Edinburgh.
