The list also included the jersey worn by the Men in Blue during the 2003 ODI World Cup. Australia’s 1999 kit got the top rank while Pakistan’s 1999 jersey got the second rank in the list declared by Cricket Australia.
The greatest men’s CWC Jerseys ranked by Cricket Australia
1 – Australia 1999

Pakistan’s jersey was lethal lime green in color and had a huge five-pointed star. They were the runners-up in the tournament.

4 – Scotland 2015
Scotland’s jersey had wonderful shades of deep blue and purple which made it the standout fit from the 2015 World Cup.
5 – India 2019
Team India’s jersey had a striking orange color which created a perfect contrast with the ever-used navy blue base. However, the Men in Blue donned the orange kit just once in the all-important game against the hosts England.
