The baggy green is the cap worn by the Australian Test cricketers since twentieth century. It is said to be the most famous cricket cap in the world and is a symbol of national pride in Australia.
Baggy green has always been famous and held huge respect, however the tradition of handing the cap to the young players was started by Steve Waugh and Mark Taylor.
Waugh said, “To be able to partake of these rituals and traditions has meant you have been awarded the highest honour in Australian cricket — you have been selected to play for your country.”
The latest to get this baggy green has been Jackson Bird during the Sri Lankan series.
