International Cricket Hall of Fame members, Sir Richard Hadlee and Debbie Hockley, modelled the bright blue, orange, green, yellow, and white uniforms, along with 300 volunteers.

Cricket World Cup 2015 New Zealand Head Therese Walsh said volunteers would be the face of the tournament, and it was important they were instantly identifiable, and had uniforms that were fun to wear.
