New Nike limited-overs kit for India to debut in cricket series against Oz

New Delhi, Oct 10 (ANI): Nike, the official apparel sponsor of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), has unveiled the new limited-overs Team India uniform that will debut in the India - Australia series in October.

Nike's new team kit draws inspiration from the passion and support fans have for cricket and their world champion national team, with the uniform being a striking contemporary blue, with a textured, premium finish.

Designed to enhance the modern requirements of the game and its players, the jersey has a dynamic fit tailored to the athlete's body, a result of 3D body mapping of the world's top athletes and insights gleaned from collaboration with the Indian cricket team.

Players expressed the desire for a jersey that moves with them and is comfortable enabling a complete focus on their game. The jersey is accented with a cutting edge graphic on the shoulders.

Bob Coombes, Vice President and General Manager, Nike India Pvt. Ltd., said, "The kit combines superior lightweight performance made from 100 percent recycled polyester, causing minimal impact on the environment while ensuring that the design aptly reflects the winning attitude of the team."

In keeping with Nike's Better World philosophy, the kit is constructed for the first time with the polyester fabric that is lightweight, reinforced with increased stretchability and enhanced moisture-wicking capabilities. Improved ventilation zones provide additional comfort and cooling.

The first-ever four-way stretch pants for Team India complete the kit. The pants feature a more streamlined, shrink-wrap fit for better movement on the field. A new woven fabric has been introduced to help athletes move better and enhance durability.

The Team India kits are now available at select Nike retail and through (ANI)
