MUMBAI - On the eve of their departure to New Zealand, Indian cricket team got a new dress in a darker shade of blue for one-day internationals here Wednesday.
The Indian cricket board’s official kit sponsor Nike unveiled the new jersey here with Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh, Zaheer Khan, Gautam Gambhir, Ishant Sharma and Rohit Sharma.
The new kit was developed after extensive research by designers and has been put through rigorous tests at the Nike Sports Research Laboratory.
‘Nike’s new ODI kit, with its technology features and bolder colours, is testament to this change in this great sport in our country. We wish our teams’ greater success in the coming seasons,’ said Indian cricket board secretary N. Srinivasan.
The current kit will be the team’s alternate dress.
