Team India players will be wearing a new kit in the upcoming series against England starting from 15th January.
According to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), sportswear giant and sponsor of Team India, Nike has created “the most innovative team kit” in consultation with the players.
“The game has evolved; so have the requirements of the game and the needs of the athletes. Nike designers engaged with the Indian cricket team athletes to help understand their demands to create the most innovative team kit for Team India,” BCCI said on Thursday.
“Nike’s Team India jersey embodies the spirit of self-belief,” according to BCCI.
The key feature in the new kit includes “4D Quickness”, which provides multi-directional and multi-dimensional stretch for quickness along with tuned breathability that helps with temperature regulation to keep athletes cool.
