India's New Jersey

Team India’s New Cricket Jersey was unveiled in a fashion show like function by Nike, where instead of models; cricketers walked the ramp according to the latest cricket news. In a sharp departure from the traditional light or sky blue, the color of the new uniform for the Indian team is now a darker, more steely-looking blue. This perhaps reflects the steel that Team India have displayed in recent times, the cricket news being dominated by their wins rather than their losses. This is a new Team India with a firm resolve, a steely determination to win, and an attitude which reflects that steely determination! The ‘New Jersey’ has several very futuristic and advanced features, such as ultra light, highly absorbent material for extra comfort of wear. It also has a mesh right down the back of the shirt, which allows for excellent breathability which apparently was at the players’ own behest. It took Nike 18 months to develop the new shirt which Captain MS Dhoni laughingly said “won’t get dirty so easily”, though one doubts very much if MSD is over concerned about doing the laundry.
