Nike, the official apparel sponsors for the Indian cricket teams, are unveiling the team's new ODI kit ahead of the upcoming ODI series against England, and are launching it with the motto reflecting 'Self-belief'.
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 today.
Talking about the new jersey, former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said, "The game has been evolving over the years and the need to have kits that are designed to suit the modern game has always been the priority for the team management and Nike. Features like the 4D quickness and Zero distractions will definitely help the team on the field.
Virat Kohli, India's newly appointed limited-overs captain, stirs your emotions like none else, right from running around in the field to speaking about how much he values the tricolour on his chest.
"Cricket has taught me everything I know about life. I truly believe that sport helps shape your character as an individual," Kohli said. "All you need is to believe in yourself. The self-belief that I learnt on the field makes me believe that I can accomplish anything on or off the field."
