Nike India, official apparel partner of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), launched the Indian cricket team’s new ‘dry-fit technology’ kit for One-Day Internationals. 

The team will be seen in action in the new kit with a tricolor design on a bold blue background during the five match series against New Zealand. 

“The dry-fit fabric has excellent moisture management technology,” said Mr. Tarun Puri, Managing Director and General Manager, Nike India. 

Sahara India, which has been with the BCCI for 14 years, is also pleased with the new kit. “I liked the new color. The blue shade has been the same for many years,” said Abhijet Sarckar, Head (Corporate Communications), Sahara India Pariwar. 

“It’s time for a change and it’s nice. Hopefully the Indian team will give its best shot and return with a couple of trophies from New Zealand,” said skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni. 

Dhoni, Zaheer Khan, Dinesh Karthik, Pragyan Ojha, Rohit Sharma and Yuvraj Singh walked the ramp displaying the new kit. 

Former India cricketers Laxman Sivaramakrishan (1985), Venkatesh Prasad (1996), Vinod Kambli (1997) and Robin Singh (1999) appeared on the ramp wearing the blue colours of their time. 

Harsha Bhogle asked Dhoni about the secret behind his capacity and also keeping his calm on the field. 

“Expressing frustration doesn’t contribute to the team. The player knows he has made a mistake. I do it in a personal way, talking to the player in the dressing room.” 

Yuvraj was asked Dhoni if he’s happy and comfortable at No. 4 in batting order. “Well, as long as he performs, I am,” said Dhoni.
