The Indian men's and women's national cricket teams will be using Nike kits during the World T20 cricket tournament in India which begins this month, the athletic footwear and apparel major has announced on its website.

Showcasing the country's signature blue, the design features a jersey with a new collar that has clear Asian influences. Four-way stretch pants feature articulated patterning on the knee section to withstand aggressive play. Bold, with a contemporary striped motif, the kits express the excitement and responsibility the players feel when representing their country.

"At every stage, the meaning of wearing India jersey changes," said Mithali Raj, captain of the Indian Women's National Cricket Team. “When you are the senior player, you have everyone on your shoulders and you can't let them down. When you are a debutant, you are playing for yourself and all those people who have made you a player. It is different, but when I don the signature blue kit, I carry it proudly, believing I will win."

Ajinkya Rahane, batsman of the Indian Men's National Cricket Team shares a similar sentiment: "Wearing the kit, going out there and playing for my country – it's an overwhelming feeling, which is almost impossible to express in words. But whenever I wear the kit, I believe I'm a hero,” he declares.

Nike is the official apparel sponsor of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Team India kits are now available at Nike India retail and Nike.com, the company said. (SH)
