Indian men and women team new kits for World T20 2016

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced the new kits for Indian men and women national teams  for the ICC World T20 2016 in India. Both teams will be wearing kits made by sports kits brand Nike. 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,” explains Mithali Raj, captain of the Women’s India 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.”

 Indian batsman Ajinkya Rahane also shared a similar thought, “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.
