Mumbai, Aug 16: Team India is all set to wear the tricolor as Nike, who are the Board of Control for Cricket in India's kit sponsor, unveiled the Indian team's first specialist T20 jersey.




From now onward white Jersey are indisputably linked to Test cricket, and blue Jersey is for the 50-over match, the Indian team now has a shirt specifically for the T20 format.

The critical difference, apart from the visual, in this jersey, which is made from the equivalent of eight P. E. T bottles, is that it's 45% lighter than the kit the Indian team has been wearing thus far.

Indian skipper M S Dhoni was welcoming of the new shirt. Dhoni is also upbeat about upcoming ICC World T20 in Srilanka and said "We've had nearly a month and a half off and even when we played in Sri Lanka recently we have enough gaps between matches."

The biggest support was seen for Yuvraj Singh, who will make his comeback with first T20 against New Zealand at Vishakhapatnam on September 8.
