New Delhi: When the men and women's India cricket teams step on to the field to take part in the  World T20, they will be wearing new Nike kits.

Showcasing the team's signature blue colour, the design features a jersey with a new collar that has Asian influences. Four-way stretch pants feature articulated patterning on the knee section to withstand aggressive play.

"At every stage, the meaning of wearing India jersey changes. When you are the senior player, you have everyone on your shoulders and you can't let them down," India women's captain Mithali Raj said on Thursday.

"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."

Member of the men's team Ajinkya Rahane said: "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."

Nike is the official apparel sponsor of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Starting 6 March, India kits will be available at Nike India retail and through Nikecricket.in.
