Team India will debut in the new Nike One-Day International kit, which has brighter and bolder blue jersey made from recycled polyester in their first match against Australia at the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium in Kochi on Sunday.
The new jersey is made entirely from recycled polyester, each one produced from up to eight recycled plastic bottles, Ravi Kallayil, Business Director-Cricket Nike India Private Ltd, told reporters in Kochi.
The new kit is an important step in the process to make all Nike products more sustainable.
Kallayil said Nike continuously strives to bring technology and innovations into the sport and help athletes improve their game.
"The new ODI kit not only looks great and delivers performance benefits, but is also made with recycled materials, creating less impact on the environment," he said.
Nike would provide cricket fans an assortment of jersey replicas, including the authentic game day jersey.
Besides, a complete range of the team's training and travel gear will also be part of this range. These products would be made available at Nike stores and leading multi-brand doors across the country, he said.
