Mumbai:Nike, the official apparel sponsor of the Indian cricket team, today unveiled the new national team uniform for the 2007 World Cup at a function held here.

The company had discussions with scientists, players and coaches to design the new kit, which has been created to ensure optimised performance on the field by the players.

The kit was unveiled in presence of top Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) officials and seven Indian players including captain Rahul Dravid, vice captain Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Dinesh Karthick, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Zaheer Khan and S Sreesanth.

Speaking on the occasion, BCCI vice president Lalit Modi said ''Today, we equip our players with world class kitting for them to perform at the highest level,'' he added.

Explaining the salient points of the game day jersey, a Nike official said the jersey was made from Dri-fit fabric, which reduces cling and enables the skin to breathe easier. The fabric is also designed to wick sweat, which leads to better moisture management and is extremely light, so that the player is not carrying additional weight that may hamper performance and rather lead to enhanced performance, he added.
