new blue

India's 'World Cup Colours' are revealed, with Nike expectedly calling them hi-tech. They seem a little too light in colour for my liking, and shiny, though both of these might seem more than they are thanks to the stage lights in the pics. Also the green of the flag is quite low on the shirt, notice how its lost on so many of these players, once tucked in.

The colours of the graphics on the new jersey take inspiration from the Indian flag and represent speed and motion.


I just hope they also ensure some speed in the field, the lack of which is possibly the team's biggest weakness going into the tournament.
My question is- what happened to these grand plans that were unveiled when Nike signed on as sponsors well over a year ago??

i hate these...shiny!! and the blue looks so washed out...yuck...
i loved the old indian colours...the really really dark blue...looked really aggressive....the new australian colours also look good with a combination of dark green and yellow....

i know what you mean- I am hoping they look better on-field!
As for australia. I mentioned a few posts earlier that i really like their yellow or 'away' kits- the home ones I did not like one bit.
