The new 15% lighter uniform

Amidst typical hype and razzmatazz, in a bright show of power-point presentations and video capsules, Nike and the Board of Control for Cricket in India unveiled the Indian team's new kit. Ever since the board tied up with Nike, the wheels of commerce and innovation have been turning, and the latest offering is a team uniform that is lighter - 15% by weight and about the same in terms of colour.

From a deep sky blue, Team India will now be clad in powder blue. You'd think clothing was a fairly straightforward business but with patented technologies, and jargon like dri-fit, engineered mesh, sublimation technology flying about thick and fast, it would have been easy to have been fooled into thinking you were attending a science seminar.

.. hope this would help the player's mobility in the out-field and between the wickets improve by 15% (or atleast 0.0015%)

Gosh. Still ugly. I wish they would come up with a better color.

And, BTW, India is printed in yellow on a light blue background with no distinguishing border. What idiots. They need to learn a thing or two about human factors and readability. Just like the idiots in the crowd at a cricket game in India with signs that can't be read.
