Uniform Blues for Team India

kiran-more-india-blue-kitRs. 197 crores (or $29 million) is what Nike paid to the BCCI to be the official kit sponsor for the Men in Blue!!!

And yet, this supposedly "most valued brand in team sponsorship" has sent its team to the South African Tour without official blazers and any formal attire. So, what you saw was Rahul Dravid addressing the media at the press conference just before their departure in a black t-shirt while the board officials present were in their smart BCCI blazers.

btw, what happened to the Team India's navy blue one-day kit that Kiran More showed off sometime last December??
