India lite?

The Indian Cricket Board has partnered with Nike to produce a new uniform which is 15% lighter in weight than previous versions. It is also, according to Anand Vasu in Cricinfo , lighter in colour.

The big question is whether the reduced weight will improve India's on-field performances. If it appears to do so no doubt there'll be complaints with Law 42 (the one about fair and unfair play) being invoked (no prizes for guessing which country is likely to be the first cab off the rank).

There's a lot of interest in India at present in designing innovative apparel. For a non-cricket example see this post of mine at Casting a short shadow.
