Team India donned the jersey for the first time in five-match series against Australia.

"This is our new jersey, which we will be sporting during the ODI series. It helps to be agile on the field," Rohit Sharma told BCCI.tv.
"One interesting fact is, along with all the colours, the dates when we won the first World Cup, the T20 World Cup, and our second 50-over World Cup winning date in Mumbai."
"[That is] rare and it is pretty nice and good looking."
