#3 2002-2005

Bhaichung Bhutia leads the Indian team in 2006

In 2002, India signed a deal with German sports giant adidas for the national team's kit, with the first adidas kit for the Blue Tigers being an all-white strip. It all changed two years later when India started sporting a striped shirt, all blue of course. The stripes were a combination of a darker shade of blue with a lighter background tone of blue. However, India's poor performances under Constantine led to the Englishman's sacking and also led to a new kit sponsor for the national team in 2006.

#4 2006

In 2006, India sealed a deal with Nike for the national team's kits and the two parties haven't looked back since. Nike made a simplistic kit in 2006 with a light blue shirt and white short. There was a little shade of white on the shirt as well.
