The 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) which was suspended earlier this year owing to COVID-19 condition in India will now be resumed in this September-October window in UAE just like last year’s edition of IPL.
The Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will be beginning their UAE-leg against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have decided to sport a blue jersey to honor the frontline workers fighting against COVID-19 in India in their first match back on Sept 20, something that they had announced in May.
“RCB to wear Blue Jersey v KKR on 20th. We at RCB are honoured to sport the Blue kit, which resembles the colour of the PPE kits of the frontline warriors, to pay tribute to their invaluable service while leading the fight against the Covid pandemic,” the Bangalore-based franchise tweeted.
Instead of their flagship 'Go Green' campaign jersey, RCB will be sporting blue this year. The blue jersey will also have important healthcare messages engraved on it.
Have a look at RCB’s tweet:
