With the 2023 edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) around the corner, teams are unveiling their new jersey. On Tuesday (March 21), Rajasthan Royals (RR) released their brand-new outfit.
This is the first time post the COVID-19 pandemic that multiple venues in India will be hosting the cash-rich tournament. The IPL also returns to the Sawai Mansingh Stadium – the home ground of the Rajasthan Royals
To make the occasion extra special, the Sanju Samson-led side took part in a special gesture. Taking to Twitter, the Royals shared a video, paying tribute to their groundstaff with skipper Samson thanking all those working behind the scenes to keep their home ground in good shape.
Calling them ‘main stars’, Samson also revealed that he and the team management decided to gift their first jerseys of the season to the groundsmen.
“So, at the Royals I feel the firsts are always very important and very special, so this season myself and the whole management decided that we’ll give our first jersey of the season to the groundsmen. I just wanted to thank them for all the care they have given us," Samson said in the jersey unveiling video.
The clip also featured short stories of the groundstaff, who want Rajasthan Royals to go one step further than last year and clinch their second IPL title.
Talking about the jersey of RR for IPL 2023, pink is again the primary shade. Besides pink, dark blue is the secondary colour, covering the neck and the upper arm regions of the shirt.
While the IPL 2023 is slated to get underway on March 31, Rajasthan Royals will open their campaign against Sunrisers Hyderabad on April 2.
