After playing in blue jersey for nine years, Indian Premier League franchise Rajasthan Royals will don pink jersey in IPL 2019 season.
Lead owner Manoj Badale said, “This comes as a response to the fantastic reaction from fans to our training kit and cancer out jersey last year, as well as of course Jaipur being the Pink city.”
Rajasthan Royals have also announced the return of its First Royal Shane Warne. Warne will make several trips to India to help the Royals launch pink jersey officially. Warne will also build their international fanbase and wow the Royals sponsors with his exceptional cricketing knowledge.
Rajasthan Royals brand ambassador Shane Warne has been closely associated with the team since leading the team to a title win in the inaugural season. He went on to captain the team for four seasons until 2011, after which he retired from all forms of cricket. The 11th edition of the IPL saw Warne returning to Rajasthan Royals as a mentor.First published: 11 February 2019, 16:08 IST
