Further, the statement read that the team is reinventing itself. For the same, they want to go with the opinion of Rajasthan People, who chose Pink colour rather than the blue one.
In a statement released the franchise explained the reason behind this move and said, “Jaipur is known as the pink city, Jodhpur is famous for pink sandstone and Udaipur produces pink marble. Pink, therefore, is best suited as the official colour of Rajasthan Royals, which will also help the fans identify and celebrate their team.”
