Indian Premier League (IPL) is the buzzword this season. With India’s last international series before the start of the tournament done and dusted, all eyes have moved towards IPL. The past few days have already been full of announcements by the various franchises, with Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) announcing Faf du Plessis as their captain and the star-studded team unveiling their jersey.
Even Delhi Capitals, Mumbai Indians and more recently Gujarat Titans launched their jerseys and now Rajasthan Royals have joined the list of franchises to have unveiled their jersey. The first look of their jersey has surfaced on the internet. The franchise took to social media to make the announcement.
