The Royal Challengers Bangalore will look to continue their tradition of donning their special green jersey for their Go Green Initiative. The franchise will wear their green kit when they take on the field on Sunday against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Notably, the movement is for creating awareness about environmental conservation and planting trees. 

RCB through this initiative also wants to spread awareness about recycling and reusing that will help in rescuing waste in the world. The 2016 finalists started this tradition of wearing the green jersey in 2011. 

The RCB Twitter account made the announcement about the initiative and said, “Continuing the #GoGreen sustainability initiative that we started in 2011, #RCB players would be wearing Green Match Kits when they step onto the field this Sunday against SRH at 3:30 PM IST. Here’s more on @kreditbee presents Bold Diaries.”

Notably, both teams have looked great this season but RCB fans should still worry because their record with the Green jersey is poor. In the ten games played with the special threads, Bangalore has lost seven games while winning just twice. 

However, RCB will enter this game after registering a resounding victory over the Chennai Super Kings where Harshal Patel had an incredible performance. The Team India pacer has had a difficult season so far as he tragically lost his sister in the middle of the 2022 edition of the tournament.

In the post-match interview, he talked about his performance and said,  “I think in the first over, I was trying to bowl slower balls into the pitch but I floated a couple just under the bat and those are the ones that went to the boundary.”

Patel then also talked about the technical changes he had for the CSK game. He said, “For the last four or five games, I've been trying to concede two less boundaries in my spell but be a little more tighter with my execution and sequencing. When I look at my last four or five games, I didn't have as much impact as I did in the first half. So, that's what I've been trying to correct and very happy I was able to come back the way I did.”
