RCB will play their first match with KKR in the UAE leg of IPL 2021. In this match, the players of the team are going to come on the field wearing a blue jersey, not a red jersey. In fact, the franchise wants to pay tribute to the Corona Frontline Warriors through this. The color of the PPE kit is blue, so the color of the jersey will also be blue.
Posting a video through its Twitter handle, RCB wrote, “RCB will play against KKR on September 20 wearing a blue jersey. We want to promote the blue jersey in RCB. This jersey will be like the blue color of the PPE kit. Through this jersey, we want to support our frontline warriors working on a war footing during the corona virus pandemic.”
RCB is at number-3 in the points table
IPL 2021 was held in India. But due to the increase in Kovid cases in the bio bubble, the BCCI postponed it indefinitely. But now the tournamentHosting is scheduled to begin on 19 September. Talking about Virat Kohli’s team RCB, it performed well in the first phase.
Having won 5 out of 7 matches, the franchise finished third in the points table with 10 points. Now in the UAE leg as well, the franchise will continue with the same performance, aiming to win the title.
