Rajasthan Royals appointed Legendary Australia spinner Shane Warne as the brand ambassador for the upcoming edition of Indian Premier League.
Shane Warne led Rajasthan Royals in 2008 to make him the IPL’s first ever champion. In the previous season, he was a mentor to Royal. But this year he was given a new role.
By 2011, Shane Warne was the captain of the Rajasthan Royals during the four seasons and later retired from all forms of cricket.
“I’m very happy to be back with the Royals and I’m grateful to the team and the fans for their constant support. It was important for us to retain our established values but at the same time develop a new and modern identity.” Shane Warne said.
“I am already in love with the new look of the team and hope the fans will love it too,” he added further.
Also, the Rajasthan Royals decided to change the jersey colour this year. They are going to change their blue colour jersey to pink. The franchise gave their feedback on this.
“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,” the franchise said.
“This is an exciting change for us and comes as a response to the fantastic reaction from the fans to our training kit and Cancer Out jersey last year, as well as of course Jaipur being the Pink city,” Manoj Badale added further who is lead owner of Rajasthan Royals.
