Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) were one of the first teams to resume training ahead of the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). On Monday, the RCB took to the social media to disclose their new jersey for the 2020 season. The likes of AB De Villiers, Virat Kohli, Parthiv Patel, Umesh Yadav, and Yuzvendra Chahal donned the same.
The Bangalore-based franchise has retained the black and red shades of the outfit as well as a hint of gold at the end of their sleeves. They have a brand-new sponsor this year and a freshly-designed logo that takes up significant space on the front side of the jersey.
It is indeed similar to a fresh start for the Virat Kohli-led side, who would be aiming to turn the tables on their oppositions. RCB finished last on the previous occasion, having won only five games out of their 14.
By posting a picture on the franchise’s official Twitter handle, they posted the caption. “Time to don the Red and Gold. Face the challenge and #PlayBold. Onto the battlefield, we stride. With all our might and all our pride!” RCB wrote while unveiling their new-look shirt.“

RCB players training with a golden helmet:
RCB athletes began their training ahead of the extravaganza by wearing the golden helmet, which looks as highly attractive. Their director of cricket operations, Mike Hesson, has been giving several virtual interviews, addressing team combinations and fitness issues.
The likes of Kohli, De Villiers, Navdeep Saini and Chahal hold the key while the franchise would rely on the experience of Aaron Finch, Moeen Ali, Chris Morris, and Umesh Yadav too. They also appointed former Australian Test cricketer — Simon Katich as the head coach.
