Special Jerseys Are Part of The IPL
Various IPL franchises have used special jerseys for various occasions. Recently, Rajasthan Royals wore a special jersey to pay tribute to their former captain Shane Warne.
Royal Challengers Bangalore will also be wearing a special jersey on Sunday for their match against Sunrisers Hyderabad as they have been doing since 2011. They wear a special green jersey to spread the message of a greener planet. Last year they wore a blue jersey themed on PPT kits as they paid their tributes to the front-line health care workers.
Delhi Capitals too recently wore a special jersey in their game against Kolkata Knight Riders. They have been doing this for the past 3 seasons.
As far as having the names of the mothers’ on the back of the jersey is concerned, the Indian Mens’ cricket team wore a special jersey in a game against New Zealand in 2016. It was the last ODI of the series with both teams tied on 2-2 going into the last game. India scored 269 in the first innings and dismissed NZ for their 4th lowest total in ODIs.
Amit Mishra’s 5 wicket haul helped India win the match by 190 runs.
That was the first time in the history of sports that players went into the field with their mothers’ names on the back of their jerseys.
