HIGHLIGHTS

  • Rajasthan Royals organised a stadium live show in Jaipur to launch their jersey
  • The Sawai Mansingh Stadium was taken over by a 3D projection
  • Due to the COVID restrictions, this was a virtual ceremony

Rajasthan Royals revealed their jersey for IPL 2021 with a spectacular light show at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Sunday night. The Sawai Mansingh Stadium was taken over by a 3D projection and light show as Rajasthan Royals players revealed their jerseys for the 2021 season.

An audio-visual show was a live broadcast from the stadium to fans around the world and players of the Rajasthan Royals team in their bio-bubble in Mumbai. While many teams have launched their new jerseys for the upcoming season, the consensus on Twitter was that this was the best jersey unveiling by any team in the Indian Premier League (IPL) so far.

"The show was a celebration of everything that the Royals fans hold dear to their heart -- the stadium, the city of Jaipur, the Rajasthani culture and landscape -- as well as a reflection of how the franchise's association with Red Bull is helping them move forward at rapid pace, bringing out new ideas and helping the team grow," RR said in a release.

Rajasthan Royals (RR) took the cricketing fraternity by storm by winning the inaugural IPL edition in 2008 when nobody gave them a chance. From a change in skipper and coaching staff to buying the most expensive player in the history of IPL, the Jaipur-based franchise have brought big changes into the side after finishing at the bottom of the table last year.

South African all-rounder and IPL's most expensive auction buy, Chris Morris said, "Unbelievable reveal of the new jersey. From 2015 till now the jersey has changed a lot since the last time I played for Royals, and it is a beautiful jersey."
