Rajasthan Royals have unveiled their new jersey for the upcoming season in an event in Jaipur. The franchise are making a comeback into the Indian Premier League after two years.
They along with Chennai Super Kings were banned in 2015 for two years after being found guilty of match fixing and cricket betting allegations. However, with the return of the franchise, the buzz has been very positive over the recent months.
The new jersey has pretty much a familiar look with some nice additions to their crest. JK Lakshmi is the title sponsor for the team this season and their logo is upon the front on their jersey.
