Following the appointment of Faf du Plessis as the new captain for the 2022 season, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Saturday unveiled their new jersey for the upcoming edition of the IPL.
Du Plessis has replaced former India captain Virat Kohli in the top position. RCB will be looking to win their first-ever title in 2022.
RCB, on Saturday, unveiled the ‘2022 Season Team Kit’ and ‘Athleisure Collection.’ In front of their fans at Church Street, stylish cricketers Faf Du Plessis, Dinesh Karthik and Harshal Patel walked the ramp, displaying their new jerseys. The crowd shouted their lungs out while welcoming the new captain.
The design inspiration for the Athleisure Collections is inspired by Cosmic Space, bringing forth the energy of galaxies, mirroring the relentless energy of the RCB team.
The latest RCB team kit represents RCB’s passion and fervor for the sport.
This year the iconic red is reinvented with a seamless fusion of deep blue, creating the foundation for a dynamic and contemporary new livery makeover.
At the intersection of the tones lies a stylised lion, slivered, and subtly layered, symbolising the team’s inner resolve of being bold. Metallic gold accents bring alive a feeling of lustre and vibrancy.
