It’s finally here! The IPL season ten is all set to begin and thrill the hearts of its countless fans across the cricketing world. While one is eagerly waiting to be blown away with the magic and charm of IPL 2017, here we look at the jerseys of all the eight teams for this new season.
The defending champions have retained the same color for their jersey – a base of an orange having black borders. However, since the color orange has reaped great dividends for them, the SRH side has added an orange stripe on both the sides and on the collarbone of the jersey to add depth to it. It remains to be seen if this slight change brings them even better luck this season.
Royal Challengers Bangalore:
Last year’s finalists Royal Challengers Bangalore have retained the same jersey this season except for a change in the sponsor’s name in the middle. It was last year when RCB had changed their jersey from orange and gold to black and red. They have two jerseys – one for home games and the other for away games. It remains to be seen if this jersey can help them clear the final hurdle this team.
Kolkata Knight Riders:
With a very slight tweak to their jersey, the Kolkata Knight Riders have added a fresh look to their new season. KKR’s jersey was heavy on the purple-golden combination. But this year, they have added a strong touch of yellow to the bottom and sides. KKR have had a rather average last couple of seasons. Perhaps this change will transform their fortunes as well.
In an innovative step, the Mumbai Indians launched their new jersey via a tweet earlier this year. Their jersey remains almost the same except for the zip instead of buttons. Apart from that, the ‘Men In Blue’ of the IPL have gone with their favorite blue jersey with golden stripes this year too.
The surprise powerhouse performers from last year, Gujarat Lions will take the same jersey as they used in their debut season. The Gujarat Lions jersey is heavy on reddish-orange with a dash of blue stripes on the bottom and across the top. It’s a lively and colorful jersey and should help the Lions go for the kill this season too.
The biggest underperformers of the IPL, the Delhi Daredevils have gone with almost the same jersey as the one they used in the last season with one tiny change. They have done away with the yellow streak at the bottom. Perhaps, this little tweak will change their fortunes this year.
Rising Pune Supergiant:
Apart from the bizarre way they have changed their name, the Rising Pune Supergiant have also changed their logo in their new jersey. The new logo sits pretty at the top left and the new sponsor’s logo remains at the center. Other than these, the RPS jersey has the same combination of purple, pink and yellow on their jersey.
Kings XI Punjab:
The Kings XI Punjab have chosen to go with their same tried and tested jersey for IPL 10. Punjab has a vibrant jersey with a deep base of red along with gray stripes on the sides. They also have the logo of a lion at the bottom which makes their jersey look pretty cool. It remains to be seen whether Punjab can be as vibrant and cool as their jersey this season.
