While both JK Lakshmi and Rajasthan Royals hail from the state, the aspiration of both partners is to constantly strive to rise, improve and scale newer heights.”
In fact, inspired by the impactful association with the Rajasthan Royals during IPL 2018, JK Lakshmi Cement launched a new brand named as JK Sixer Cement – a product which attributes the winning strokes to all class of constructions like the most scoring shot in cricket. The theme of cricket captured in the JK Sixer cement was well appreciated in various markets.
In this season’s renewed association of JK Lakshmi with the Royals; logos of JK Sixer – the official sponsor in the current season of IPL 2019, will flash on the back of helmets and caps of the squad.

The Royals’ team which had experimented with pink during practice sessions and even played a game last season has now switched to the colour this season from its blue jerseys in the last season.
“This is an exciting change for us and comes as a response to the fantastic reaction from the fans to our training kit and of course inspired by the colour of our state that has a touch of pink everywhere,” Barthakur said.
