Indian Premier League (IPL) season 10 is just days away now and all the teams have already started with their preparations. It has been a long season for all the cricketers all over the world with a lot of cricket being played. India have played four Test series on a trot with a one-off Test against the Bangladeshis. The IPL will be a sudden shift in gears for all the players as the other players are busy sharpening their skills.
All the Test playing nations have been busy playing Test matches here and there and with a hectic international circuit, the league has been struck with various injuries this year with many of the star players opting out of the tournament. One of the reasons why some of the major names have pulled out of the league is the Champions Trophy 2017 which will make a comeback on June 1.
All the franchises are making some or the other change to the setup to bring about a change in the outcome. RPS altered their name while Kolkata Knight Riders decided to introduce changes fashion wise. A few days ago the Pune franchise owned by the Goenka group changed their name from Rising Pune Supergiants to Rising Pune Supergiant. Well, there is a change if you notice closely. While KKR have absolutely overhauled the last year’s design of their practice jersey.
Last year the practice jersey of the Kolkata-based franchise was pretty much similar to their game jersey. It was black with the logo in gold and the corners marked in gold as well. There was a hint of purple on the side of the jersey. This year, however, the practice jersey of the Shah Rukh Khan-owned Kolkata Knight Riders is absolutely different.
It is half red and half black with the logo standing out in golden. The sponsor names are printed in yellow and do not blend with the red and black practice jersey. The round necks are bordered in black which looks good while the sleeves are also shaded in black and red.
