“This a different kind of a blue colour I’ll be sporting. It gives a message and it will be a milestone for RCB. It will be auctioned after the match to accelerate vaccination drives in India,” Virat Kohli said.

“It is an important factor (players joining the squad at different times) but that isn’t going to take away from what we set out to achieve and what we already set in motion in the last time,” he further added.

“We had a great start to IPL 2021 to the campaign and that is a driving factor that we can play a certain brand of cricket that we have already shown in the first leg with really strong and consistent performances, every player chipping in somewhere or the other etc.”

Earlier, RCB used to wear the green jerseys during every season to support ‘Go Green’. However, this year they have changed the colour to blue in order to back the frontline workers.
