The team of Rajasthan Royals will look forward to a match against Chennai Super Kings in Jaipur on Friday. This time instead of the blue jersey, players will wear a pink jersey. The team has taken this decision to spread awareness about cancer. The team is appealing to get aware of time against cancer.
Under the Cancer-Out campaign of Rajasthan Royals, Captain Ajinkya Rahane also got checked-up on cancer with teammates Krishnappa Gautam and Mahipal Lomror on Wednesday. Rajasthan Royals is running this awareness campaign jointly with the State Government, National Cancer Grid, Indian Cancer Society and Indian Dental Association.
Rajasthan Royals also made a tweet about it. RR is also very excited about it.

What's our new jersey all about?
PINK – Breast Cancer
BURGUNDY – Oral Cancer
TEAL – Cervical Cancer

It’s noteworthy that Rajasthan Royals is the second team of the IPL, which is using this kind of way to spread awareness on issues related to social interest. Earlier, Royal Challengers Bangalore were seen in green jersey instead of their regular red one in a match under the environmental protection campaign. Now another team will arrive in Pink Jersey with a similar message.
RR This Season
However, this IPL tournament is not going well for Rajasthan Royals. They are at no. 6 in the points table and still searching the regular winning track. Rajasthan Royals have come after two years IPL ban this season, but they are continuously disappointing their fans. Fans will hope that this new colour jersey can bring blessings to their team.
