The 14th edition of the Indian Premier League is just a few days away and all the eight franchises are looking in a complete mood to make this season extra special.
Meanwhile, the most entertaining team of the last season, Punjab Kings (then Kings XI Punjab) have revealed their new jersey on Tuesday ahead of IPL 2021. Also, there is a change in the logo of the team as the new logo depicts a shield inside which the team name has been written with the lion roaring.
Notably, Punjab Kings are yet to lift their maiden IPL trophy. With the change in the logo and name, the franchise wishes to change its fortunes too. Apart from Punjab Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Delhi Capitals (DC) are the other two teams who are yet to grab their maiden T20 trophy.
Coming back to Punjab Kings’ new Jersey, Players will continue to wear red and the new jersey will also feature golden stripes. The primary colour for the jersey will continue to be red, with golden stripes forming the edges of the design, while the crest of a lion will also be sported below the primary sponsor logos.
Punjab Kings also announced that they would be wearing golden helmets in IPL 2021. They will join the likes of Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore who have sported golden helmets over the last few years.
The new jersey of the Punjab Kings has already stole all the limelight within a few minutes of its release but for all the wrong reasons.
Many fans aren’t happy with the jersey as they compared it with the old jersey of Royal Challengers Bangalore and trolled the management for copying RCB.
