Warne joins Rajasthan Royals as brand ambassador
Former Australia leg-spinner and legend Shane Warne has joined the IPL side Rajasthan Royals once again, this time as a brand ambassador.
Warne, who led Rajasthan to their first IPL title in the very first edition of the tournament has joined the side once again. He was also the mentor of the side last year. But this time he has been introduced as the brand ambassador.
After being appointed as the brand ambassador, Warne said –
“I’m very happy to be back with the Royals and I’m grateful to the team and the fans for their constant support. It was important for us to retain our established values but at the same time develop a new and modern identity. I am already in love with the new look of the team and hope the fans will love it too.”
Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals has also decided to change its jersey colour from blue to pink this year. In a statement on Sunday, the franchise said –
“Jaipur is known as the pink city, Jodhpur is famous for pink sandstone and Udaipur produces pink marble. Pink, therefore, is best suited as the official colour of Rajasthan Royals, which will also help the fans identify and celebrate their team. This is an exciting change for us and comes as a response to the fantastic reaction from the fans to our training kit and Cancer Out jersey last year, as well as of course Jaipur being the Pink city.”
Warne captained Rajasthan Royals for four seasons until 2011 and then announced his retirement from all forms of cricket.
