Look of Jersey
Delhi Capitals reached the IPL 2020 final after a fine run throughout the tournament. New name and logo which were changed in 2019 seemed to have brought changes for the side. This time, the Capitals will be expecting the new jersey to do some magic as well. They will be aiming for the trophy with a balanced team under the able captaincy of Iyer.
The jersey will be having the mail colours intact- blue (representing stability and confidence), and red (symbolising energy, passion & aggression). It is in a darker shade of blue that graduates to lighter tones. Speaking on the look of the jersey, Delhi Capitals Director & Interim CEO Vinod Bisht said, “The new jersey looks trendy, which is in sync with our team – a vibrant, young side ready to take on a challenge, and the tiger claws make a strong statement.”
