Lucknow Super Giants revealed their official jersey for the latest edition of the Indian Premier League on their social media handles on 7 March. BCCI secretary Jay Shah, LSG captain KL Rahul, owner Sanjeev Goenka, and team mentor Gautam Gambhir unveiled LSG’s new jersey together.
The predominant color of the jersey is dark blue, with stripes of red on each side. This jersey is a striking contrast to its predecessor. LSG will hope that this darker variation brings them the much-needed X factor this season. Before the LSG jersey became the centre of attraction, a fashion show was hosted just before the unveiling ceremony.
To top it off, some of the LSG players took part in that show, showcasing their sense of fashion and glamour. Ravi Bishnoi, Jaydev Undakat, Deepak Hooda, Avesh Khan, and finally the LSG skipper KL Rahul walked on the ramp in colours that were similar to the jersey. After the unveiling ceremony, Gautam Gambhir, KL Rahul, and Sanjeev Goenka talked about what can be expected from LSG this season. Team mentor Gambhir emphasised the fact that consistency will be the key for LSG. The conditions will be different from last season. Thus, adaptability will play a key role in producing a result in their favour.
