There is a crowd of teams in the UAE for the second phase of IPL 2021. And all the other teams also started training. Not only this, on the 19th of this month, a tough match is going to be seen in the field. But, in this, Virat Kohli-led RCB is going to play their first game against KKR on 20 September. Now the course of the war is new, if the phase is second, then the style of their beginning should also be new. So RCB will also be seen in a different color in their first match. Their jersey against KKR is going to be blue, not red. But, this is going to happen only for this one match only. Now that it is so, it is obvious that there must be some reason or the other. So the reason for this is to support those frontline workers fighting Covid.

We at RCB are honoured to sport the Blue kit, that resembles the colour of the PPE kits of the frontline warriors, to pay tribute to their invaluable service while leading the fight against the Covid pandemic.#PlayBold #1Team1Fight pic.twitter.com/r0NPBdybAS
Even in the first leg of IPL 2021, captain Virat Kohli and his team RCB were strongly supporting frontline workers competing with Covid. And, wearing light blue jerseys has started supporting them. RCB is wearing a light blue jersey in support of frontline workers because its color is going to be visible in PPE kit accessories. Kohli has also announced that his franchise will also provide financial assistance to strengthen healthcare infrastructure.
RCB has set up up to 100 units of oxygen concentrators in association with the Give India Foundation to provide oxygen support to Bengaluru and other parts of the country.
