Rajasthan Royals had a Royal landing of their IPL 2020 new jersey as a skydiver landed the team jersey off a plane on a beach in the UAE.
The players who were enjoying their morning on the beach after a long practice session the previous night were amazed by seeing the whole scenario said Robin Uthappa in a video posted by Rajasthan Royals on social media. Riyan Parag who is the only player of the squad who was already aware about this lovely surprise for the entire squad & was the first to leap out to the bag that landed form the sky and pick out the jerseys from it.
“Everyone is guessing different things. Everyone is guessing yachts, everyone is guessing jet skis and stuff,” Parag could barely hold his excitement in the video. The skydiver packed the brand new jerseys in his backpack & boarded the flight even as the players idled on the beach playing football.
It was Ankit Rajpoot who drew the attention of his teammates to a man coming towards them straight from the sky & soon the players eyeballs got hooked to this skydiver who had landed among them with the help of a parachute.
The guest was given an ovation upon landing as the players soon found out the reason behind his high-flying rendezvous. Rajasthan Royals were the winners of the inaugural session of the IPL in the year 2008 & since then they weren’t able to win the maiden IPL title. After a fourth-place finish in 2018, Rajasthan’s performances regressed as they finished seventh in 2019.
Rajasthan Royals will now be led by Australia’s Steve Smith who is yet to arrive in the UAE & is with the Australia’s team to play two limited over series in the UK. Rajasthan will play their first IPL match on September 22 against CSK.
