Ahead of the IPL 2019, the Rajasthan Royals have made a big announcement today. The team is all set to wear pink jersey for the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League. The colour pink has a deep connection to Rajasthan. Jaipur is known as the pink city, Jodhpur is famous for pink sandstone and Udaipur produces pink marble.
