The Korobo.. Lorbo… Jeetbo gang is back for a new Indian Premier League season. With same faces but new colours. The core purple stays but with a major makeover. Keeping with their tradition of starting the new IPL 2019 season with a new look, Kolkata Knight Riders have launched their playing jersey for the Indian Premier League 2019.
For once, the trademark shining gold or silver is out. But traditional purple stays in the two-tone jersey with the shaded of mustard strokes from the bottom to top which merge into the purple and fade out a little above the waist length.
While launching the jersey, team skipper Dinesh Karthik has also availed the opportunity to market the product with an emotional message.

“This is every KKR fans biggest treasure including mine,” says Karthik in a tweeted video message. “The biggest treasure – the jersey. Every year there is always a different style, feel and look. I liked the two-tone cool design this year.
“Every KKR fan must buy the original jersey and come wearing this to cheer for us during this season.”
TheKKR will start their IPL 2019 campaign on Sunday, March 24 when they play host to Sunrisers Hyderabad.
