Indian T20 League’s (ITL) upcoming edition is just days away, with the opening game scheduled for March 31. With the coveted league knocking at the door, participating franchises have launched their jerseys for the upcoming season. Rajasthan launched theirs on March 21, Tuesday with their new title sponsor, Luminous, printed on the torso of the shirt.
The jersey is pretty much the same as previous year, with minor pattern changes. The franchise held an official photo shoot ahead of the season’s start. Photos from the same have gone viral online. Riyan Parag, San Samson, Joe Root and Ravichandran Ashwin were seen sporting the new jersey. Fans were quick to troll the franchise’s choice of colour erupting a mini-twitter storm.
Rajasthan’s new team song is written by Amit Trivedi
Rajasthan franchise also recently announced the release of their brand-new official song in advance of the next ITL 2023 season.
The lyrics for the brand-new song “Halla Bol,” which features Rajasthani folk vocalist Mame Khan, were written by renowned Bollywood composer and performer Amit Trivedi. The tune was composed by Sholke Lal. The song, which is masterfully fused through a mixture of modern and traditional music and has a chantable appeal to it, aims to attract to the club’s diverse fans by communicating the team’s spirit through the way cry of “Halla Bol,” according to a press release from the organisation.
The lyrics of the new song maintain a strong sense of Rajasthani state and culture. Even yet, the melody is different from the team anthems’ earlier forms, “Halla Bol” and “Phir Halla Bol,” which were constructed using more traditional notes. The new song aims to produce a compelling in-stadium experience that motivates the players and is enjoyable enough for the audience to groove to. By doing this, the Rajasthan family will be able to appeal to a younger and more varied audience and create a distinctive, appealing atmosphere.
Here’s how fans reacted to the viral photos:
