Indian Premier League franchise, Rajasthan Royals on Wednesday morning revealed their new jersey for the IPL2020 season in a rather dramatic way. The franchise teamed up with Red Bull Skydiving and wing-suit athlete Dani Roman, who skydived and descended down to the private beach of Royal Mirage, in Dubai to hand the RR players their new jerseys.
In the video shared by the franchise on their various digital platforms, the Spanish skydiving athlete could be seen jumping out of a plane, several thousand feet above the Palm Islands, carrying with him a Rajasthan Royals bag and dropping it off at the beach for the players to grab.
Speaking on the experience, RR all-rounder Riyan Parag said, “I am aware of how Red Bull is about extreme sports and adventures so I was excited and expecting something crazy to happen today. Skydiving is something on my bucket list and seeing someone come down from the sky today and land with our jerseys was amazing.”
RR left hand batsman David Miller added, “It was a thrilling experience to witness the Red Bull athlete Dani Roman fly down to their beach side to reveal and handover their jerseys. Our mornings are generally very quiet but today it turned around totally with us being asked to head to the beach for a surprise. It was such a great view to see someone jumping off a plane and land to deliver our jerseys for the season.”
