Texas Super Kings Launch Official Kit For MLC 2023
Texas Super Kings took to Twitter on July 9 and posted the video displaying their official jersey with the caption, “Our constant, our pride, OUR JERSEY!”
“They say change is inevitable. It’s permanent. It’s, in fact, a constant. But you know, what’s been our constant? Our Pride, passion, team spirit, fire in the belly, jersey.” their skipper Faf du Plessis can be heard saying in the video.
The video further progressed to show the evolution of the Super Kings’ jersey in different leagues. After showing the glimpses of Chennai and Joburg’s kit, it reveals the first look of the Texas Super Kings’ official jersey with skipper Faf du Plessis’ name and No 13 imprinted on the back of the jersey.
On July 11, Texas Super Kings posted the picture of Faf along with Dwayne Bravo and Lahiru Milantha wearing the official jersey on their Twitter handle. “First look of our Kings in new threads. How do you like the new look?” they added the caption.
Texas Super Kings’ yellow-colored jersey features a roaring lion with maroon stripes and MLC’s logo. The major difference between the three jerseys of the Super Kings franchise are stripes – Green in the JSK jersey and Camouflage in the CSK jersey. Instead of wearing caps, the TSK players will be seen in yellow hats, which feature the logo of the franchise in the middle.
Faf du Plessis-led TSK will kick start their campaign against the Los Angeles Knight Riders in the MLC 2023 opening game at home on Friday, July 14. The Knight Riders franchise have got arguably the strongest side on the paper for the upcoming season.
Several current and former Chennai Super Kings players will be seen playing for TSK in the inaugural MLC. Former CSK pacer Dwayne Bravo will once again take the field under the leadership of Faf.
Devon Conway, Mitchell Santner, David Miller, Gerald Coetzee and Daniel Sams are the other foreign players in the TSK squad. Ambati Rayudu too was a part of the side but has pulled out of the season due to personal reasons.
