Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) unveiled a new logo on Friday after previously taking down posts, profile and cover photos from their social media handles, including Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
Players like Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Parthiv Patel, and Yuzvendra Chahal were left puzzled and went on to question what was going on with RCB’s social media accounts. Kohli even said that he was not informed about the activity on RCB’s social media handles.
However, on Friday, RCB revealed its new logo, which features a red backdrop, golden lion, and team’s name in black. The franchise tweeted about it and said, “Embodying the bold pride and the challenger spirit, we have unleashed the rampant lion returning him to the Royal lineage.”
Skipper Kohli reacted to the new logo and came up with a tweet which reflected his excitement.
“LOGO ka kaam hai kehna. Thrilled to see our new @rcbtweets logo. It embodies the Bold pride and challenger spirit that our players bring to the field. Can’t wait for #IPL2020 #NewDecadeNewRCB,” tweeted Kohli.

The upcoming season will be the 13th edition of the IPL. RCB, who have never won the title, will be looking forward to change their fortunes this time. They last managed to qualify for the playoffs in 2016, after which the ‘Team Red’ have finished bottom of the table twice in three years.
