IPL 2023 | Twitter makes fun of LSG for managing to put out two terrible jerseys in two years

Sometimes, the cure can be worse than the disease and the Lucknow Super Giants fanbase seems to have got a taste of such treatment. After receiving heavy flak last season for sporting a dull jersey, a switch of attire backfired on the franchise as fans complained of the new design is even worse.

Lucknow Super Giants enjoyed a successful first season under skipper KL Rahul, making it to the playoffs on debut before bowing out in the eliminator. The RPSG-owned franchise had managed to secure a host of fan favourites in the auction such as Marcus Stoinis, Quinton de Kock, and Ravi Bishnoi, and quickly developed a dedicated fanbase in their hometown which is incidentally the capital of the most populated state in the country. However, despite their best efforts on the field, a large section of fans retained some dismay throughout the season and beyond due to the choice of jersey for the team, an aqua blue attire with orange highlights.

In a bid to turn over that hate into support, the franchise decided to come up with a new jersey for the new season. In an unveiling ceremony on Tuesday, Rahul, RPSG owner Sanjeev Goenka, team mentor Gautam Gambhir and BCCI Secretary Jay Shah were all present to reveal the new design to the world. The new look comprised a much bolder, darker blue with hints of maroon replacing the incumbent orange. While the move was aimed as a response to last season's criticism, the marketing move ended up backfiring on the team.

Twitterati was quick to point out the lethargy in the design and the similarities it bore to Delhi Capital's jersey from 2013, thereby further drawing the ire of their fanbase.Β
