The prominent colour of the jersey is dark blue, with strips of red on each side. The jersey is a striking contrast from its predecessor. LSG will hope that this darker variation brings them the much-needed X factor this season.
After the unveiling ceremony Gautam Gambhir, KL Rahul and Sanjeev Goenka talked about what can be expected from LSG this season. Team mentor Gambhir emphasized on the fact that consistency will be the key for LSG. The conditions will be different from last season. Thus, adaptability will play a key role in producing a result in their favour.
In order to achieve this LSG’s coaches and management team will play a key role. Former Zimbabwe captain Andy Flower will be the head coach of LSG for this season and Andy Bichel will operate as the bowling coach. The other coaches include Vijay Dahiya as the assistant coach, Richard Halsall as the fielding coach and finally Warren Andrews as the strength and conditioning coach.
The LSG squad for this season: KL Rahul, Ayush Badoni, Karan Sharma, Manan Vohra, Quinton de Kock, Marcus Stoinis, Krishnappa Gowtham, Deepak Hooda, Kyle Mayers, Krunal Pandya, Avesh Khan, Mohsin Khan, Mark Wood, Mayank Yadav, Ravi Bishnoi, Nicholas Pooran, Jaydev Unadkat, Yash Thakur, Romario Shepherd, Daniel Sams, Amit Mishra, Prerak Mankad, Swapnil Singh, Naveen ul Haq, Yudhvir Charak.
