Not only the players all the support staff too will wear the green jersey. This is not for the first time they are wearing the green jersey. The franchise has worn the green jersey in their previous editions as well.
They had initiated the tradition in 2011 at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium as part of their ‘Go Green’ initiative campaign towards a greener, and better environment, where one match of the season is marked as the green match.
As far the match is concerned RCB started of this season really well, they are currently placed at third spot of the points table. CSK are set to miss the playoffs for the first time in the history of IPL with just three wins in 11 of their matches.
