Gujarat Titans to Wear Lavender Jerseys Against KKR: Why the Change?

The Gujarat Titans will be playing their final home game against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on May 13 and during this match, the players will be donning a different coloured kit for a special cause.


The team will be sporting special lavender jerseys to raise awareness about cancer during their match against KKR. This isn’t the first time the Titans have donned a different colored kit for a cause. Back in IPL 2023, they wore lavender jerseys during their final home game against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

In a press release, Colonel Arvinder Singh, COO of Gujarat Titans said, “Cancer affects countless lives, and the lavender jerseys are a small gesture on our part to the cause. The jerseys are a symbol of our support to cancer patients and survivors, serving as a reminder about the need for preventive measures and early diagnosis to win the battle against cancer. Together with our fans, we hope to create a meaningful difference in the lives of those affected by cancer.” 

Shubman Gill, Captain of Gujarat Titans, emphasized the team’s dedication to making a difference, “As sportspersons, we are aware of our social responsibility to our fans and the community at large. Wearing these lavender jerseys unites us with cancer fighters and honors their courage. Together, we hope that our efforts will contribute to a world where the burden of cancer can be overcome through awareness and education.”
