The team will be sporting a lavender coloured jersey to create awareness against Cancer.

Lavender is recognised and accepted as the colour of a cancer survivor. The move is aimed at improving cancer education and awareness as part of the ‘Daredevils Cares’ initiative, a Daredevils release said.

Daredevils have also asked their fans to wear purple in their Friday’s home match in order to support their cause.

Daredevils will provide the opportunity for the fans to buy the lavender-coloured kit from its merchandise stalls. Apart from that, every Daredevils player will wear a lavender-coloured ribbon and 100 cancer-affected children will watch the match.

This is not the first time that an IPL franchise has worn a different coloured jersey for a particular cause. The Royal Challengers of Bangalore(RCB) have wore green coloured jerseys in previous editions of IPL to promote a sustainable and green environment.
