Delhi Capitals launched their brand new jersey ahead of IPL 2023. DC shared the glimpse of the new team kit on Sunday afternoon. The franchise has retained the blue and red combination but the design is different this year. Earlier, DC used to red even on the chest but this year, the red is only on the shoulder while the front and back of the jersey is completely blue. “Mood after looking at our #IPL2023 threads. #YehHaiNayiDilli ki Nayi Jersey,” DC captioned the photo in which David Warner, Axar Patel and Prithvi Shaw can be seen wearing it.
