Royal Challengers Bangalore has grabbed the headlines since Wednesday as the Indian Premier League (IPL) removed their logo and changed their name on all their social media accounts. A lot of reports suggested that Royal Challengers Bangalore can have a name change ahead of the new season and this move from the side left a lot of their own players confused. On Thursday, the franchise posted a picture on their social media with the writing ‘New year, New RCB’ and the caption - “B R A C E Y O U R S E L V E S.14th February, remember the date”. There are reports that RCB can also change their jersey after signing Muthoot Fincorp as the team sponsor.

 

Earlier, RCB captain Virat Kohli expressed his surprise at the development. Kohli wrote: Posts disappear and the captain isn’t informed. @rcbtweets, let me know if you need any help.
