Pink day in pink city

Pink was the ubiquitous colour at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium on Saturday, to advertise a cancer awareness project.

Pink was the ubiquitous colour at the Sawai Mansingh stadium on Friday. Cancer patients had 400 seats reserved for them in a pink-themed stand at the stadium. Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Vasundhara Raje was also present. “I am proud that our team is wearing pink to focus on the Caner Out initiative,” said Rahane.
Fans wearing pink T-shirts streamed in long before the game started. Here, fans wave the pink flag to cheer for the home team. Rajasthan Royals’ association with a cancer awareness project shows the way forward for franchises to take up social causes, using the reach of Indian Premier League to connect with the masses.
Rajasthan Royals players wore pink for this particular occasion. Here, Jos Buttler (centre) and others celebrate the fall of a Chennai Super Kings wicket. The other major colour to be seen on the day was yellow, associated with the Super Kings.
