The Paarl Royals’ match and training kit for the inaugural SA20 has been revealed.
Like IPL franchise the Rajasthan Royals, the Paarl team’s kit is predominantly pink and admiral blue.
The design element on the front and back of the match shirt is inspired by the famous mountains of Paarl, most prominently the Paarl Rock, a huge granite rock that is formed by three rounded formations alongside it.
The training shirt is a tribute to the traditional South African clothing that is made using ‘Shweshwe’, a popular printed, dyed cotton fabric that the locals also describe as the ‘denim’ or ‘tartan’ of the country.
The fabric is originally dyed indigo and is then manufactured in a variety of different colours and printing designs typically characterised by intricate geometric patterns.
The Paarl Royals will start their SA20 campaign with a match against MI Cape Town at Newlands on Tuesday (17:30).
