GT vs SRH: Hardik Pandya confirmed the reason behind Lavender Jersey during the toss

GT players were spotted wearing a new kit. They weren’t wearing the usual jersey that they have been wearing for the season so far. Later, it was confirmed as it has been to raise awareness about cancer. Lavender is usually the colour for oesophageal cancer, but it is now used for all kinds of cancer.

GT aren’t the first IPL side to pull off the Lavender jersey. In 2015, Delhi Capitals had taken the same initiative led by former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh, a cancer survivor himself, and another member of the side who had set up a non-profit organisation named YouWeCan Foundation that works with cancer patients.

“Yeah, it is a special initiative to support cancer patients,” GT skipper Hardik explained at the toss where Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Aiden Markram decided to bowl first.

SRH made only one change to their playing XI for the do-or-die game – Marco Jansen in for Glenn Phillips. GT, on the other hand, made three changes in the match. Shanaka made his debut while Sudharsan is back in the place of Vijay Shankar. Vijay Shankar sustained an injury during practice. Yash Dayal is also back. This is his first appearance after the KKR match, in which Rinku Singh smashed him five sixes in an over.
