The Dubai Capitals, owned by the GMR Group, formally launched their jersey to be worn in the inaugural edition of the International League T20 (ILT20).
The ILT20, the latest T20 franchise cricket competition in the sport, is scheduled to be held across Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah from January 13 to February 12, 2023.
The franchise unveiled the jersey on Thursday, December 29, 2022, across all social media platforms.

The Dubai Capitals jersey sports shades of red and navy blue, the map of the city of Dubai and the prominent Dubai skyline. The red and navy blue colours on the jersey are a mainstay in the Capitals family (Delhi Capitals and India Capitals) and also exhibit the signature colours of the parent GMR Group.
Speaking about the launch of the Dubai Capitals jersey, Ajith Gopinathan Nair – Interim CEO of GMR Sports, said: "Red and Navy blue has always been sported by the Capitals, and therefore it wasn't going to be any different for the Dubai Capitals.”
“This is a very exciting time for us as the tournament is just a few days away and we wanted to get the ball rolling by unveiling our jersey for the season,” Nair added.
“We (GMR Sports) are thrilled to see the sleek design of the jersey, and we hope the players are reminded of the team's principles through their jerseys on the field," he said.
Dubai Capitals are among the six participating teams in the ILT20, besides Abu Dhabi Knight Riders, Desert Vipers, Gulf Giants, MI Emirates, and Sharjah Warriors.
Dubai Capitals, captained by Rovman Powell, will play their first game of ILT20 2023 against Abu Dhabi Knight Riders at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on January 13.
