Team Rajasthan Royals were in for a surprise on a relaxed morning at the Royal Mirage beach resort in Dubai when they witnessed the crown prince of Skydiving and Red Bull Wingsuit Athlete Dani Roman taking twists and turns through the air at break-neck speed to reach them.
The Spanish skydiving athlete jumped out of a plane, several thousand feet above the Palm Islands, carrying with him a Rajasthan Royals bag. Flying over the awe-struck players as he left a strew of smoke through the air, he parachuted on to the beach and dropped off a bag full of Rajasthan Royals 2020 jersey for the players to grab them later.
The players excited by the thrilling official launch of their IPL 2020 jersey were able to touch, feel and of course proudly flaunt it.
Sharing his experience on this unique Rajasthan Royals jersey launch for IPL 2020 on the beaches of Dubai, all-rounder and Red Bull athlete Riyan Parag said “I was excited and expecting something crazy to happen today. Sky diving is something on my bucket list and seeing someone come down from the sky today and land with our jerseys was amazing.”
Left-handed batsman David Miller thrilled witnessing Dani Roman flying down to their beachside, said “Our mornings are generally very quiet but today it turned around totally with us being asked to head to the beach for a surprise. It was such a great view to see someone jumping off a plane and land to deliver our jerseys for the season. I have myself experienced skydiving in Dubai a couple of years back, brought back a lot of memories.”
