The team paired up with Red Bull Skydiving and wingsuit athlete Dani Roman, who skydived and come down to Dubai’s One & Only Beach, Royal Mirage, to hand out their new jerseys to the RR boys.
The Spanish skydiving athlete could be seen leaping from a helicopter, several thousand feet above the Palm Islands, holding a Rajasthan Royals bag with him in the video released by the team. Flying over the players as he left a strew of smoke into the air, he parachuted it onto the beach and flung a big bag of jerseys to catch them.

“Our mornings are generally very quiet but today it turned around totally with us being asked to head to the beach for a surprise,” says David Miller.
“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, and today’s show brought back a lot of memories,” he added.
