Virat Kohli has been playing for RCB since the inception of the IPL in 2008

Noted RCB players and cricket analysts had expressed concern after RCB's social media handles went blank on Wednesday evening, including Twitter and Facebook.

Those actions drew surprised reactions not only from the fans but also from their star cricketers like captain Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers.

The new logo is bolder with a red backdrop, golden lion and team's name in black.

Virat Kohli, who leads Royal Challengers Bangalore, was shocked after the franchise removed their profile picture and posts from various social media accounts. In the end, the mystery got solved on Friday, as they revealed their new logo which features a lion.

Indian Premier League side Royal Challengers Bangalore released its new logo ahead of the start of the new edition of the tournament, but India's fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah didn't spare to have their moment and trolled them.

There was intense speculation that the team will change its name from Royal Challengers Bangalore to Royal Challengers Bengaluru to suit the local taste and they may also unveil a new team jersey but both remained just that - a speculation.

RCB's chairman, Sanjeev Churiwala, while addressing the media said: "The elements in the logo is a commitment to continuously entertain and engage with fans who are the force behind Royal Challengers Bangalore".

"Presenting to you, the RCB Jersey design for Vivo IPL 2020".

That said the new logo that the RCB unveiled on Friday has not gone down well with the fans. It embodies the Bold pride and challenger spirit that our players bring to the field.

RCB would hope that the "new look" side can mount a title challenge in IPL 2020 and break their miserable run of form in the competition.
