Deccan chargers IPL 1 jersey was the best ........ And the reason the IPL shirts do not have logos like tigers and stuff cos there would be no place for the advertisers to use and IPL teams cant afford to loose those extra bucks

The best by far is SRH. All the others lack any decency to it! Punjab had a good colour when they first came on the seen - but now it's no better than any of the others. Pune too came up with trumps early on .. but now it's a faded blue, as is their team! The Deccan chargers of old were a good outfit too!

Blue, Red and Yellow are just horrible. There is so much design to choose from and so much out there .. why can't they use their creativity?

Rajasthan Royals have the best jersey. Royal blue, simple and pretty cool.

From functionality and appeal RCB have the worst. The quality is just as poor, evidence see the torn armpit sections on most players. And this is nothing to do with any muscular builds either.

No doubt about that Hyderabad & Chennai got the best Jersey and KKR,RCB(Both red & green)and MI got the WORST(Simply awful) jersey of this IPL.

@kc69 ..Thanks for a mornign laugh , Ur 1 Comment abt sunrisers has made me laugh like anything. Best I agree with u its Punjab. All others are ok for me except SRH. Quote Jaghera Jatt - nothing uglier on this planet than the SRH jersey

IPL teams mostly has the basic blue theme colors. The worst one is from Mumbai Indian jersey which utterly copied from Rajasthan royals color. KXIP has nothing special as they imported the logo from Arsenal. And moreover all other 8 IPL teams had changed the jerseys and the sponsor logos atleast 2-3 times. CSK is simply best of all as they have same energetic yellow color since the start of the IPL.

I would go with previous years DD & DC, RCB & MI also have a good jersey. The rest arent that intersting. @CSK fans - whats up with the CSK jersey collar!? It is a bit ridiculous looking.

@Jagheera Jatt - agree, what is with dc/srh picking awful looking color for their first year. DC picked light brown/beige color for ipl 1 & changed to dark blue next season. This year it is this weird earth clay like color? I hope they go to a dark green color like AUS or PAK or a diff shade of green like SA. No other team has it & it would be better than the current SRH team colors.
