Jaipur, 03 April 2024: Rajasthan Royals have enjoyed a steady start to the season with three victories in their first three matches of the current Indian Premier League (IPL) season. Having beaten Mumbai Indians by 6 wickets in Mumbai, the Royals returned to Jaipur on Tuesday evening, and were seen spending time visiting Sursingpura village on Wednesday afternoon as they interacted with the community members there.

The visit was organised by the franchise's social equity arm - the Royal Rajasthan Foundation - who work in the Sambhar block of Rajasthan with the vision of 'Aurat Hai Toh Bharat Hai'. Ensuring continuity in their efforts of impacting society positively with cricket as a vehicle, the Royals had earlier announced that their upcoming match against the Royal Challengers Bengaluru will be termed as the #PinkPromise match, aimed at amplifying and supporting the women-led rural transformation efforts that have been undertaken by their Foundation.

Through the game, the Royals are making a #PinkPromise to amplify and support the women-led transformation in the state of Rajasthan, and create a transformation model that can be scaled up and replicated in other parts of the country.

As part of the visit, the entire Royals squad along with their support staff was seen spending time at one of the Foundation's women beneficiaries, Mohari Devi's house at Sursingpura village. The Royals squad was greeted warmly upon their arrival and took part in a host of activities which were aimed at throwing light on the current style of living of the community, and also showcase the work that the team's Foundation has executed on ground to enable the empowered women of Rajasthan for equitable access to water, livelihoods, clean energy and mental health.

Led by their captain Sanju Samson, along with star players like Yuzvendra Chahal, Trent Boult, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Dhruv Jurel, Riyan Parag, among others, the team was seen taking part in some cooking activities - making baatis, bajra rotis and chaas. The Royals were then seen sowing small vegetable patches in the nearby locality, and also built three vermicomposting pits which will aid in better soil presence for farming. The team also enjoyed some local cuisines while conversing with the women from the Sambhar block, and presented each one of them with autographed cricket balls as mementos.
