Indian captain Kohli will be attending the match as a show of support for the Gaurs as well as to extend his heartfelt support to the launch of the foundation. "The change in jersey is a symbolic representation of the whole club showing solidarity and pledging our continued support to creating an ecosystem. This is a unique venture for us and I am extremely happy to be a part of this journey," Kohli said.

"With the help of the Foundation, we hope to inspire more children irrespective of gender to take support and train and groom them into through professionals. He urged the parents and children that they should look for the opportunity to embrace," he added.
