to
front
line
heroes,
to

Give
India
Foundation
to
provide
around
100
units

Since

RCB’s
parent
company,
Diageo

manufactured

distributed
3
lakh
litres

Indians.

The

will
then
shift

will
face

and
that
is
when
Kohli
and
co
will
sport
the
special
blue
jersey
to
show
their
support
for
the
frontline
