"The new jersey marks the celebration of the pioneering spirit of the women of Uttar Pradesh. It draws from the well of inspiration left by female icons and groups such as Rani Laxmi Bai, Sucheta Kriplani, Arundhati Bhattacharya, and the formidable Gulabi Gang. These women's stories of bravery, leadership, and resilience are the qualities mirrored in the UP Warriorz athletes," UP Warriorz's statement read.

"In the competitive cricket arena, UP Warriorz stands for both strength and compassion, striking a balance these icons have exemplified," said Jinisha Sharma, the director of Capri Sports.
