Even as fugitive absconder Vijay Mallya nervously awaits the UK High Court's order on his appeal against extradition to India, the once 'King Of Good Times' has managed to find the time to comment on the logo change of his once-charge. IPL side Royal Challengers Bangalore. RCB had taken everyone, including skipper Virat Kohli, by surprise as they disappeared off social media in a flash, only to reveal that they were coming back with a makeover. RCB took to their official handles to gift their fans the perfect Valentine's Day gift - a new logo, a new jersey and as they claim a new decade and a new team. While RCB's former owner Vijay Mallya did not have an enthusiastic response to the team's new logo, he did have a message for the side that has not lifted the trophy yet - to gun for it.
