The Redskins Cheerleaders will create the first-ever cheerleading squad for the Royal Challengers Bangalore, part of the new Indian Premier League (IPL) .
The Royal Challengers cricket franchise is owned by Dr. Vijay Mallya, through his company Royal Challengers sports private limited–a 100 percent subsidiary of United Spirits Limited.
Cheerleaders in cricket is a new concept in India, although teams from South Africa and Australia have had cricket cheerleaders.
12 cheerleaders and two choreographers will spend 18 days touring the country and performing at major events, and to cheer at the first four games on the Royal Challengers.
The group will perform a mix of Bollywood and American hip-hop moves.
