Sri Lanka Cricket, together with MAS Holdings launched the new attire for team Sri Lanka at a grand ceremony held earlier this week. MAS Holdings will be the official clothing partner for the mens and womens national cricket teams for the next three years.
MAS, who already shelter hundreds of national sporting greats who have represented Sri Lanka in over 20 different sporting disciplines, is proud for being a valuable partner of Sri Lanka Cricket.
Commencing with the attire for the ICC World Cup T20 kicking off next week, MAS Holdings will gear the national men’s team, women’s team and A team, U-19 team and junior national teams. The total outfitting solution will consist of all game day clothing for Test, ODI and T20 matches including performance base layer innerwear, sweaters, head wear as well as practice kits and track suits.
The new uniforms of the cricket team were created to enhance performance whilst providing the players with the most comfortable garments, incorporating futuristic design elements and modern technological advancements. The sublimated yellow print on the front of the garment not only celebrates national pride, but also portrays the energy and confidence of the team with futuristic appeal. Thus, symbolizing the complete image that Sri Lanka cricket desires to represent at the T20 World Cup and beyond.
The performance enhancing fabric, chosen for these garments with its close knit mesh structure, provides comfort and ventilation for the players, and is inherent with moisture management and anti-bacterial properties to channel the perspiration out and keep the body dry.
