Ahead of the first Test against South Africa, Sri Lanka skipper Dimuth Karunaratne on Wednesday revealed the side’s new jersey for the longest format games.
Taking to Twitter Sri Lanka Cricket shared the pictures of Karunaratne donning the new-look Test jersey.
“For the first time, the Sri Lanka men’s Test team shirt will feature a large sponsor logo across the front. This temporary call was taken by the ICC as a measure to help cricket boards recover from revenue losses in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic,” SLC tweeted.
