The Sri Lankan cricket team has unveiled its T20 World Cup shirt ahead of the qualifiers. Following the conclusion of the IPL 2021, the super event will begin in the UAE and Oman. Sri Lanka's World Cup adventure begins on October 18 in Abu Dhabi, when they meet Namibia in the qualifying round.
Sri Lankan journalist Azzam Ameen shared a snapshot of Sri Lankan top-order batter Dinesh Chandimal on Twitter. Chandimal was wearing the most recent World Cup jersey. It has the typical blue and yellow colours associated with Sri Lankan jerseys, as well as some unique patterns.
Due to their poor standing in the ICC T20I team rankings, 2014 T20 World Cup champions Sri Lanka were denied direct entrance to the tournament's main phase.
Dasun Shanaka, an all-rounder, will captain Sri Lanka in the next World Cup.
Sri Lanka's World Cup team of 15 was announced lately. Dasun Shanaka will retain his position as captain after leading the island nation to a T20I series triumph against India in August. Dhananjaya De Silva, a dependable middle-order batsman, will serve as his deputy in the competition.
