Team Sri Lanka is all set to host their subcontinental neighbors – India and Bangladesh – in a T20I tri-series. The series has been named as the Nidahas Trophy. The tournament will get underway on March 6 with the hosts taking on the pre-tournament favorites team India. Nidahas Trophy is a very significant one for the Sri Lanka cricket. This is not the first time that the tournament will be played.
A couple of decades ago, the Nidahas Trophy was hosted by Sri Lanka as it marked the golden jubilee celebration of the Sri Lankan independence. And now, in the year 2018, the Nidahas Trophy marks the 70th independence celebration of Sri Lanka. Certainly, the historical importance makes it a very key tournament for the hosts.
Now, in a recent development, the Sri Lankan team have unveiled their new jersey for the series. The jersey indeed looks very attractive with a new design. The design is in stark contrast to the existing jersey design of the Sri Lankan limited overs outfit. For the ones who remember the Sri Lankan jersey from the previous Nidahas Trophy, the new one would look pretty similar.
