The 12th edition of the Cricket World Cup is knocking at the door.

This time a tremendous change in Sri Lankan jersey design has been seen. The new design includes three turtles in the sea (light blue) heading to the beach (yellow) to raise awareness of the fight against ocean pollution and the jersey looks glamorous as ever.

MAS Holdings, the Official Clothing Sponsor of Sri Lanka Cricket, have recycled plastic sea waste from the Sri Lankan coast with the help of the Sri Lankan Navy to produce the Team Jerseys.
