Garbage turns gold for Sri Lanka cricketers

It comes in the form of the team’s latest and newest playing kit in brilliant blue and yellow made from discarded plastic bottles and polythene collected on the beach and turned into synthetic yarn from which their shirts were made.

“We can certainly be proud of this new shirt that we can show the world”, said Sri Lanka Cricket secretary Mohan de Silva in the presence of team captain Dimuth Karunaratne.

The new kit has been designed and made by Sri Lanka Cricket’s clothing partner MAS Holdings who picked up the scattered garbage on the shoreline and turned them into what is being called “world class fabric” second to none or better, from which the shirts were spun.
