Nippon Paint Lanka (Pvt) Limited was appointed Associated Gold Sponsor of the Pakistan tour of Sri Lanka. The Pakistan team will play two tests matches in Galle and in Colombo. The five-day test in Galle will be from 16th – 20th July, while the test match at Khettarama in Colombo will be from 24th – 28th July. Sri Lanka has already named an 18-member squad for the test series with Dimuth Karunaratne as captain.
“For us at Nippon Paint Lanka, it is a privilege to be the Associated Gold Sponsor of the current Pakistan tour. This tour is being keenly watched by cricket enthusiasts both here and abroad after Sri Lanka rose to third place on the ICC Test Rankings with the win against Australia earlier this month. We are looking forward to Sri Lanka improving further and we stand ready to support our players even more as we go forward.”
