Confident Group has been named the main sponsor of Sri Lanka’s men’s and women’s national teams for the event. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Sidath Wettimuny, chairman of Sri Lanka Cricket, said: “I believe that the Confident Group will continue to maintain its interest in this island nation with continued partnerships with SLC.”
