An unwavering supporter of Sri Lanka Cricket, Daraz have cemented their role as the Official Overseas Team Sponsor of Sri Lanka Cricket for 2021.
Powered by Daraz, the Sri Lankan Cricket team will kick-off the first of its 3 ODI fixtures on the 2nd of September 2021 at the R. Premadasa Stadium.

Through their unending support of the Sri Lankan Cricket Team, Daraz stands firmly in support of the Sri Lankan people that so ardently preserve the love of the game.
