The world’s Number One sports brand, ‘adidas’, felicitated its Brand Ambassador Lasith Malinga on becoming the first ever bowler in the world to get three hat tricks in the history of One Day Internationals.
He was felicitated at the ‘adidas’ Performance Centre at Rajagiriya, the very next day after he achieved this historic feat.
‘adidas’ Brand Manager Leroy J. Ebert said, “adidas is very proud of Lasith Malinga and his trail blazing achievements on the pitch. An unorthodox right hand fast bowler, he is easily one of Sri Lanka’s top world class bowlers and spends a very long time, or even several days, either in the nets, on the pitch or at vigorous training. Malinga continuously stands, runs, jogs and is active at all times, and ‘adidas’ footwear and apparels protect him from injury, and most importantly, enhance his performance.”
Malinga who sports exclusive ‘adidas’ during training says, “I am happy to be part of the adidas exclusive global family and I am pleased that my achievements have been recognised in this manner. ‘adidas’ does go a step further and complements my technicality and fitness levels with technologically advanced and performance-driven footwear.”
