India clash with Sri Lanka in the final of the ICC World T20 2014 tournament, at the Sher-e Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka, on Sunday. Ahead of the big clash, India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has pointed to Sri Lankan spinners as the ones to watch out for.

Spinners Rangana Herath and Sachithra Senanayake have been very impressive in the tournament so far and also there would be the threat that Ajantha Mendis poses. But India are on the cusp of a momentous record and if Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s boys win the final they would become the first team to hold all three major limited overs titles, having won the 50-over ICC World Cup 2011 and the Champions Trophy win last year.

 

“Sri Lanka are a very good side and have a fantastic team. They have got the spinners that are needed on a track like this at the same time they have a good mix of young and experienced players,” Dhoni was quoted as saying by IANS.
