Colombo: Oct 7, 2012

 

Sri Lanka will be desperate for ICC World T20 glory when they take on the dangerous West Indies in the final of the tournament at R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Sunday.

 

Chris Gayle’s performance may be a determining factor when the dominating hosts clash with an upbeat West Indies.

 

The hosts will be aiming to win their second world title after a gap of 16 years as their first and only World trophy came in 1996, while the Caribbean side are playing a World event final after nearly 30 years, having last played against India at the Lord’s in 1983.

 

Sri Lanka should be favourites not only because of home conditions but also due to the variety of players from Mahela Jayawardene, Kumar Sangakkara to Thisara Perera who can change their game according to the needs.

 

The West Indies on the other hand have some very competent T20 players in Marlon Samuels, Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard but all of them love to rally around Gayle who is the pivotal force in this Caribbean set-up.

 

Darren Sammy and his bunch of brave-hearts know that Gayle’s performance will be key in the outcome of the match.

 

Teams:

 

Sri Lanka: Mahela Jayawardene(c), Tillakaratne Dilshan, Kumar Sangakkara (wk), Jeevan Mendis, Thisara Perera, Angelo Mathews, Lahiru Thirimanne, Nuwan Kulasekara, Ajantha Mendis, Akila Dananjaya Perera, Lasith Malinga

 

West Indies: Johnson Charles, Chris Gayle, Marlon Samuels, Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Darren Sammy(c), Sunil Narine, Ravi Rampaul, Samuel Badree
