    India v Sri Lanka, T20 World Cup 2014 Finals Today

    April 06, 2014

    Best Wishes from news.lk to the Sri Lankan team for a convincing victory.

    Sri Lanka and India battle it out for glory in the final of the 2014 T20 World Cup in Bangladesh on Sunday.

    The Lankans are in the final for the third time in the history of the T20 World Cup and have never been successful at this stage. But India have lifted the trophy once doing so during the inaugural edition in 2007.

    As players prepare for the big occasion at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka, three vital players from each team - Mahela Jayawardene, Angelo Mathews, Rangana Herath from Sri Lanka and Virat Kohli, Ravichandran Ashwin, Amit Mishra from India would dazzle the crowd with their performance en route to helping their nation lift the coveted trophy.

    Angelo Mathews - A middle-order batsman and a medium paced bowler by nature, Angelo Mathews has stepped up to help his team in times of need. Mathews' first Man of the Match performance includes a three-wicket haul against Netherlands where he conceded 16 runs in four overs collapsing the Dutch batting lineup for a total of just 39 runs.

    Mahela Jayawardene - A top order batsman for Sri Lanka who is one of the most experienced players in the lineup. He is Sri Lanka's highest scorer overall in the tournament with 134 runs from five matches, holding a strike rate of 131.37.
    Angelo Mathews - A middle-order batsman and a medium paced bowler by nature, Angelo Mathews has stepped up to help his team in times of need. Mathews' first Man of the Match performance includes a three-wicket haul against Netherlands where he conceded 16 runs in four overs collapsing the Dutch batting lineup for a total of just 39 runs.

    Rangana Herath - Having played only two matches in the ongoing T20 World Cup, Rangana Herath stormed ahead as the second highest wicket-taker for Sri Lanka with a Man of the Match performance against New Zealand in their last Super-10 fixture. Herath's contribution will be important for Sri Lanka who aim to surprise favourites India from emerging triumphant at their expense in the tournament.


    Virat Kohli - Undoubtedly the most important player in the Indian lineup, Virat Kohli has been absolutely magnificent in the tournament. The right-handed batsman gets thrilled by the targets set for him to chase and has not failed on any occasion in all the matches India have played so far.He has raced ahead as the tournament's highest run scorer with 242 runs so far with a strike rate of 128.04.

    Ravichandran Ashwin - The off-spinner who is India's highest wicket-taker in the tournament with 10 wickets to his name so far and needs three more to surpass Imran Tahir's (South Africa) tally of 12. Whether he manages to surpass Tahir's haul or not is a different question, but Ashwin's contribution with the ball will certainly play a crucial role in arresting the Sri Lankan batsmen from bolstering the numbers on the scoreboard.
    wishing for a convincing victory.

    Amit Mishra - Another spinner, but needless to say India's spin attack has seen them register a five-match winning run in the tournament so far. Amit Mishra who was recognised only by the Indian cricketing fan bases, had never appeared in a World Cup tournament in any format for his country. However, featuring in the T20 World Cup has not made him nervous in any sense.
