Live streaming of the final of ICC T20 World Cup 2012 between Sri Lanka and West Indies at R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo.
West Indies won the toss and elected to bat first against the hosts Sri Lanka.
West Indies have retained the same playing eleven while Sri Lanka have replaced Rangana Herath with Akila Dananjaya.
Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene said, “We would have liked to bat first too but maybe it is a good toss to lose in the big game. Akila is in for Rangana Herath. It was a tough call. We are very excited.”
West Indies captain Darren Sammy said, “We are going to bat first. We bat well and it gives us a good chance here.
“The pitch is similar to the one we played against Australia. We are playing the same team.
“It is Dwayne Bravo’s birthday today and I would like to wish him now. Hopefully we come out on top.”
