Sri Lanka is the home side and has a great advantage as we already seen in the Semi Final against Pakistan. But they’re also feeling home crowd pressure. West Indies played the best match of this tournament and beaten Australia comprehensively.
Sri Lanka have only lost one game in this tournament and on other hand West Indies won 3 and lost 2 matches so far. Sri Lanka have reached the ICC T20 World Cup Final for the 2nd time. Last time they reached final was in 2009 when Pakistan won by 8 wickets and became world champion in Afridi powered Innings.
West Indies have reached the final of ICC Twenty20 Cricket World Cup for 1st time in total 4 events. This match will decide the king of T20 Cricket for next 2 years. This is the match all are waiting for specially the Sri Lanka fans and West Indies fans.
Both teams have quality and big players. They also have some very popular players. Sri Lanka have little advantage of experience over West Indies side. Sri Lanka played Zimbabwe and South Africa in group stage and won against Zimbabwe and lost to South Africa.
In Super 8 stage Sri Lanka won their all three matches and thrash Pakistan in semi final brilliantly. West Indies lost their 1st match against Australia and rain interrupted their second game. They won 2 matches against England and New Zealand and lost to Sri Lanka in super 8 stage and they beat Australia in semi final with the style of Chris Gayle.
Sri Lanka looks like the favorite team to win this final. They have the quality side and experienced players like Sangakkara, Jayawardene and Dilshan. They have good fast bowlers like Malinga and Kulusekera and the spin attack in the very aggressive and powerfull including Mendis and Herath.
Their captain is also in good nick and very confident to win this big event. Sangakkara and Jayawardene are going to play their 4th world cup t20 final. They also have good All-Rounders like Mathews and Parera.
All in all a complete and inform side who is looking to win their 1st T20 tittle. After losing to South Africa, Sri Lanka look a far different side and they won their all matches after that. M Jayawardene hit most fours in this event and A Mendis is the joint leading wicket taker in this tournament with 11 wickets. If they win this tittle they will be 3rd Asian team to win this tittle as Pakistan and India won this before.
West Indies have shocked every one when they beat Australia in the Semi Final. The biggest difference and we say the biggest advantage they have is the big man Chris Gayle who has already hit most sixes in the tournament and is very close to be the top scorer in this event.
He played well when ever West Indies win. But the best thing is that K Pollard get back in form in the semi final who has failed in earlier matches of the event.
They have good spin attack with Narine and Badree. Also have quality All-Rouders like Polard and Bravo. And strong batsmen like Gayle and Samules. They reached the Final first time in 4 tournaments and the way they are playing we never know about the result.
