WT20 Final

World Twenty20 Final: India vs Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka 2014 Champions

Sri Lanka finally broke their World T20 jinx to finish champions, chasing down India's modest score of 130 for 4. Sri Lanka were beaten in the 2007 and 2011 World Cup finals and the 2009 and 2012 World T20 finals. Despite a belligerent 77 by Virat Kohli, India couldn't accelerate the score in the final overs due to Yuvraj’ Singh'’s excruciatingly slow innings of 11 off 21. The last four overs were a calamity for India as Kohli faced just eight deliveries and India scored only 19 runs. Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni came in with only 11 deliveries left and found it difficult to accelerate the pace of scoring.

Man of the Match Kumar Sangakkara become the fourth player after Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting and Jacques Kallis to score 25,000 international runs during the 35-ball 52 - his last T20. Virat Kohli won the World Twenty20 player of the tournament award for his 319 runs - including innings of 36 not out against Pakistan, 54 against the West Indies, 57 not out against Bangladesh, 23 against Australia and a match-winning 72 not out against South Africa in the semi-final.

Reported Earlier: Covers on at Mirpur stadium, and the final of the ICC World T20 between India and Sri Lanka is likely to be delayed because of steady rainfall.

India XI: MS Dhoni (Captain & Wicket Keeper), Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Amit Mishra, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohit Sharma

WT20 Final - Sri Lanka 132/4 in 17.5 ov (Sangakkara 52*) beat India 130/4 in 20 ov (Kohli 77, Rohit 29) by 6 wickets with 13 balls remaining

India on the cusp of record treble

World ODI Champions India is looking to seal an unprecedented limited-overs treble when they meet Sri Lanka in Sunday's World Twenty20 final. After winning the 2011 50-over World Cup final in Mumbai - when Sachin Tendulkar was still part of the Indian team - MS Dhoni led India to Champions Trophy glory in England two years later. They now stand just one match away from becoming the first country to hold three major titles at the same time. Meanwhile, this will be the last game in the shortest format for Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara.

Reported earlier: South Africa won the toss and elected to bat first against India. Faf du Plessis comes in for Farhaan Behardien for South Africa while Team India remain unchanged from their last match. Shikhar Dhawan and Mohammed Shami remain out of playing XI as Ajinkya Rahane and Mohit Sharma stays in the team. The first semi-final was disrupted due to rain and hailstorm, which resulted in a 27-run victory by D/L method for Sri Lanka, and the weather forecast for tonight predicts heavy rain once again.

Semi Final 1, Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, Mirpur

Rain dashes Windies hopes, Sri Lanka in final

In Dhaka, Sri Lanka made 160 for six, and the rain and hail which stopped play when West Indies were on 80/4 from 13.5 overs made sure the Lankans progressed to Sunday's final with a 27-run Duckworth-Lewis victory. The win was sweet revenge for Sri Lanka who lost the 2012 final to the West Indies in Colombo. Sri Lanka had raced to 41 in the fourth over thanks to Dilshan and Kusal Perera, before they lost three wickets in the space of 15 balls. Jayawardene was run out without facing a single ball. Dilshan made a run-a-ball 39 before he ran himself out.

Reported earlier: Lasith Malinga, who skippered the team in Sri Lanka's last group match against New Zealand, will captain the team in the absence of their first-choice skipper Dinesh Chandima. All eyes will be on Rangana Herath, whose scintillating figures of 5/3 against New Zealand in their final group stage match propelled the islanders into the semis.

Sri Lanka XI: Kusal Perera, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Mahela Jayawardene, Kumar Sangakkara (Wicket Keeper), Angelo Mathews, Lahiru Thirimanne, Nuwan Kulasekara, Sachithra Senanayake, Seekkuge Prasanna, Rangana Herath, Lasith Malinga (Captain)

Magnificent Dhoni takes India home

With 15 to get off the last over, and only one wicket remaining, Dhoni, who was struggling throughout the innings, hit a 6, 4 and a 6 after missing out on the first ball from Shaminda Eranga to take India home. His innings was reminiscent of the one he played at the Wankhede stadium where he struck an unbeaten 91 against Sri Lanka in the World Cup 2011 final.Final 22 balls: [Balls Dhoni faced in Blue, Balls Ishant faced in Green] (21 to win/24 balls:) 1 W . . 1 . | (19 to win/18 balls:) . . . 2 . . | (17 to win/12 balls:) . . . 2 . . | (15 to win/6 balls:) . 6 4 6Sri Lanka collapsed from a strong position of 171/2 to 201 all out, leaving India a seemingly easy road to the tri-series title. They lost their two openers to Bhuvneshwar Kumar but a 122-run stand for the third wicket by Lahiru Thirimanne (46) and Kumar Sangakkara (71) put them on course for a massive total. However they lost their last eight for just 29 runs, as Ravindra Jadeja took 4 for 23. Ishant Sharma and Ashwin took 2 wickets each.

Reported earlier: Sri Lanka and India are set to face each other in a repeat of the Champions Trophy semi-final.
