Sri Lanka Wins Against West Indies to Enter World T20 Final

Finally we have got to know one of the two teams who will be playing the World T20 final. Sri Lanka has beaten West Indies in the first Semi final and they will be now playing the final of this fascinating T20 cup. Who will be the second team? It will be the India or South Africa as they both will be playing the second Semi-Final of this World T20 Cup.

This World T20 Cup has been a superb one and spinners have dominated it. Sri Lanka deserved to be in the final of World T20 Cup as they have good spinners as well as Malinga who can destroy any team with his fast bowling.

Sri Lanka team batting first were able to put up 160 Runs for 6 wickets even if Jayawardane and Sangakkara failed. We all know that Sangakkara and Jayawardane will be retiring from International T20 cricket after this T20 World Cup. This good score was put up on the board because of Angelo Mathews and Thirimanne who scored 40 and 45 runs respectively in this wonderful first Semi Final.

West Indies deserved to win this match but because of Duckworth-Lewis system and bad performance by the openers they lost the match. Chris Gayle and Dwayne Smith both failed in this Semi final match and this was all because of Malinga. Lasith Malina got both of them out and if they had not failed, West Indies could have won the match.

Wickets matter according to Duckworth-Lewis system. When the rain started West Indies were struggling at 80 runs and they had lost 4 wickets. The par score according to this system should have been 107 runs and that's why West Indies lost the match. 80 is really a low score as they had already played 13.5 overs. This shows that West Indies failed were playing very slowly which shows how good Sri Lanka's bowlers performed.

Now everyone will be eager to watch Live telecast of the second Semi-Final between India and South Africa. The one who wins the second Semi Final will have to face Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka has a very good bowling attack and that's why the final of T20 World Cup will be the most interesting one.
