Fans can watch the India vs. Sri Lanka cricket match live online as the teams face off for the ICC World Twenty20 championship.
India comes into the final after an unlikely win over South Africa. After being given a target of 173, the Indian bats came alive against South Africa and were led by Virat Kohli, who had a knock of 72 not out that allowed India to hit the target with five balls to spare.
“Everybody saw that the wicket was better than those we have played on, and they believed they could chase this down,” Indian captain MS Dhoni said of the team’s comeback against South Africa. “It is not just the self-belief, but the belief in each other that is crucial.”
The two finalists will now face off Sunday at 7 pm local time (1 pm GMT) from Dhaka.
Those who watch the India vs. Sri Lanka cricket match live online will see an Indian team that has regained its confidence. After difficult tours in New Zealand and South Africa followed by a poor showing in the Asia Cup, India has peaked at the right time, winning five straight games.
The team’s last loss actually came to New Zealand, during warm-up matches last month before the T20 tournament started.
But there will be more at stake for fans who watch the India vs. Sri Lanka cricket match live online. The pair of Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara will bid farewell for Sri Lanka after the match, and captain Lasith Malinga wants to send them out in style.
“It’s a special day tomorrow and we have to do something special for Mahela and Sanga,” Malinga said. “They are great cricketers and deserve a good farewell.”
