Two great teams are going to clash in the World Twenty20 match today. West Indies team will take on the defending champions Sri Lanka.
While the Sri Lankan team may be the defending champion, nonetheless they donâ€™t seem to be in the form that comes with the tag. They are a very depleted side that seem to have been badly impacted with their top batsmen. The injury ridden bowlers seem to be other huge worry for the team management at the moment.
Dilshanâ€™s return to the form may be a big source of relief for the team, but he cannot win any match single handedly for his side. He needs the support of other batsmen to give him company and then some effective bowling to restrict the opposing side for a smaller total.
Sri Lanka have been in a bad form for a very long time. They seem to be losing and losing. Nonetheless in this match today both teams come into this match on the back of wins. While Sri Lanka beat Afghanistan in their opener, the Windies were powered by Chris Gayle to a win over England in Mumbai.
In the meantime, after his exemplary knock against England in their last match, Chris Gayle seems to be on top of the world. He is excited and sharing everything with his fans on social media. Such is the obsession and admiration for himself that Gayle refers to himself as The Boss or King Gayle. A day after the King of T20 batting single-handedly destroyed the England with an unbeaten 48-ball 100 that was studded with 11 staggering sixes and five fours to guide West Indies to a four wicket win at the Wankhede, Gayle landed in Bangalore for his team’s second round World T20 encounter against Sri Lanka.Â You can go to Star Sports as they will be live streaming the game as it happens, and that is always a good way to watch.
