Mathews: 'I thought we were good with the ball and in the field. We worked out on our plans and the early wicket of Gayle was the key. We have the attack for all conditions with a couple of mystery spinners adding to the pacers. We back ourselves to chase this target down.'
Excellent effort from Sri Lanka in the field. The start was outstanding with Charles and Gayle being kept in check. Frustration boiled over and both batsmen threw their wickets away. WI scored just 20 runs in the PP, the lowest of the tournament. Samuels and Bravo repaired the early damage with the former scoring a fifty, there was some late flurry from Russell but one would feel that WI have ended up with a less then par score. Join us in a short while for the chase.
Narine: 'We want to bowl in the right areas and let the batsmen make the mistakes. We have worked hard on our fielding and hopefully the results will show for themselves.'
West Indies (Playing XI): Johnson Charles, Chris Gayle, Marlon Samuels, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, Darren Sammy(c), Andre Russell, Denesh Ramdin(w), Sunil Narine, Ravi Rampaul, Fidel Edwards
Sri Lanka (Playing XI): Mahela Jayawardene(c), Tillakaratne Dilshan, Kumar Sangakkara(w), Jeevan Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Thisara Perera, Lahiru Thirimanne, Nuwan Kulasekara, Rangana Herath, Lasith Malinga, Ajantha Mendis
Mahela: 'We would have batted first as well, but the wicket is holding up well. We will look to do well in this match, unfortunately Dananjaya is not fit, he has a small fracture, we want to give him some time to recover. Rangana Herath will replace him.'
Sammy: 'We will bat. We played on this pitch in the last game and we will look to defend a score. Just one change, Edwards is back in place of Badree.'
West Indies have won the toss and elected to bat
Hello everyone. A big game tonight between the hosts and one of the favorites. As Luke Wright showed us, the track is still very good for batting. There will be something on offer for both spinners and pacers alike. The duel between Gayle and co against the Sri Lankan spinners is already very intriguing. Stay tuned as we bring you the toss and other updates. If Sri Lanka lose this game then New Zealand are out of the tournament. Guess the Kiwis will stay back to cheer the hosts.
Unsurprisingly, England's green (not to mention KP-free) batting order has been the problem.
Stuart Broad was explicit in blaming the batsmen after the failure to chase 180 against West Indies and first-over performances of 0 for 1, 2 for 1 and 0 for 2 in their three games have given England more of a stop than a start.
If they can get through the first six balls, one crumb of comfort may be the fact that New Zealand's slow bowlers are of the orthodox finger-spin variety.
For New Zealand, the challenge is to convert the disappointment of two close defeats into match-winning momentum. The Black Caps are often dark horses but they have still tended to fall before the final fence.
Their only T20I win against England came during the inaugural World Twenty20 in 2007, when they progressed to the semi-finals; the teams also met in the 2010 Super Eights, when England went on to lift the trophy. Of those two precedents, a repeat of the former looks more likely than the latter.
