Cricket T20 World Cup 2014: Sri Lankan greats face final curtain in T20 final
For two of the greatest modern players, today's World Twenty20 final probably represents a final shot at a trophy. Both Mahela Jayawardene (609 international matches) and Kumar Sangakkara (546) will retire from the shortest form of the game after Sri Lanka's match with India.
If Sri Lanka prevail there will hardly be a dry eye in the house, but India look too strong, with their batsmen, led by Virat Kohli, in prodigious form. Dinesh Chandimal, Sri Lanka's captain, took a bold step in stepping down from the semi-final, and he will be absent again today.
