The starting of West Indies was in trouble. Angelo Mathews struck thrice in his first over. Taking the wickets of Marshall, Simmons and Bravo he couldn't believe his eyes with stumps shattering for all three wickets. Except Chris Gayle all other players had score in single digit and laid the way for victory of srilankans. Srilankan's batting, bowling and fielding are up to the mark yesterday. Angelo Mathews and muralitharan took 3 wickets and udana, malinga took one wicket each. Dishan was named as man of the match for his unbeaten 96.

The Srilankans are taking off against Pakistan in final tomorrow. To remember the Pakistani's had entered the finals in last T20 world cup also. Asian countries are successively dominating T20 Cricket for the second time. Both the teams are tough sides and the final will be hotter and unpredictable than the previous games.
