The opening Test at Galle between Sri Lanka and New Zealand is tantalizingly poised for an early finish possibly inside four days.

After a disappointing rain-affected ODI Series, Sri Lanka and New Zealand will clash against each other in whites with the First Test beginning in the Fort City of Galle on Saturday.

Sri Lanka has today named a T20I Squad and an ODI Squad for its upcoming home series against New Zealand.

Mahela Jayawardene has announced that he has resigned as the Captain of the Sri Lanka T20 Captain following the team’s shock defeat against West Indies in yesterday’s World T20 Final.

Unlike what was expected, the World T20 in Sri Lanka did not spring up any surprise packages, i.e. talented but inexperienced players making their mark. On the contrary, it were the old hands who delivered for their respective sides, which reiterated that experience is invaluable irrespective of the game’s format.

Dashing opening batsman Virender Sehwag has stepped down from captaincy of the Delhi Daredevils. Mahela Jayawardene has replaced Sehwag as the new Delhi Daredevils Captain.

West Indies clinched the ICC World T20 2012 after outplaying hosts Sri Lanka in a one-sided contest at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. Sri Lanka needing only 138 to chase made a complete mess because of the soft approach from its top order.

Mahela Jayawardene believes that Sri Lanka has the capacity to defeat West Indies in the Final of the ICC World T20. Mahela says that his team is not thinking about the 2009 Final of the World T20 which they lost against Pakistan.

Sri Lanka and West Indies, arguably the two best teams in the competition, have made it to the summit clash. Although from here only one side will walk away with the trophy, both the teams can go away with their heads held high, irrespective of the result on Sunday.
