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.

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.
