The coveted tournament was kicked off by the said two units and will be concluded by them as well. The Lankan Lions defeated the Green Shirts by a narrow margin of 12 runs in the opener mainly because of a superb ton by Lahiru Thirimanne followed by a hostile bowling spell by the speedster Lasith Malinga. The Islanders hammered 6-296 in the allotted 50 overs and the Green Shirts were bowled out for 284 with seven balls to spare. The final will be another thriller since both teams will go for their supremacy but the one who plays well on the day will lift the trophy.

Players to watch

Kumar Sangakkara is the highest run scorer in the tournament with 248 at an excellent average of 62.00 comprising 1 hundred and 2 fifties and will play an important role. Mahela Jayawardene can wake up from a sound sleep whereas Angelo Mathews is the back bone of their middle order batting and Laisth Malinga will be a threat again for the rival team.

The star opener, Ahmed Shehzad, is in great form and will be a treat to watch whereas a sterling knock from his skipper, Misbah-ul-Haq is on the cards. Shahid Afridi is in a dangerous mood and won the previous two games for Pakistan whereas Saeed Ajmal will be difficult to handle.
