World Twenty20Picture: West Indies captain Darren Sammy and Sri Lankan captain Mahela Jayawardene pose for photographers with the ICC Twenty20 Cricket World Cup trophy in Colombo.Destructive West Indies batting led by opener Chris Gayle will take on clinical Sri Lanka infront of a sell-out crowd of 35,000 at the Premadasa stadium on Sunday. Sri Lanka defeated the West Indies by nine wickets in the Super Eights, the same margin as in a practice game before the tournament. Meanwhile the highest total of 205/4 in this edition of the WT20 Cup was posted by West Indies when they beat the Aussies by 74 runs in the Semi Finals, their biggest T20 victory. Jayawardene, with 210 runs, is the fourth highest run-maker in the tournament behind Australian Shane Watson (249), Gayle (219) and Brendon McCullum of New Zealand (212), while unorthodox spinner Ajantha Mendis shares the top spot among bowlers with Shane Watson at 11 wickets apiece, followed by sling-arm fast bowler Lasith Malinga, who has eight scalps.
