Captain Darren Sammy says West Indies will be looking to "spoil the party" of host nation Sri Lanka in the final of the World Twenty20.

Sri Lanka won the World Cup they co-hosted in 1996,  but captain Mahela Jayawardene said this is the "the biggest ever match in Sri Lanka".

Jayawardene will be playing his fourth major final but has yet to taste victory after losing the 2009 T20 final to Pakistan and 2007 and 2011 World Cup finals to Australia and India respectively.

As he looks to halt his side's losing run in finals, Jayawardene pointed to the advantage of local knowledge and home support.
