Sri Lanka reached the World Twenty20 final after a thunderstorm ended their semi-final against defending champions West Indies in Mirpur.

Lahiru Thirimanne made 44 and Angelo Mathews 40 from 23 balls as Sri Lanka posted 160-6 after winning the toss.

In reply, West Indies lost openers Chris Gayle and Dwayne Smith to captain Lasith Malinga in the fifth over.

Dwayne Bravo fell for 30 and after hail flooded the outfield, Sri Lanka won by 27 runs on the Duckworth/Lewis method.

Sri Lanka will meet India or South Africa, who play in Mirpur today in the final at the same venue on Sunday.
