Malinga to lead the team India under pressure; says Arjuna.
Sri Lanka face a daunting test of nerves from dominant India in today's all-Asian World T20 final in Dhaka that is rich with incentives for both teams
Lasith Malinga will captain the side today and stated that players are determined to win the World T 20 championship.
Lasith Malinga says that Virat Kohli is a great batsman but they have the bowlers who can bowl that one good delivery, which can dismiss even the greatest.
Meanwhile former Sri lanka Captain Arjuna Ranathunga states that Indians are under pressure coming into the final.
If Mahendra Singh Dhoni's team win, they will become the first team to hold all 3 major limited-overs titles, having won the 50-over World Cup in 2011 and the Champions Trophy last year.
Sri Lanka will seek an end to an inexplicable losing streak in title matches, after being beaten twice in World Cup finals in 2007 and 2011 and the World T20 finals in 2009 and 2012.
However, Sri Lanka's English coach Paul Farbrace said past results counted for little in T20 games and pointed to his team's victory in the Asia Cup one-day tournament in Dhaka last month as a turning point.
