West Indies teams is always regarded to have some ups and downs regularly. The ICC World Twenty20 seems to be at up level for them. They had a great start with their captain hitting hard for the comprehensive victory over the Aussie. Meanwhile, est Indies have defeatedEngland and India in 2nd round league stage. Their batting is proving to get stronger with the captain starting from the front. Some young hands of Simmons and Fletcher are proving that west Indies youngsters are capable for change. The experience of Chanderpaul and Sarwan in the middle order is another weapon of West Indies. The most important thing is that their all-rounder Dwaryne Bravo is in great form. When he is in great form he and turn the match with either bowling or batting. Talking about the bowling attack, lots was expected from the spinners like Gayle and Benn but they were little short of expectations. Pace-attack is doing a important job, picking early wickets in the first six overs.

The only unbeaten team in T20 World Cup 2009, Sri Lanka is regarded as the favorite for the cup. But this is semi-final and one mistake can send you out. Looking best in paper, the Sri Lankan squad is best till now in the tournament. The variety f playes in the squa are capable of bending the others neck. Firstly, the most favourable player of tournament, TM Dilsan is in a great Knick. His fellow opening patner the old Sanath Jayasuriya is having decent tournament and everyone knows he is always good in pressure situation. Captain Sangakkara has captained the side very well but it seems he is getting runs on ther side but not much of magical innings. Jayawardene's form seemed to have troubled before 2 matches but now he is the key player and if he gets going no-one knows. Silva is the matter of concern for the team and the team will think if playing him or dropping in the important match like this. Mubarak has turned on as a finisher and still his job will be the same if the top order fires again. The 3M facor in bowling i.e., Murali, Mendis and Malinga will be another key factor to open the lock.

All togethr both the sides looks properly balanced and i find the difference is that the spin-attack. Sri Lanka are raised high by thier spin-attack but west Indies spin-attack is not as much as expected. The most common thing is the opener and left-handed batsmans, the great hitters of cricket ball Chris Gayle and Sanath Jayasuriya. Tilakratne Dilsan's batting can be compared to the Bravo's batting. And the two shringers Edwards and Malinga would be the another interesting factor to watch because its all for fun. No matter who wins but the great competition will be mustly expected between this two teams. But its the matter for the captainsto go the toss on the final. Another thing is that Pakistan will be watching carefully to the upcoming opponent. BEST WISHES FOR BOTH THE TEAMS.
