India v Sri Lanka (Final – Sunday, 14:00, Sky Sports 2)

Mahela Jayawardene Top Sri Lanka Batsman @ 4/1 – BET NOW

India have been the best team in the tournament and are rightly 8/11 favourites to win their first ICC World Twenty20 since 2007. Virat Kohli is averaging 121 and another master-class in the semi-final saw them past South Africa, but 3/1 is probably short enough on him in the top India batsman market considering the likes of Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane and Shikhar Dhawan are all potential match-winners as well. I tipped Sri Lanka to win the tournament at 7/1 and they were perhaps slightly fortunate to beat West Indies courtesy of Duckworth/Lewis in the semi-final. Sri Lankan legends Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara are retiring from international T20 after the game and while they may not capture their first World T20 title for a perfect send-off, I quite fancy the former to top score for his country at 4/1. Admittedly he was run out for a duck in the semi-final but top scored in the group stages against New Zealand and England and his experience will be vital.
