Mahela steps down as Lanka's T20 captain
Colombo: Mahele Jayawardene announced his decision to step down as captain of the Sri Lankan T20 team after losing the ICC World Twenty20 final. "Just one announcement guys, I have had a chat with the selectors and I have decided to step down as a captain of the Sri Lankan T20 team after the end of the tournament," Jayawardene said at the post-match press conference. "I have taken this decision so that the selection committee can groom someone younger for this job," he added.
Watson named Player of the Tournament
Colombo: Australia's Shane Watson, who scored 249 runs and took 11 wickets, was named Player of the Tournament. "(I am) thrilled for the first four matches, unfortunately the West Indies were too good in the semi-final. They were deserved winners. Sad for Sri Lanka not to win at home," he said.
