Video - Triumphant Return Home For Sri Lanka

Watch as ICC World Twenty20 champions Sri Lanka arrive in Colombo following their return from Bangladesh, where they beat India to lift the trophy.

The six-wicket win put behind them a run of four successive global final defeats and they were celebrated as heroes by the crowds.

They then attended a news conference where captain Lasith Malinga said his team were deserved victors on the day.

"First of all I have to say, I never believe in luck," he said.

"We got this only because of our team work and dedication. We didn't had any big plans for India."

He added that his experience in the Indian Premier League helped him combat India's powerful batting line-up.

"I was very happy when the Indian team reached the final because I have played in the IPL (Indian Premier League) for around six years. I know every single Indian player."
