Video - Sangakkara Upstages Kohli, Jayawardene As Sri Lanka Win WT20 - Cricket World TV

In our final news update video reviewing the ICC World Twenty20 2014, we look back on the final, which saw Kumar Sangakkara inspire Sri Lanka to a six-wicket win over India.

Sangakkara and team-mate Mahela Jayawardene will retire from Twenty20 International cricket following this tournament, and his unbeaten half-century steered his side to victory.

Jayawardene made 24 and Thisara Perera 23 not out and although Virat Kohli hit 77 in 58 balls, and was later named as the player of the tournament, India came up short.

They posted 130 for four and although they defended that score manfully, Sangakkara, Jayawardene and Perera got Sri Lanka past their target with 13 balls to spare.

Perera hit the winning runs to spark joyous scenes with Sri Lanka taking a first outright global tournament win since their 1996 World Cup success (they shared the 2002 Champions Trophy with India).
