A million dollar farewell party

Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardane are loved by millions of cricket fans. They are gentle off the field but ferocious warriors on it. The ICC T20 World Cup ongoing in Dhaka, Bangladesh will be a fitting farewell to those legendary batting arms. May the best team win!!!
.....
If Mahendra Singh Dhoni's Indians win, they will become the first team to hold all three major limited-overs titles, having won the 50-over World Cup in 2011 and the Champions Trophy last year.

Sri Lanka will seek an end to an inexplicable losing streak in title matches, after being beaten twice in World Cup finals in 2007 and 2011 and the World Twenty20 finals in 2009 and 2012.

A fitting farewell to veterans Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene in their last T20 international game and a million-dollar winning bonus offered by officials back home will further inspire the Sri Lankans.
