Sri Lanka are among the favourites to do it. They have a good all-round squad and some of this format's headline players. This is also the last tournament for their two longest-serving batsmen. Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene will retire from Twenty20 internationals at the tournament and there will be no better way than to send them off with a trophy.
1.South Africa and Sri Lanka have only played four T20 matches against each other, all in Sri Lanka. The first was at the World T20 in 2012. That fixture was reduced to seven overs a side and South Africa won by 32 runs. South Africa also won two of the other three matches.
2.Jayawardene is second on the all-time list of T20 run-scorers and Sangakkara is fourth. It's unlikely either will catch Brendon McCullum before they retire. Jayawardene is 624 runs behind and Sangakkara 648 runs off the pace.
