Jayawardene stands down after Windies defeat


Sri Lanka skipper Mahela Jayawardene has stood down after his sides 36 run defeat against the West Indies in the final of the t20 World Cup at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.

"It is not a surprise but I had a chat to the selectors before this tournament started. I was going to step down from T20 captaincy after this World Cup," said Jayawardene.

"I personally feel that for Sri Lanka going forward, I think we need a younger leader. It's a great opportunity for somebody to start in that T20 format," he added.
