The Sri Lankan team led by Kumar Sangakkara arrived here on Wednesday to play in the cricket World Cup final at the Wankhede Stadium on April 2.
Having defeated New Zealand by five wickets on Tuesday in Colombo in the first semifinal, Sri Lanka is all set to play its second successive final of the mega-event after finishing runner-up to Australia four years ago in the West Indies.
The summit clash on Saturday would be the first-ever all-Asia final in the history of the tournament.
Big prize money
The eventual winner of the flagship event of the game would be richer by $3 million, while the runner-up would take home $1.5 million out of the total prize pool of $12.52 million.
