In sublime form through thetournament, India would be aiming to become the first team towin the World Twenty20 title for a second time but a gutsy SriLanka stands in the way in what promises to an exciting summitclash between the subcontinental rivals on Sunday. While Team India will be seeking to become the firstcountry to win two World T20 titles, the team's skipperMahendra Singh Dhoni himself has a chance of walking into thepages of the record books by becoming the first captain to winthree World titles. Australia's Ricky Ponting and West Indies' Clive Lloydwere the other two captains who have led the team to twoworld titles. Life will certainly come full circle for Dhoni if helifts the coveted trophy at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium heretomorrow. In 2007, he had led a young team whom nobody gave achance, to a brilliant triumph. Since then, India became the No 1 ranked Test nation, wonthe 2011 World Cup and now they are back in World T20 finals.It started with the shortest format and it will certainlybe an enriching experience being in that zone again for MSDand his boys.
