COLOMBO: Sri Lanka won the toss and chose to bowl in the rain-hit match of the Twenty20 World Cup t Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium in Hambantota on Saturday.
Mahela Jayawardene reckons that's the best tactic in this short game.
AB de Villiers says his side is better prepared for a shorter game due to those two reduced T20s in England recently.
It is 7-overs a side, 2-over Powerplay, and two bowlers can bowl two overs and three can bowl one over.
