Kumar Sangakkara Dubai, July 27 (IANS) Sri Lanka wicket-keeper batsman Kumar Sangakkara believes playing at home will give his side added inspiration to win the World Twenty20 in September.

Speaking to ICC Cricket 360, Sangakkara says knowledge of home conditions will give his team an added advantage.

“I think we have got some great players. Whoever makes that final squad will be the best available player to make up the combination to help us win the World Twenty20. Knowing our conditions, playing at home is going to be an added buzz and an added inspiration,” says Sangakkara.

Sangakkara thinks preparation for the tournament is going to be the key for Sri Lanka during the tournament.

“Preparation is going to be very important. Then it becomes less of a lottery and more about performing consistently. Of course, T20 changes in a matter of a couple of deliveries and an over here or there can shift momentum or you can also lose your game,” he says.
