Sanga banks on home advantage at ICC World T20
"I think we have got some great players. Whoever makes the final squad will be the best available players to make up the combination to help us win the ICC World Twenty20. Knowing our conditions, playing at home is going to be an added buzz and an added inspiration," he told ICC Cricket 360.
However, 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 said.
Sangakkara said he feels lucky to have played in an era in which his team has done well both home and away. "Playing two ICC Cricket World Cup finals and an ICC World Twenty20 final has been incredible," Sangakkara said.
Sri Lankan captain Mehela Jaywardena echoes Sangakkara's views as he credits the spirit in Sri Lanka team for all the success in the last decade.

More It is a day of celebration for all cricket fans across the world as master blaster Sachin Tendulkar was born on this day in 1973. It has been 6 long months since the little master's retirement. There is hardly anything left which this veteran hadn't achieved in his illustrious career. From being the highest run scorer in both forms of cricket, along with making 100 centuries or even being the first batsman who was given out by a third umpire, the list is endless. Almost every record has been in his kitty. Sachin is the role model for many and this man made it a point to exercise his franchise even on this special day.
