    Live updates from the final of the Celkon Mobile Cup between India and Sri Lanka to be played at the Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad.

    Preview: India began the tournament jet-lagged, suffered two consecutive defeats and looked almost out of contention.

    Stand-in skipper in the last two matches, Virat Kohli broke the news of Dhoni in with a shout to feature in the final. He played football ahead of the match and sprinted around a bit, giving enough indications of having his hamstring nice and loose. So that's a big plus India have in build-up to the final. Should Dhoni play, which is still uncertain, Sri Lanka will have an additional threat to deal with.
