Colombo: Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene says the familiarity of home conditions and a "fanatic" crowd support means his team deserves to be favorites when the World Twenty20 starts later this month.

Jayawardene said on Monday that prolific batsman Kumar Sangakkara and leading seam bowler Nuwan Kulasekarara are recovering well from injuries.

Sri Lanka opens the 12-team competition against Zimbabwe on September 18.
