Colombo: The Sri Lankan team will be handed a million dollar bonus if they can shake off their reputation as chokers in the final of the ICC World Twenty20 this weekend, the country's cricket board announced on Friday.

The day after the players won a rain-affected semi-final against the West Indies, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said it would treble the money it had previously promised if they return home from Bangladesh with the trophy.

"The Executive Committee of SLC which met at an emergency meeting this morning decided to offer $ 1.5 million (including the original fee of $500,000) to the national team players in the event that they win the final," the board said in a statement.
