FOUR CAPTAINS got a chance to hold onto the two ICC World Twenty20 trophies at Kensington Oval yesterday.

Only two of them will have that privilege tonight after the finals of the third edition of the tournament is played out.

The men’s showdown brings together awesome Australia and impressive England at 11:30 a.m.At 4 p.m., it will be the women’s battle between Trans Tasman rivals Australia and New Zealand.

On the evidence of earlier matches in the tournament, both finals should be highly competitive.
