Mahela Jayawardene believes Sri Lanka are good enough to become champions when they face the West Indies in the ICC World Twenty20 final.
Jayawardene hopes to overturn his side's poor run of luck on Sunday - Sri Lanka have been runners-up in four major finals in the last five years.
That run included a disappointing loss to India in the final of the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup.
"We were not good enough to win those finals but we believe we have the capacity to win this one and try and focus on this," the Sri Lanka captain said.
"We played good cricket to get to this place and we are looking forward to an exciting final tomorrow.
Sri Lanka booked their place in the final with a 16-run win over Pakistan on Thursday.
Jayawardene claims there is no pressure on his team despite competing in front of an expectant home crowd.
"I'm very proud to be part of this Sri Lanka team and obviously to lead the team and it gives us another opportunity as a group rather than as individuals, to do something special," he said.
"It's a proud moment for the entire country. It's been a long time for us to host a World Cup event and for the host nation to be parts of the finals.
"It's been a great couple of weeks for the entire country and the people have embraced that pretty well, they have been fantastic. For the other matches as well, they've enjoyed some really good cricket so a lot of credit goes to the whole country and how they have reacted to this World Cup."
