All the four teams in the men’s and women’s ICC World Twenty20 finals Sunday are expected to wear black armbands as a mark of respect to the victims of the horrifying flyover tragedy that killed 24 people.

“We have requested the teams to wear black armbands,” said Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president Sourav Ganguly.

Twenty four people were killed and several others critically injured after an unfinished flyover collapsed in North Kolkata near Ganesh Talkies.

There will also be a cultural programme including a tabla performance by Bickram Ghosh, a dance by Tanushree Shankar and sitar performance by the duo of Amaan Ali Khan and Ayaan Ali Khan.

West Indies will be eyeing a double with the women’s team taking on Australia and the men’s team facing England in the final.
