Wright explores final frontier

ICC World Twenty20 West Indies 2010

Luke Wright chatted with ECBtv after helping England reach the final

Luke Wright thinks Sunday's ICC World Twenty20 final in Barbados will be the biggest day of his career so far.

Wright played a cameo role in the semi-final win over Sri Lanka, brilliantly catching Tillakaratne Dilshan at deep square-leg as England restricted their opponents to just 128 for six.

England had no problems knocking off the total, with seven wickets and four overs remaining, and are now only one victory away from winning their first global tournament.

"It's going to be a massive day for all of us," Wright told ECBtv.

"For the guys who weren't involved in the Ashes it's one of the biggest days of their career. Everyone is excited about it without being too nervous."

England can expect strong support at the Kensington Oval, traditionally a favourite destination for their fans.

"It was brilliant, great support - there was a mass of English fans when we went through the stages there," said Wright, recalling England's Super Eight wins over Pakistan and South Africa in Barbados.

He added: "Coming into this tournament we're not just pleased to get into the final, we really think we should win this tournament.

"With the way we did win it [against Sri Lanka], it wasn't so tight, we saw it coming a while off. Everyone is really pleased and really proud but the job's not done yet."
