  • England simply had to beat New Zealand to keep their tournament hopes alive and did just that, overcoming the Black Caps by 20 runs after their score of 179/6 proved sufficient as they restricted New Zealand to 159/6 in response.
  • Captain Jos Buttler played one of his most crucial knocks for England and easily his best since being named white ball skipper, crashing 73 from 47 balls, whilst fellow opener Alex Hales responded to the pressure upon him by making a very welcome half-century.


  • Sri Lanka remain in the hunt for a place in the semi-finals, but a poor net-run-rate means that they are likely to need a sizeable victory over England If they are to make it, with the expectation that both Australia and New Zealand will win their final ‘Super 12’ fixtures against Afghanistan and Ireland respectively.
  • This encounter boasts an intriguing side-story as Sri Lanka head coach Chris Silverwood goes up against his former employers, who sacked him following their 4-0 Ashes humiliation in Australia at the start of the year.


Sri Lanka most likely needing to win this one by a significant margin may well play into England’s hands, especially their bowlers who will look to prioritise accuracy to try to break the spine of Sri Lanka’s top order with early wickets regardless of whether they are bowling first or second. After a slow start, it feels like England are starting to find their feet, as shown in what was an excellent all-round performance against New Zealand. Provided they replicate those levels with both bat and ball in this contest, then Buttler’s men will be expected to wind up too strong for Sri Lanka.
