New Delhi :
An outstanding game between Sri Lanka and England. England held their nerve against some audacious Sri Lankan strokeplay, mostly from Mathews whose 73 was made off one leg. They got themselves very, very close; but two brilliant overs from Jordan and Stokes snuffed out Sri Lanka's fire to beat them by just 10 runs. With the way England qualify for the semis.
Good effort by England as they post 171 runs and thanks largely to Buttler's 66 from 37. England scored 72 from the last 5 overs - which is quite a comeback from where they were earlier against Sri Lanka in ICC T20 World Cup 2016 at Kotla.
Three teams are queuing for one available spot for semis in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2016. West Indies qualified for the knockouts and it will be fight between Sri Lanka, South Africa and England. This is a great game for the neutral.
Alex Hales comes in for Vince in England Kulasekara is replaced by Dasun Shanaka in Sri Lanka. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka have won the toss and decided to bowl first at Kotla.
