Just 1 game is remaining for all sides, and 4 semi-finalists still need to be confirmed, from which one can understand how difficult this short-over format is. England will face Sri Lanka in the 39th fixture of the T20 World Cup at Sydney Cricket Ground to book their ticket to the semi-final.
With 2 wins and 1 defeat from the 4 matches played in Super 12, England are in 2nd place in Group 1 with 5 points. The team’s 1 match went as resultless due to the rain and was awarded 1 point. Sri Lanka registered 2 wins and was defeated in 2 games to be in the 4th place in the same group with 4 points.
It will be a knockout game for the Srilankan unit, whereas a win for England will confirm their spot in the semis after considering the run rate factor of others in the group. English captain Joss Buttler is back in form during the last game against the Kiwis and up for the challenge of the Srilankan spin duo of Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva- Maheesh Theekshana on Sydney’s pitch.
After an unfortunate defeat due to the rain against Ireland, England made a statement in the last game against New Zealand. Now one last time in super 12, they will face Sri Lanka and will be looking forward to confirming the spot in the top 2 of group 1.
Joss Buttler decided to bat first in the last game against New Zealand, and both openers gave a solid start to England’s innings. Jos Buttler (who scored 73 runs from 47 balls), and Alex Hales (who scored 52 runs from 40 balls), put up 81 runs stand for the first wicket. Liam Livingstone added 20 runs from 14 balls to the team’s total of 179 runs in 20 overs.
Sam Curran and Mark Wood took charge of the bowling unit and gave early breakthroughs for the team while defending the target. Sam Curran picked up 2 key wickets of Finn Allen and in-formed Glenn Phillips that turned things for the English side. Chris Woakes then handled the pressure in the death overs and claimed 2 wickets, resulting in a 20 -runs win for England.
The overall squad looks balanced and has good bowling and batting order depth. Key all rounders like Moeen Ali and Ben Stokes are yet to deliver for their team, and the captain is hoping for their noteworthy performances on a bigger stage of the World Cup against Sri Lanka.

It has been a roller coaster ride for Sri Lanka in this ongoing T20 world cup. After 2 consecutive defeats against Australia and New Zealand, they registered a victory against Afghanistan in the last match. Now in the knockout game of the league, they will face England at Sydney Cricket Ground.
Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva’s crucial spell of 3 wickets for 13 runs in his 4 overs led Sri Lanka to restrict opponents to 144 runs in 20 overs. Lahiru Kumala also picked up 2 wickets with his pace. Though openers Pathum Nissanka and Kusal Mendis departed early in the innings, Dhananjaya de Silva handled the pressure while chasing the target of 145 runs.
Dhananjaya de Silva played an important knock of not out 66 runs from 42 balls, along with Bhanuka Rajapaksa, who scored 18 runs from 14 balls. These 2 knocks made things easy for the Srilankan side as they chased down the target in the 19th over, sparing 6 wickets in hand.
It's all-or-nothing for Sri Lanka when they face England in the upcoming game. There is a massive responsibility on the Srilankan pace unit to put pressure on England’s top-order batters. Also, the spinning duo of Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva and Maheesh Theekshana need to deliver if they want to beat England.

The weather will be clear on a match day, with 10-20% chances of rain. The maximum and minimum temperatures will be between 24°C - 14C.
Sydney Cricket Ground in Australia will host this match. The ground can accommodate 44,000 people and has conducted many international and domestic games.
The SCG has conducted 16 T20Is, including 5 of the ongoing T20 World Cup. All 5 matches played in this T20 World Cup were won by the team who batted first. Here the general trend is the winning captain chooses to bat first.
By looking at both squads and the form they have shown so far, England have an upper hand in the upcoming battle against Sri Lanka. England’s batting and bowling depth give them a substantial advantage against Sri Lanka, which lacks all-round options.
We predict that England will defeat Sri Lanka.
