Live Cricket Streaming : Sri Lanka vs England world T20 super 8
The defending champions England face a must-win situation as they take on unbeaten hosts Sri Lanka in a crucial Super Eight match of the ICC World Twenty20 at Pallekele today. England, after a victory and a defeat, have to battle at their best against Sri Lanka to remain in the row for making to the last-four stage. See Live Score here.
If Stuart Broad`s men lose today, it would be certain elimination for English team in case West Indies beat New Zealand earlier today. In such a case, West Indies will be through to the Semi-finals. England beat New Zealand in their previous match with the help of Steven Finn and Luke Wright. Finn achieved his as well as England`s best figures in the ICC World Twenty20 - three for 16 - before Wright hit a 43-ball 76. But the fact is that Sri Lanka is no New Zealand, and English men have to keep this in their mind before coming to the field. The probable English squad will include: Stuart Broad (c), Jonathan Bairstow, Ravi Bopara, Tim Bresnan, Danny Briggs, Jos Buttler, Jade Dernbach, Steven Finn, Alex Hales, Craig Kieswetter (wkt), Michael Lumb, Eoin Morgan, Samit Patel, Graeme Swann, Luke Wright.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka have given their best in this tournament. Mahela Jayawardene`s men played aggressively against West Indians in their last game to rush into the semifinals. In-form batsmen, disciplined bowlers, along with massive home support make the hosts a challenging team going into the knockout stage of the tournament. The bowlers have done justice in the local conditions and the islanders do look the favorites against defending champions. The likely Sri Lankan line-up will include: Mahela Jayawardene (c), Angelo Mathews, Kumar Sangakkara, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Lahiru Thirimanne, Jeevan Mendis, Dilshan Munaweera, Thisara Perera, Lasith Malinga, Nuwan Kulasekara, Rangana Herath, Ajantha Mendis, Dinesh Chandimal, Shaminda Eranga, Akhila Dhananjaya.
