England face Sri Lanka in a crucial T20 World Cup showdown this weekend to wrap up Group 1 and the Super 12 stage.


Jos Buttler's men have experienced a mixed campaign so far, featuring a humbling loss to Ireland, a victory over reigning champions New Zealand and a rain-cancelled clash against Australia.

The current landscape of the chaotic group stage sees England sandwiched between New Zealand and Australia, all level on five points apiece with one round of matches to play.

The three elite teams have been kept apart in their final games, meaning a victory each would turn attention to margin of victory.

England will be wary of Sri Lanka despite being overwhelming favourites to triumph here. Sri Lanka suffered a humiliating defeat in this tournament against Namibia in the pre-Super 12 round, but remain in the hunt for a place in the knockout rounds if results fall their way.
