Teams reaching the Semi-finals of ICC World T20 2016

GROUP 1

Sri Lanka (Points 2; NRR -0.171)

Sri Lanka has two tough matches lined up against powerful teams vying for the top spot – England and South Africa. The equation in front of them is simple – win both and qualify.

Matches left:

Sri Lanka vs. England, Delhi- 26 Mar 2016

Sri Lanka vs. South Africa, Delhi- 28 Mar 2016

Probabilities:

  • If they win both their remaining games, they qualify irrespective of NRR.
  • If they beat England and miss out against South Africa, they have to rely on West Indies and Afghanistan heavily to progress further.
  • If they lose to England and prevail over the Proteas, their only chance of staying afloat is Afghanistan beating either England or West Indies.
  • If they lose both matches, they get eliminated.
