England can seal their place in the semi-finals of the Super 10 stage of the World T20 by beating Sri Lanka in Delhi on 25 March. After being overpowered by a Chris Gayle batting masterclass in their first match, Eoin Morgan's side have bounced back with unconvincing wins against South Africa and Afghanistan. The 2012 World T20 champions need to beat Sri Lanka to stand a chance of progressing to the last four stage of the tournament.

England lost by nine runs the last time they faced Sri Lanka in a T20 but are backed at 1/2 by Betfair to beat the islanders. Sri Lanka's campaign was rocked before it got underway by Lasith Malinga's injury. Angelo Mathews's side were crushed by West Indies in their last match and are priced at 2/1 to bounce back against England.

Joe Root was run out for 12 against Afghanistan, but is 10/3 to top score with the bat for England. Morgan suffered the ignominy of being bowled for a golden duck in that match and is placed at 5/1 to top the run charts.

Veteran opener Tillakaratne Dilshan is at 3/1 to top score for Sri Lanka.
