Well what a climax to the most thrilling of matches. England are into the last four and holders Sri Lanka are out, along with South Africa. There is one berth in the semi-final left and that will be decided when Australia take on hosts India tomorrow. We will have live coverage of that game but until then, goodbye.


England are into the T20 World Cup semi-finals and will face New Zealand after a thrilling win in Delhi. Jos Buttler helps them put on 171 for 4 with the bat and despite a mesmeric 54 from Angelo Mathews some fine death bowling was enough for Eoin Morgan's side. Fabulous game, particularly after Sri Lanka were reduced to 15 for 4.


20th over Sri Lanka 161 for 8 - Just to repeat, 15 needed from six balls. Sri Lanka win, they stay in the competition, and send England home. England win, they're into a semi-final against New Zealand. Ben Stokes entrusted with the last over. The rain has come but Stokes gets a dot ball first up as Mathews picks out the fielder. They run a desperate two to keep the game alive but they need boundaries quickly to stage an unlikely comeback. Another pair comes as Mathews clips over Rashid. 11 needed from three. Yorker from Stokes and Mathews needs two maximums to win it. Mathews can't make proper contact and they don't even run. It's all over and what an over from Ben Stokes. England win by 10 runs


19th over: Sri Lanka 157 for 8 - All on Chris Jordan or Angelo Mathews now; one player will keep their team in the competition; the other will be heading home. Jordan gets the yorker in first up and Shanaka is back on strike. He opens the face and send the ball for four past Buttler, good batting it has to be said as Jordan looks convinced he had the yorker. And then a stunner from Joe Root as Shanaka looked to send the ball for four. Dot ball and a wicket for England. Herath is the new man and he will surely only go one way, and he does; bowled by Jordan from the final ball. 15 needed off the last over, Stokes to Mathews.


WICKET! Sri Lanka 157 for 8 Herath (1) b Jordan


WICKET! Sri Lanka 155 for 7: Shanaka (15) c Root b Jordan


18th over: Sri Lanka 150 for 6 - 34 needs from 18. Big over needed to keep Sri Lanka in this. David Willey, the pick of England's bowlers, is back. Shanaka yet to score and he get a bottom edge through to Buttler. He gets one from a horrid shot off the top of the bat with brings Mathews on strike. Shanaka gets six off Willey and it's back in the melting pot again. Shanaka gets four from Willey's final delivery. Stunning game this, regardless of what we get in the last two overs.


17th over: Sri Lanka 138 for 6 - 40 needed from 24. One more over of boundaries and that might do for Sri Lanka. England need wickets and how will Mathews cope with quick singles? Andrew Strauss shuffling nervously in his seat. Perera gets four out of nothing with a swing down to the vacant fine leg area but his luck runs out and he finds Willey at long off. Jordan gets another in the block hole


WICKET! Sri Lanka 137 for 6: Perera (20) c Willey b Jordan


16th over: Sri Lanka 132 for 5 - Moeen Ali in for a second over of spin and Mathews takes advantage with a six off the first ball. Another follows from the next ball and the crowd goes mad. They scamper a two with Mathews struggling to run one, let alone a second. Perera makes it three from five with a six down the ground. The over which has turned the game on its head goes for 21.


Mathews undergoing treatment on the outfield. He may now swing for the hills, if his condition does not improve in the next over or so. Sri Lanka seven runs ahead of England at the same stage of the innings.


15th over: Sri Lanka 111 for 5 - The equation is 66 from 36 balls and the wicket of Angelo Mathews holds the key to this game now. David Willey is back into the attack now and his left-arm medium pace proves hard to get away until Pereaa gets two which beats Ali. Mathews stretching out his hamstring after that last run, which is not a good sign if you're a Sri Lanka supporter. He may need treatment as he celebrates going to 50.


14th over: Sri Lanka 106 for 5 - Really fine catch from Ben Stokes to give England a much-needed wicket just as Mathews and Kapugedera threatened to take the game away from them. Perera in now and he is a danger man. He takes just two balls to get his eye in before slamming Ali over mid-wicket for six. New ball required as the hundred is brought up.


13th over: Sri Lanka 95 for 5 - Angelo Mathews is keeping Sri Lanka alive in this match, but do their fans believe? Plunkett gives them reason to with a wide first up. Kapugedera swings hard for four as the ball bounces just inside the rope. The run rate is closer to 10 an over now after closing towards 12. England hit 72 off their final five overs, can Sri Lanka go with them? Joe Root misses a run out chance with one stump to aim at with Mathews nowhere but his opposite man is gone, finding Stokes in the deep. Is that it?


WICKET! Sri Lanka 95 for 5 Kapudegera (30) c Stokes b Plunkett


12th over: Sri Lanka 88 for 4 - Mathews probably holds the last drop of hope for Sri Lanka and he sends another one over the boundary off Rashid; coming down the ground this time. How costly could that missed chance for Morgan be? Really hard to over-criticise the skipper to be honest. Now another six this time from Kapugedera as Rashid continues to be targeted. Mathews makes it three from the over and that amounts to 21 from the over. Hope for Sri Lanka?


11th over: Sri Lanka 67 for 4 - England made 106 from their last 10 overs; Sri Lanka need 113 with only six wickets left. Mathews smashes for four with a fine pull and with the field back it drops safe. Fifty for these two Mathews and Kapugudera, but can they go on? Morgan puts Mathews down as he dives up to his left, can really only be described as a half chance; would have been a wonder catch had he clung on.


10th over: Sri Lanka 59 for 4 - Nine overs in and we have our first look at spin as Adil Rashid is thrown the ball. Sri Lanka bring up their fifty and then Matthews finds the second tier with the biggest hit of the night. That is a real wallop. A few more of those might turn this game as the required run rate continues to increase.


Ninth over: Sri Lanka 49 for 4 - Mathews and Kupugedere doing a good job of making this look respectable for Sri Lanka even if their efforts of reaching the 172 target look distant. Stokes concedes just three from his second.


Eighth over: Sri Lanka 46 for 4 - Plunkett in for his third and he continues to be a thorn in the Sri Lanka side. The required rate is over 10 runs an over and it already looks like a thankless task for Sri Lanka. Kapugedera gets four over the top to end the over.


Seventh over: Sri Lanka 37 for 4 - England were 38 for 1 at this stage, and those wickets in hand allowed them to lay siege in the final six overs or so. Can't imagine for a minute that Sri Lanka had a similar game plan. Ben Stokes brings his hostility to the party with the ball now and just four comes from the over. Mathews still hanging around.


Sixth over: Sri Lanka 34 for 4 - Kapugedera paddle sweeps towards Rashid but the ball beats the England spinner, but Buttler saves the extra run on the boundary rope; you don't often see that. Plunkett is bowling superbly here and is keeping Sri Lanka in check. Just 34 from the powerplay, but more importantly four wickets have gone down.


Fifth over: Sri Lanka 28 for 4 - The biggest margin of victory in this tournament by runs is the 75 that New Zealand beat Bangladesh by earlier today. England are well on course to beat that but Mathews twice finds the boundary to make the score respectable, the first as he got an inside edge past his own stumps and Buttler.


Fourth over: Sri Lanka 17 for 4 - It is hard to find the positives if you are a Sri Lanka fan right now. If I were you I would relish the final moments of your reign as the World T20 champions, because that title is about to be wrestled away from you. Liam Plunkett into the attack to prolong the pain and just two runs come from his first over.
