Following their shock defeat to New ZealandSri Lanka now have an anxious wait to see if they will qualify for the Semi Finals of the ICC Champions Trophy in South Africa.
Sri Lanka have played all their group matches, now, they won their 1st game against hosts South Africa, but these two losses to England and New Zealand have put them in a very difficult position.
Sri Lanka have been playing some good cricket in recent times, they reached the Finals of the ICC World Twenty20 in June and have won ODI series at home against Pakistan and New Zealand.
For Sri Lanka to now qualify for the Semis they must now hope that England can beat New Zealand, however should New Zealand emerged victorious in that match then the Kiwis would qualify for the last 4.
An early exit for Sri Lanka will be very disappointing given the great form that they have shown earlier in the year.
If New Zealand play to their potential then it would take a brave person to Betagainst them beating England.
