Dilshan swoops to send Sri Lanka to semi-finals

Reuters, LONDON

Australia continued to play their shots and Matthew Wade made 31 off 23 balls before skying a catch to Dilshan on the long-off boundary.

They got past 164, ensuring Sri Lanka could not finish above England on net run rate, and Adam Voges made 49 before becoming the ninth man out with the score on 192.

McKay and Doherty batted sensibly, though, picking up singles at will and Sri Lanka looked short of ideas on how to separate them until Dilshan’s inspired intervention.
