Sri Lanka opened its account in the Super Eights following a Super Over win over New Zealand. Chasing 175, the hosts were well on course to reach the target but somehow after a few quiet overs, the match was back in the balance.
The unofficial practice games in the tournament are over. All teams expected to make it through to the Super Eights have done the same. The real battle begins now, with Sri Lanka taking on New Zealand in the first Super Eights clash at Pallekele.
