The co-hosts of the 2011 World Cup have lived up to their reputation as tournament favourites, making it quite comfortably to the semi-final stage.

Barring a loss against Pakistan and the rain-affected match against Australia which was abandoned, Sri Lanka have routed the other sides they faced en-route to the final-four stage, including a thumping win against New Zealand in the group match.

Their quarter-final match against England in Colombo might have been a close affair considering the home side were chasing under lights at the R Premadasa stadium, but Tillakaratne Dilshan and Upul Tharanga scored impressive hundreds to set-up a massive 10-wicket victory to send England crashing.
