That brings us to the end of our coverage of the 29th match of the T20 World Cup 2021, with England emerging winners for a fourth time in as many games to become the first team to seal their place in the semis. Kudos to Sri Lanka though for pushing the Group 1 leaders all the way, and they were very much in the game till the time Hasaranga and Shanaka stuck around. They'll be hoping to learn their lessons from this defeat and try and sign out with a win in their remaining match against West Indies. England, on the other hand, have the option of resting a player or two for their remaining group game against South Africa, though one can never be sure if the reigning ODI world champions will want to take their foot off the gas pedal at any stage during the tournament.

That brings us to the end of our coverage of this match. This is Amit Banerjee, signing off and bidding you all goodnight!

Dasun Shanaka: The bowlers been outstanding the whole tournament in the first ten overs. The experience is low. When we started batting, we knew dew would play a role. Wickets cost us the match. Six months back we were not the same team, but we have come a long way. Really happy with the way the boys are fighting.

Eoin Morgan: Incredibly proud. Liam Livingstone and Moeen Ali stepped up unbelievably well to support others with the ball. Jos Buttler played one of his best ever innings in an England shirt. Privileged to play with him and great to have him in the team. Sri Lanka have pushed us further than we have been pushed in the tournament. A combination of unbelievable skill and his calm nature. Today was a bit of a tougher test.

23:22 (IST)

Jos Buttler is the Player of the Match!

Buttler: Stay patient. Managed to get a really good partnership. We were just trying to get something going. At the time we were thinking 120 might be a good score. We were trying to target the small side. Really enjoy batting with Morgs. (Running Shanaka out) Was probably the favourite bit of my day. We were under pressure for a long part in the chase. I was trying to guess where he was trying to bowl, and had batted for quite some time.

Few would say otherwise...

After 19 overs,Sri Lanka 137/10 ( Lahiru Kumara 1 , )

Moeen puts the finishing touches, removing Karunaratne and Theekshana in a space of six deliveries to end with 2/15 as England hand Sri Lanka a 26-run loss to not only extend their unbeaten start and collect their fourth win on the trot, but also sealing his side’s semi-final qualification chances.

OUT! Theekshana looks to have some fun with the match virtually out of their grasp, looking to clear the wide long off fence, but ends up offering Jordan the safest of catches. Moeen Ali grabs the remaining wicket off his last delivery of the evening, sealing a 26-run win for England! SL 137 all out

After 18 overs,Sri Lanka 134/8 ( Chamika Karunaratne 0 , Maheesh Theekshana 0)

England effectively seal the game in Jordan’s final over of the evening, with Dasun Shanaka and Dushmantha Chameera departing in a space of five balls. Jordan signs off with 2/24 at the end of his quota, and the equation of 30 off 12 now looks near impossible with no set batter at the crease.

OUT! A second wicket for Chris Jordan off his last delivery of the evening, as Dushmantha Chameera holes out to the fielder standing in front of the boundary at deep backward square leg. SL 134/8

OUT! Superb piece of work by Jos Buttler, catching Shanaka short of his crease at the striker's end just as the Sri Lanka skipper took a couple of steps forward askng for a single! England may very well have sealed the game with the dismissal of the opposition captain. SL 130/7

England vs Sri Lanka, Latest Updates, T20 World Cup 2021: Livingstone starts off with a dot, followed by a couple of singles. Hasaranga slices the ball over point off the fourth to collect his third boundary, but perishes next ball while attempting to clear the fence thanks to a terrific bit of work by Roy and Billings near the wide long off boundary. Seven from the over along with the wicket, with Chamika Karunaratne joining Shanaka at the centre. Sri Lanka need 34 off 18 with four wickets in hand.

Preview: Having virtually sealed their qualification after a thumping victory over the Old Enemy on Saturday, England will eye a fourth victory on the trot when they take on Sri Lanka in the ongoing T20 World Cup on Monday.

The Englishmen were at their decisive best against arch-rivals Australia, whom they will meet again for the Ashes that starts a little over a month from now. The bowlers were on the money from the word go after England opted to field as the two Chris' — Woakes and Jordan — set about dismantling the Aussie top order to restrict them to 21/4 in the seventh over.

While a late fightback from skipper Aaron Finch (44) and Ashton Agar (20) lent some respectability to the Aussie batting performance as they eventually managed 125, stopped the explosive England batting unit from comfortably chasing down a modest target like this was always going to be a challenge. And even though they lost a couple of wickets along the way, Jos Buttler's fiery 71 not out ensured the 2016 runners-up got home with more than eight overs to spare.

Sri Lanka, on the other hand, suffered their second straight loss that has suddenly has made their chances of making it to the last four of the mega event very difficult. Dasun Shanaka's men, coming off an eight-wicket loss against the Aussies, were bundled out for 142 thanks to another disciplined bowling effort from South Africa with opener Pathum Nissanka (72) fighting a lone battle against the Proteas attack.

In reply, South Africa lost wickets at regular intervals and were looking down and out after Wanindu Hasaranga completed a hat-trick — the second of this tournament. David Miller and Kagiso Rabada found themselves staring at a tricky position in the 18th over, but managed to keep their calm in the pressure cooker situation. Rabada released the pressure with a six off Dushmantha Chameera in the penultimate over, before Miller went berserk the next over with back-to-back sixes off Lahiru Kumara. Rabada then hit the winning boundary to seal the Proteas' second win on the trot.
