London: Jun 13, 2013

A buoyant England would eye the semi-final slot but it would be a battle of survival for Sri Lanka, after a narrow opening loss, when the two sides clash in their second Group A match of the ICC Champions Trophy 2013.

The two teams have made contrasting starts to their campaign in the eight-team event, which is being played for the last time.

While England thrashed defending champions Australia by 48 runs, Sri Lanka lost by a wicket against New Zealand in a low-scoring thriller.

Going purely by how the two teams performed in their respective openers, England would start favourites at The Oval.
