WIth that result, Sri Lanka are now out of the reckoning for the WTC Final. But they can take immense pride in how far they have come as a team.

The Basin Reserve in Wellington, New Zealand is a historic venue known for producing lively and seaming pitches that provide an exciting contest between bat and ball. It is one of the most sporting tracks in New Zealand, with a reputation for offering early assistance to seam bowlers. It will be a true test of skill and temperament for the batsmen.
