The Sri Lankan team qualified for the Champions Trophy semi-finals with a 20-run triumph over holders Australia in the last league game at the Oval in London on yesterday.

Sri Lanka made 253-8 after being sent in to bat and then bowled out Australia for 233 to join hosts England in the semi-finals from group A with 4 points each.

On the other hand England topped the group because of a better run-rate and will take on Group B runners-up South Africa in the 1st semi-final at the Oval on Wednesday.

Sri Lanka will meet Group B winners India in the 2nd semi-final in Cardiff on Thursday, a repeat of the 2011 World Cup final in Mumbai which the Indians won.

The final is at Edgbaston, Birmingham, on Sunday.
