Cricket TV - Sri Lanka Beat Australia To Qualify For Semi-Finals - Cricket World TV

Sri Lanka survived a late Australian fightback to take a 20-run win and claim their place in the semi-finals of the ICC Champions Trophy 2013.

After half-centuries from Mahela Jayawardene and Lahiru Thirimanne had set them up for a score of 253 for eight, they needed three wickets from Nuwan Kulasekara and a brilliant caught and bowled by Tillakaratne Dilshan at the end to dismiss Australia for 233.

Sri Lanka will now play India in the second semi-final at Cardiff while The Oval will host England and South Africa in the first knockout game.
