Buttler onslaught fires England into semis

Sri Lanka let a hard-earned early advantage slip, handing England a semi-final spot with their fourth straight win in the Super 12s stage of the T20 World Cup here at the Sharjah Cricket ground last night.

After the Sri Lankan bowlers had frustrated the batters with a mesmerising bowling effort in the first half of England’s batting, reducing them to 47/3, England, led by Jos Buttler, produced one of the great counterattacks to prove why they are considered one of the favourites to clinch the title.
