What does Sri Lanka’s win over England mean for the race to the final four?

Though their win has brought Sri Lanka to within two points of England, they have just two wins compared to England’s four (two of Sri Lanka’s points have come from washouts). Since the first tie-breaker for teams joined on points is matches won, Sri Lanka need to go ahead of England on points. That means winning all their games or hoping England lose all of theirs. The rest of the pack are still quite far behind the top four and could be further behind once the Afghanistan v India match is over.
