Sky Cricket Podcast: Kumar Sangakkara on England and Sri Lanka
Last Updated: 27/03/16 9:20am
Kumar Sangakkara and Mike Atherton join Ian Ward on the latest Sky Cricket Podcast to discuss England's thriller with Sri Lanka, Jos Buttler, Angelo Mathews and in-form New Zealand.
England edged into the World T20 semi-finals with a 10-run win over Sri Lanka in Delhi on Saturday - consigning both the reigning champions and South Africa to an exit at the Super 10s stage.
Sangakkara and Atherton watched the action unfold in the Sky Sports studio and discussed many of the hot topics afterwards, including...
NERVES OF STEEL - With Sri Lanka requiring 22 from the final two two overs, Chris Jordan and Ben Stokes extinguished any hopes they had of victory with some excellent death bowling. Athers praises both seamers.
TOP-ORDER CONCERNS - Sangakkara assesses the top-order collapse Sri Lanka suffered as they slumped to 15-4 chasing England's 171-4, and how Angelo Mathews' superb half-century almost turned the game.
BRUTAL BUTTLER - The difference between the sides was arguably Buttler, who smashed 66 from 37 balls for England. Our pundits discuss the dynamic keeper-batsman, plus we hear from the man himself
NEGATING NEW ZEALAND - The Black Caps are into the semi-finals on the back of four wins from four - but could they come a cropper against Eoin Morgan's England in Delhi?
