So Saturday’s match looms as a crunch clash. Sri Lanka are under more pressure than their opponents and will have to play better than they have done so far at the tournament to win, but New Zealand will have budgeted for both points against the Afghans and will feel the weight of one of them having slipped away.

Neutrals will be keen to watch Trent Boult and Tim Southee in action together for what may be one of the last few times. Boult was, at his request, released from his NZC contract in August to enable him to spend more time with his family and playing in T20 leagues. That spells the beginning of the end for one of the modern game’s most prominent and enduring fast bowling partnerships. Neutrals will also hope all of Sri Lanka’s players make it through the game in one piece. Enough with the injuries already.

When: Saturday, October 29, 7pm Local Time (1.30pm IST)

Where: Sydney Cricket Ground

What to expect: A lovely spring day/night with no rain forecast. Despite the SCG lugging the second-lowest T20I runrate in Australia going into the tournament, the three highest first innings in the competition have all been recorded here – and have been convincingly defended.

Head to head: New Zealand have won 10 of the 19 T20Is between the sides, with one washed out. But, in the history of this tournament, Sri Lanka have prevailed in four of their five games against the Kiwis.
