Matthew Wade, Australian wicket-keeper, on Sri Lanka: “They’re a terrific team. They’re going to challenge us with a fair bit of spin I would have thought. There could be up to 12 overs of spin I reckon that we’ll probably face. They’re going to be hard work. We’re going to have to be at our best to beat any team in this tournament, Sri Lanka will certainly be no different.”

Mickey Arthur, Sri Lanka coach on the pressure being on the opposition: “There was a lot of pressure on us there (the First Round), and now the pressure is reversed because we come into this phase with not much to lose. We’re playing good cricket, we’re very dangerous, the players are very clear on what their roles are, and we’re confident we can beat anyone on our day.”
