The last quarterfinal of the Cricket World Cup sees Sri Lanka host England in Colombo on Saturday.

England go into the match without all-rounder Michael Yardy, who has flown home suffering from depression after five months on tour.

As for the Sri Lankans they're hoping their star off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan can recover from injury to face the most unpredictable team in the tournament.
