England face Sri Lanka after Yardy exit

Co-hosts Sri Lanka play Cricket World Cup's most unpredictable team for place in semifinals.

    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.
