The 2010 World Twenty20 passed without a significant upset in the group stage and this tournament has also gone to form so far. In the Caribbean, however, England only scraped through to the Super Eights on run rate, with the rain denying Ireland a chance to chase 121 for a victory that would have eliminated the eventual winners. In Colombo, against an Afghanistan side that soaks up goodwill with every impudent swat for six, there is fresh potential for England to add to a head-scratching collection of recent snafus that includes losing to Netherlands at Lord's in the 2009 World Twenty20 and Ireland and Bangladesh at last year's World Cup.

While Afghanistan, like Ireland, no longer benefit from the element of surprise - England will have watched their defeat to India, in addition to the hours of video analysis - the brio and verve that infuses their cricket still manages to act like an adrenaline shot. Afghanistan's effervescent rise in world cricket has not yet brought the scalp of a Full Member but the margins of defeat are getting smaller and a particularly poor display in the field, when they dropped four catches, was the main difference against India. That is an area Afghanistan must address but there is a sense that heroic near-misses will only suit them for so long.

For England, a win will produce no fanfare but would secure progression from Group A. Their status as both the No. 1 team and the defending champions sits uneasily with a young squad playing in unfamiliar conditions but two contrasting victories in tight warm-up matches suggest they have taken their preparations seriously. England will be happy to doff their caps respectfully and avoid a duffing up, otherwise serious questions will be asked. You imagine that Kevin Pietersen, in his role as a pundit for ESPN Star Sports, would be happy to field a few of them.
