Cricket World Cup 2015: Australia reach quarters with Sri Lanka win

BBC Sport looks at some of the key facts and figures from the 2015 Cricket World Cup as the second fastest ever ODI century from Glenn Maxwell (off 51 balls) helps Australia to join New Zealand and India in the quarter-finals, with a 64-run win over Sri Lanka in Sydney.

Sri Lanka batsman Kumar Sangakkara's record third consecutive World Cup century proved in vain as his side fell short.

Elsewhere in Pool A, four wickets from spinner Daniel Vettori (4-18) saw him join an exclusive 300 ODI wickets club as he helped the Black Caps make it five wins from five and effectively end Afghanistan's World Cup campaign with a six-wicket win in Napier.
