A comfortable win for Sri Lanka, each team dominating a game this series. The bowlers first did the job, and Dilshan and Thirimanne ensured there were no major hiccups in the chase of 171. Daniel Brettig's report should be ready soon. We don't have any coverage of the presentation. Thanks for tuning in and sending us your feedback, and we'll be back with you for the third ODI on January 18 which will be played in Brisbane. See you then.
