Commentary

Please wait for the quotes from the post-match ceremony

Vettori: "WHenever you are 9 for 4 you try to do the best you can and we scraped to 90. on this wicket it was competitive but the partnership between Dilshan and Perera took it away from us. It's a beautiful ground and we have been well supported. It's been a long season for us. We have another break now. everyone has really enjoyed the tour."

Sangakkara "We went back to the hotel and had a good chat. The bowlers set the tone for us. Kulasekara is a magical bowler; these kind of wickets suit him really well. Everyone chipped in. The ground is brilliant, the place is really great and the crowd support was wonderful."

Man of the match is Kulasekara: "I am really happy. This is my best performance in Twenty20 cricket."

Man of the series is Vettori: "The crowd have been fantastic. Bit of subcontinental feel. Everyone was excited. "

That's it from us. Thanks for logging on. Good bye and good luck.
