The Sri Lanka batsmen are ecstatic, they jump and punch the air, Jayawardene plucks a couple of stumps as souvenirs. A dejected Pakistan team shakes hand with the Sri Lankan team.
Agnel Pereira from Bahrain: "Through such a heroic performance by Sri Lanka, Ajantha Mendis' poor form is striking! At the same time, Herath's unheralded success. Why he wasnt in their side all this time?"
Younis Khan: "It's not the first time that we collapsed, it's the third time. I think it's because we are not playing even Test cricket. I think we fell short by about 100 runs."
"Alam has played all his cricket in the middle order, but I asked him whether he would open for the team, his response was fantastic."
Kumar Sangakkara: "It's a very special series, two very absorbing Tests, the key for us was that whenever we needed someone to step up, someone put their hand up."
"Kulasekara and Herath were fanstastic, there wasn't much in the pitch, but it shows (what you can do) if you have heart, and are willing to bend your back."
"It was an important breakthrough that Paranavitana got for us as well. And we must say a big 'Thank you' to Dilshan, who has kept wickets in both Tests."
Man of the Match award is shared by Nuwan Kulasekara and Fawad Alam.
Alam: "170 wasn't enough of a target, we needed 250-260."
Kulasekara: "I worked hard in the last one year with my coaching staff."
That's it from me, Siddarth Ravindran. Thanks for all the mails today, some 1600 of them. See you in the third Test, starting on the 20th
