Commentary

Sri Lanka win by 68 runs and bag a consolation win. A thorough all-round performance, first set up by Dilshan and Sangakkara. A change of tactic, asking Sangakkara to stand up to the stumps, put the pressure on the Indians straightaway as two wickets fell to thin edges. The biggest gain for India was Jadeja, who scored a solid fifty. Stay with us for the presentation.

Sangakkara is the Man of the Match. He said: "All of us feel we could have contributed more in this series. Most ODIs are won on the batting. India batted tremendously and we were always behind the 8 ball. We should thank all the spectators who came out on a hot day to cheers us even though we were four games down."

Yuvraj Singh is the Man of the Series. He said: "I had a bad series last time so I was determined to turn it around. With the help of my team-mates and Sachin I figured out how to effectively tackle the spinners. The confidence of the team is very high. I haven't changed too many things in my game."

Murali gets an award from Nimbus, the official broadcasters, for breaking Akram's record.

Here's Jayawardene: "The wicket played a major role and it allowed us to push this score. Credit to India, they played really well. We were up against a really good side."

The Indian players receive their medallions.

Dhoni: "They played brilliantly. Our bowling wasn't so strong but it was good to give the guys chances. If the dressing room atmosphere is good then it brings out more talent. Really happy to play here. We won the series but it's never easy playing in SL."

Don't forget to join us for the only Twenty20 international on Tuesday, at the same venue. It starts at 18:00 local (12:30 GMT). Thanks for your company today. It's goodbye from all of us here.
