Commentary

Paul Collingwood and the rest of the England team come out to greet Pietersen and to shake the hands of Sri Lanka's players. England take the series 3-1 - what an effort it has been. It is their first major series win in the subcontinent since 1987 and their first ever win in Sri Lanka. We hope you've enjoyed our coverage today. From Will Luke, Martin Williamson and Andrew Miller, it's goodnight - and do join us for the final game on Saturday.

Jayasuriya to Bopara, 1 leg bye, and there it is! England win the series 3-1 as he just whips this leg-side delivery down to fine-leg. Pietersen runs through and jumps in the air in delight, pumping his fist. He's found form at last and has taken England through to not only an impressive win today, but an excellent series victory

Malinga to Bopara, no run, solidly defended by Bopara in the end but a cracking ball with which to end the over, swinging into the right hander at the last moment
