Commentary

This is Umpire Rudi's last ODI. Rudi takes a stump as a souvenir. He is congratulated by Zimbabwe and the Sri Lankan players.

Thilan: "Completing 4500 runs with a century ... well done Dilshan ...."

Please hang for quotes from post-match ceremony.

Elton Chigumbura "Sri Lanka bowled well and put us under pressure from ball one. There are lots of positives to get out of this tournament. Especially our batsmen. Unfortunately we are having a break after this. But it's good for the next season. Hopefully we are going in the right way and we will keep winning more matches. Keep watching us and keep supporting us."

Man of the series is Brendan Taylor: "It;s very satisfying to get where we are. Unfortuanately we didn't back it up in the final but we are pleased with how we have gone. Not just my self, others have done welll. Taibu, masakadza and spinners. I am probably more relaxed in this series. Opening is new to me. I haven't done it for a while. It 's nice to play with a good bunch of people."

Dilshan: "I am very happy. the boys performed well. The two fast bowlers set the tone for us by bowling really well. We brought lots of youngsters here and they have got opportunities and done well. Chandimal got a hundred and Jeevan Mendis is a good allrounder .. we are looking at World Cup. I got my form back as well. I want to carry it to the World Cup. I would like to thank my team-mates for supporting me as a captain. It wasn't easy to captain and I have enjoyed it. I like a challenge. "

Dilshan accepts the Trophy and poses together with his team. Happy scenes.

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