That's that from Pallekele, quite literally, because this ground is no longer required. We're all off to Colombo for the rest of the tournament, starting with the conclusion to Group 2 tomorrow. Australia v Pakistan at 3.30pm and India v South Africa at 7.30pm with a stack of permutations of whom is going through. So tune in tomorrow, from Monty and I, Alex Winter, it's sayonara...

So England heading home, they'll next be in action in India for the start of the Test series in November. But hosts Sri Lanka remain in the competition with a three from three record in the Super Eights, and now travel to Colombo full of confidence. With the home crowd behind them and their players in fine form, could it be their year again?

Presentation time and the post mortem begins for Stuart Broad: "We've learnt a huge amount from this, we need to keep wickets in hand at the top, we fell short at the top of the order and are death bowling too. Samit also today showed what he could do."

Here comes the Sri Lanka captain Mahela Kumar Sangakkara. "Well I was the official captain today. The guys played really well. Lasith is unbelievable, here with the new ball and with the old ball. It would be fantastic if we can win it but the focus is to keep our feet on the ground." Man of the Match for his five wickets is Lasitha Malinga.

And there we go, the champions are out as Sri Lanka win by 19 runs. The hosts were pretty much at their best tonight, recovered well with the bat, showed they had depth, got a good score and then defended it with an outstanding performance from Lasitha Malinga, who took 5 for 31 and ripped the heart out of England's chase.

Kulasekara to Swann, OUT, full and straight, Swann misses again a nice little cameo but too little too late for England. Stepped to leg but a full, quick delivery finds leg stump

Kulasekara to Swann, 1 no ball, beamer no ball surely, yes, went through at chest height over the stumps, just slipped out, no free hit for this though, for some ridiculous reason, silly rule that
