So that completes Sri Lanka's 2-0 sweep and the Test series. We have enjoyed bringing this match to you live and we hope you enjoyed our coverage. Still lot of cricket going on, with India all set to come out for their reply after the tea interval in Rajkot, so stay tuned in for that. Cheers!

Herath - I am always trying to improve. I haven't decided anything (on retirement). I don't think about records and will take each series as it comes. I need to consider my fitness overall as well.

Rangana Herath is the Man of the Match

Karunaratne - "I think I was struggling a bit in the Australia series, but after that, I played matches and got some confidence, which has helped me in this series. These are good wickets to bat on, especially in the morning. I tried to occupy the crease. I will be available for the ODI series if the selectors pick me.

Dimuth Karunaratne is the Man of the Series

Graeme Cremer: Definitely, we did a few good things, but credit to Sri Lanka. They were better than us with ball and bat. The guys have worked hard. They love playing here at the Harare Sports Club. We think of ourselves as more of short-format team. We want to play well in the longer format as well, but we will look to do well in the limited-overs series.

11am All set for the presentation. Match officials, and players and management of both teams are being handed out medallions. Meanwhile, in Rajkot, England's first innings has ended at 537.

10.50am Herath added three to his five wickets last evening and bowled Zimbabwe out for 233 to secure a 257-run win as Sri Lanka whitewash Zimbabwe 2-0. Going into the fifth day, the result was never really in doubt with just three Zimbabwe wickets to take. Herath took them all, two lbws and one caught at slip. Lots of positives to take for Zimbabwe into the ODI series, which is not too far away. Sri Lanka were clinical in execution for the second straight Test. Two wins at the toss helped too.

Herath to Mpofu, OUT, that will be the game! Mpofu doesn't review and SL have completed a 2-0 series win. Herath finishes with eight. Absolutely plumb again. Flat delivery on off and middle, the ball goes through Mpofu's defense, skids on and strikes him in front of middle. Easy decision for the umpire. What a performance from Herath.
