I'd normally be required to do a short summary of the series here, but Dan B has done my job. Read his thoughts on the one-day series here.

We're set for the presentation ceremony.
Mahela Jayawardene gets an award first for completing 350 ODIs.

The Man of the Match is Lasith Malinga. Three of the previous seven one-day tricks are by Malinga.

Tillakaratne Dilshan: " Definitely, we have performed well today. The bowlers put in a fantastic effort. Today the middle order did the job for us. Chamara Silva batted really nice and his partnership with Jayawardene set up the win. Last Test series we really did well in England, and are looking forward to doing well in a couple of weeks time."

Michael Clarke is the Man of the Series: "Stoked to win the series, disappointing how today went but there is still a long way to go in this series. John came back really well towards the end of his spell, Patto started really well. We want to win every game we play, we have got some work to do in preparation for the Tests, the test guys have been here for a week and working hard."

A beaming Clarke collects the series trophy, and the Australian team gathers round it for photos. So Australia take the series 3-2, the Tests start on August 31st. See you then.

Hastings to BMAJ Mendis, FOUR runs, it's all over, the final stretch was a hard grind but Sri Lanka have finally made it past the finish line, and it was a streaky shot that confirmed the win, an outside edge past the second slip for four, Sri Lanka are back to No. 2, India slip to No. 3 in both Tests and ODIs on the same day

Australia lost their final five wickets for one run, can Sri Lanka do the same?
