With that Pakistan have won this game by 31 runs and eked out a consolation win. India win the series 3-2.

Shoaib Malik top scored with 89, picked up some wickets and will probably walk away with the Man of the Match and steal the headlines, but it was Sohail Tanveer who did the damage in the top half. He bowled exceptionally well to some of India's most destructive batsmen and dismissed them early.

Stay with us and we'll bring you details from the post-match presentaions.

First the match officials receive their medallions for the series. The match referee and the umpires come on and get their souvenirs.

"It was good for us, especially before the Test series," says Shoaib Malik who was named Man of the Match. "Credit goes to the team for the way they put in effort. My form is also alright. I've come good at the right time."

The Indian team comes across to receive medallions for winning this series. The coaching and support staff come up first. The players follow soon after.

After all the medals are distributed it's time for the Man of the Series and it's Yuvraj Singh for his allround performance in the series.

"Everyone played well when it was required. There's scope for improvement in the fielding, but we're working hard," says Mahendra Singh Dhoni. "We lost wickets early on and then had to catch up. The required rate kept mounting and it was the initial wickets that made it really hard."

With that we come to the end of coverage of this game. Thank you very much for following the ODIs on Cricinfo. Do stay with us for the Tests and all the other live cricket we have. For the moment this is Anand Vasu, saying cheers, and signing off.
