7.50pm The rain's beginning to come down again. Looks like we won't have a presentation ceremony. We can tell you, however, that Nuwan Pradeep is the Player of the Match. That's all from us. Hope you've enjoyed our coverage. Until next time, it's good night from me and Saurabh.

Haamidh Uwais: "A relief for Sri Lanka after winning a bilateral ODI series after 3 years. Will they be able to continue this in World Cup as well? Well I do think so. Though Sri Lanka are minnow bashers, they have always had the luck and chances to go to the knockouts in World Cups."

DanielAlexander: "This is Sri Lanka's first bilateral ODI series win after June 2016."

7.39pm Sri Lanka finally break their win-less sequence in ODIs. The last time they won in the format was in October 2018 against England. They've had eight straight defeats and one match abandoned since then, before today's victory.

de Silva to Watt, OUT, down the track, shortens his length a little and he slaps to extra-cover. And what's happened here? They've looked to run a single and there's been a run-out. And that is that for Scotland

BTJ Wheal run out (Karunaratne/de Silva) 0 (0b 0x4 0x6)

de Silva to Watt, 1 run, OUT, Down the track, can't get close enough to the pitch, swings hard but can only send it to long-off on the bounce. Looks to keep strike even when two runs were out of the question, and poor Alasdair Evans is run out by yards at the danger end

AC Evans run out (NLTC Perera/de Silva) 1 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

37 off 7, six sixes to tie. Dhananjaya to finish. Round the wicket to Watt.

33 | 7 Runs 1 Wkt | SCOT: 198/8 (37 runs required from 6 balls, RR: 6.00, RRR: 37.00)

NLTC Perera to Watt, 1 run, leg-stump yorker. Makes a bit of room and jabs into the covers
NLTC Perera to Watt, FOUR runs, shot. Walks right across and flicks the full one on off stump over the man at short fine leg
NLTC Perera to Evans, 1 run, bangs it in short on off stump. Looks to open up and pull, the ball hits high on his bat and pops up and plops down in the midwicket area
NLTC Perera to Evans, no run, length ball outside off. Clears his front leg, slogs, misses

Alasdair Evans is on strike for the first time.
