That's all from us at ESPNcricinfo. As Sri Lanka pick their trophy, it's time for us to say goodbye. On behalf of Andrew, this is Sreshth signing off. See you on March 4 for the T20I series.

10.55pm Time for the presentation.

Dimuth Karunaratne: When Pradeep got injured, Mathews picked his hand up. Wanindu too. Real team work. This is a huge confidence for us. We knew they can hit big sixes, so I told Thisara to back himself. Avishka and Kusal put their hands up. Angelo Mathews may be oldest man in the team, but he's playing like the youngest.

Pollard says Mathews used the surface well. He is looking forward to the T20 series. Some new boys back into the squad.

Wanindu Hasaranga is the Player of the Series

Angelo Mathews is the Player of the Match for his four-wicket haul "Feeling good, although I was disappointed with my batting. It was a great team effort. Can't remember the last time I bowled all ten overs (July 2015). I knew I had to bowl extra overs after Pradeep got injured. So had a bit of experience. Not easy task bowling against West Indies at the death. Specially they've got plenty of guys who play around the world, so it wasn't an easy task.

Udana: "We knew if we got our variations right, the game was ours. Pitch was slow. Really slow, so it helped us. My plan was to bowl it little wider. Mathews is playing really well for us. He's really nice player. Much needed series win, especially against West Indies guys. As a young bunch, we are very happy."

Mathews leads the team off. '

Kapil Baldawa: "Game gifted by WI to SL. Just poor batting and judgement in the last 15 overs. Just don't know how international teams get it so wrong. Chase can hit and he should have come in before Walsh Jr"

Holte : "My boy Mathews well and truly back with his 2014 form!!! Exciting times ahead for SL cricket? "

apkp: "SL did it again without their spearhead bowler"

10.42pm WI coach Simmons looks disappointed in the pavilion. The teams now shake hands as Sri Lanka win the ODI series 3-0. Only the second time have they managed a clean sweep against WI. They did it last in 2015.

Mathews to Joseph, no run, Sri Lanka clinch a nail biter! Another full and wide ball that Cottrell can't connect with. Mathews is ecstatic and so is coach Mickey Arthur

Six to tie. Anything else and Sri Lanka win the series 3-0. What will Joseph do?

Mathews to Cottrell, 1 run, full, on off, and he flicks behind square. They settle for a single

Udam Haritha: "OH!!! what a cinematic show, camera crew deserve a hat off, i thought six but a WICKET and Mathews did his magic again"

P Narain: "Whatever the result, Allen is a legend, battling on with the shoulder injury like that"

Mathews to Cottrell, no run, good length, outside off. Wild swing from Sheldon, but he can't make the connection...

Mathews to Allen, OUT, is that six? No! Caught at deep midwicket In the slot on middle, and Allen goes for the biggie over the leg side. But it's not got the connection he was looking for, and taken by the fielder riding the boundary line
