Jayasuriya loves that, clenching his fist and if that's his last contribution in a game on Australian soil, as it is likely to be, well, that was a fitting ending. What a game at the MCG, it had everything and Sri Lanka are jubilant with their second win of the tournament. It's not enough for them to stay in the tournament of course, but this was the most live of dead rubbers. Handshakes all round now as the Australia team come into the tunnel.
10.20pm Here's Jayasuriya. "We badly needed this win today. Overall we didn't bat well. The bowlers have been bowling well and the fielders have backed up well."
And here's another who won't be back to Australia, Murali. "It's going to be the last tour for me definitely, good on us for finishing like that. I enjoyed myself always, sometimes ups and downs in Australia but I enjoy the cricket."
And their departure will be swift, as Jayasuriya explains. "We are flying out tonight, a 12.30 flight. Should be able to do it, a wash and then on to the airport."
Great work from the pair who have given so much to the game over so many years.
Here's Ponting. "It looked like a couple of us got done off the surface rather than anything else. These sort of wickets, and chasing runs, you can't affort to lose groups of wickets. Gilly struck the ball beautifully. He's showing some great form going into the finals. I'd rather that performance come tonight rather than on Sunday.
"It's always painful when you lose, especially when you seemingly have the game in the bag like we did. Sri Lanka bowled well and took the chances when they came."
Tonight's Man of the Match is Gilchrist, although Jayawardene must have come close there. "I had that game by the throat, so I feel a bit silly," he says. "I should have seen it through, I got carried away. When you get out like that you think 'No big deal' but then it changed.
"I'm very proud of the time I've had here. The crowd were fantastic, just a shame they've got to leave with a loss. Hopefully this will sharpen us up, it was a reminder."
Here's Jayawardene now: "Guys are all ready to head to the airport. We showed a lot of character today and can take a lot of positives. We had a lot of opportunities in this tournament but we didn't take them. We have to learn to take them."
Thanks for joining me for this cracker today. Do tune in again on Sunday when we'll be back with coverage of the sold-out first final from the SCG when Australia will take on India while Sri Lanka are leaving on a jet plane... in a few hours. They'll be able to have a celebratory drink then, though after today.
Jayasuriya into the attack. No pressure then on the man who has not bowled all day. Jayawardene has a word with him and a pat on the shoulders
Now then, does this match have a final twist?
The batsmen meet to consult
That far away, the ball was
It's Amerasinghe time, he'll be on from the Members End
