A handsome nine-wicket win for Sri Lanka to sign off from this year's T20 World Cup. Leaves Bangladesh bottom of the group. It was an impressive performance, set up by the bowlers and finished off efficiently by the top order. More applause and handshakes for Siriwardene as she finishes her career with a victory

Player of the Match goes to Shashikala Siriwardene. "It's not easy, playing 17 years and leaving. I think I played too long, that's why I'm really emotional. I'll miss everything, especially my team, I love them all. After injuries they really helped me, they really protected me. I'll keep in touch in with cricket, maybe I can give service to women's cricket in the future. I've been playing since eight or nine years old, especially my father, it's because of him I'm here today. My brother, sister and husband. That's why I still play. All the coaches, SLC cricket officials, all my clubs and current Sri Lanka navy. My physios, doctors, trainers. I wish all the best to the team."

Salma Khatun "Today's batting was very poor, the fielding is not good. The girls will rest at hope then it's the national league. I have enjoyed the tournament, every match is a loss, but in these conditions."

Chamari Atapattu "I'm very happy with our performance. We knew it would be a tough game. Our players did well. Siriwardene is a legend in Sri Lanka cricket, like a big sister in my team. She encourages youngsters and seniors. I'll miss her a lot, upset about that. She retired like a champion, that's her style."

I'll wrap things up there for this match. The big one - Australia v New Zealand - starts soon and our coverage will be here. Catch you all soon
