10.45pm Warner collects the trophy and soaks in the moment with his team-mates. Andrew Fernando's report will tell you the full story of Dilshan's farewell match.

The Sri Lankan players send-off Dilshan. He walks into the sunset and joins his old-mates Sanga and Mahela. Many thanks for tuning in. Time to bring the curains down on Australia's tour of Sri Lanka as well. Stay classy, good night!

10.25pm Hmm, the players are seated. A long presentation beckons.

Thilanga Sumathipala, SLC President: Well done to David Warner and his team. Credit to Chandimal for taking the new team forward. Thanks to the crowd for coming over, and good luck.

Maxwell, Man of the Match and the Man of the Series: It probably got a little closer at the end. Pallekele I had a bit of fun. I am looking at Finch's record and trying to beat it. Most pleasing thing is to come back and strike the ball well. Enjoying the crowd going nuts, it has been a tough tour. I have to go back and play well in the Matador Cup and do my bit in the Shield cricket as well.

Dilshan is honoured by the SLC under firework-filled skies.

Dilshan: "First of all I want to take the time to congratulate the Australian team. They came back strongly after losing the Test series and good luck for the upcoming series."

He thanks his principals, coaches, captains, and SLC presidents in Sinhala.

Chandimal: The way we batted I was disappointed. We were 20-25 runs short. Credit to the Australian bowlers. We will have to do some homework during the rest period. Dhananjaya batted brilliantly and we need to take the positive out of it. We all know Dilshan is a legend in the cricket world. He is a match-winner and a game-changer. He was my first one-day and Test captain, lucky to captain him in his last game. Thank you Dilshan aiyya. My team and I wish you all the best for the future.

Warner: It has been fantastic through the one-dayers and T20s. I couldn't have asked anything more or less. It is a massive achievement for the one-day boys. They came here with high hopes and expectations, No.1 team. Credit to Glenn Maxwell, his performance was phenomenal. Thanks to the supporters for supporting both teams.

10.05pm That is that. End of Dilshan's 497th and last international match. Australia crash his farewell party. He, however, reaches out to the crowd, takes high-fives, and acknowledges the applause. He signs off with a wicket off his last delivery in international cricket. #ThankyouDilshan

Maxwell ignited the modest chase with a bevy of reverse-sweeps and switch-hits and scorched his way to an 18-ball half-century, the fastest by an Australian in T20 internationals. The tourists were cruising at 93 for 0, before Sri Lanka's spinners unravelled the chase, briefly tearing open the portal to the Test series. Head ultimately dragged his side past the line.

Gerard Christop: "Is there a super series scoreline for this series? " --- Nope, this isn't a super series

Nikhil Mane: "Terrific comeback though by Australia after the Test drubbing. "

Uwaisul Karnain: "T. M. Dilshan retires with a wicket off the last ball of his International career! All the best, World cricket is going to miss you Champion!"

wcpak: "Good Luck to the inventor of the scoop shot,Mr.Dilshan."

Qaaid: "Chandimal's first captain was Dilshan. Dilshan's last captain is Chandimal..."

Nikhil Mane: "back-to-back awards for Maxwell. Would you believe it before this series he had never won an award for his batting in this format? "

Pathirana to Head, SIX runs, Palmed over for six. Australia sweep the series 2-0! Head dares to charge at Pathirana again. Mowed it to deep midwicket, where Sena leaps and only lobs it over the fence. Initially omitted from the ODI squad to face Sri Lanka in limited-overs matches, Head seals the chase with a slog-swept boundary

Dilshan to Wade, OUT, Catch Dilshan if you can! He sets off again as the Premadasa raises itself to another roar. Sri Lanka have more hope. Wade shapes (pre-meditates) to reverse sweep from outside leg, he only flaps this full one into the hands of Chandimal at extra over. It was too full for the shot

MS Wade c Chandimal b Dilshan 14 (29m 23b 0x4 0x6) SR: 60.86

Dilshan to Khawaja, OUT, Dilshan strikes in his farewell match and sets off on a celebratory run. That was plumb! Straight delivery on middle from round the stumps, Khawaja dropped down to one knee, but missed the sweep, and umpire Martinesz's finger went up almost immediately

UT Khawaja lbw b Dilshan 6 (16m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Prasanna to Khawaja, no run, Prasanna shells a return catch! Tossed this up outside off, stops on Khawaja. He checks his drive and chips it back to the bowler. It dipped at him but burst through the fingertips

The Premadasa has found its voice again. Khawaja is welcomed by a slip and leg-slip

Prasanna to Wade, OUT, Sri Lanka have a sniff here? Faulkner has been caught short. Pushed through on middle, Wade works it in front of midwicket and sets off for a risky single. There wasn't a single there to be honest. Faulkner responds, but Chandi attacks the ball and spears a throw to Kusal who does the rest. Faulkner did not even bother to dive

JP Faulkner run out (Chandimal/†MDKJ Perera) 1 (10m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Pathirana to Warner, OUT, Warner sweeps it into the lap of backward square leg. More late cheer for Sri Lanka. Three wickets in the space of seven balls. Good length ball on middle with a hint of extra bounce, Warner drops to one knee and top-edges it to Thisara

DA Warner c NLTC Perera b Pathirana 25 (48m 24b 3x4 0x6) SR: 104.16

Pathirana to Henriques, OUT, An appeal for stumping, Kusal missed it on the first attempted but grabbed it on the rebound and took the bails off. On-the-line stumping. Henriques' poor tour ends. He stepped out and simply yorked himself. He had a tiny escape route when Kusal fluffed it initially. But then he recovered from the bobble to remove Henriques

MC Henriques st †MDKJ Perera b Pathirana 1 (6m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Mustafa Moudi: "Finally SL dismisses Maxwell. Perhaps the only positive for them"

Prasanna to Maxwell, OUT, Chopped onto the middle stump. Prasanna sends Maxi off and shows him the way out. Maxi is quite peeved. Slower legbreak outside off, Maxi looks to cut it away. He plays a bit early and bottom-edges it onto the middle stump. End of another pulsating innings

GJ Maxwell b Prasanna 66 (41m 29b 7x4 4x6) SR: 227.58

Prasanna to Maxwell, FOUR runs, two men flung themselves after the ball, but Kapugedera and Mendis have muffed up. Maxwell went for the reverse sweep again, got under the ball, honestly a little too far under the ball to time it well. Still he gets it away

NLTC Perera to Maxwell, FOUR runs, short, angled into the stumps, Maxwell backs away and slaps it. Not entirely timed, but it has enough to lob over and to the right of the diving short third man fielder

NLTC Perera to Maxwell, FOUR runs, and again, through mid-off. Thisara is looking for the blockhole at leg stump. Maxi steps away and drills it through.. That's the record for the fastest fifty by an Australian. Got to it off 19 balls the other day when he scored 146. This one off 18 balls

NLTC Perera to Maxwell, FOUR runs, shovelled over mid-off. Miss the yorker at your peril. The strength he puts into the shot through his bottom hand and forearms is amazing.
5.3

NLTC Perera to Maxwell, SIX runs, bye-bye legcutter. The square boundaries are fairly big, but Maxwell has plenty of power. The bat speed is incredible. Though he had fooled Warner with a short ball, this one is well within the Maxwell's reach

Senanayake to Maxwell, SIX runs, skids into the leg stump, Maxi goes low and slog-sweeps it viciously over the backward square leg fence

Senanayake to Maxwell, SIX runs, He has hit the pants off this! Pushed through, full outside off, not much turn, Maxi sinks his teeth into it and golf-swings it over long-on. The seam-up ball has been dispatched

Senanayake to Maxwell, FOUR runs, flighted outside off, a helmet-less Maxi surges down the track and lifts it over mid-on, though it was not middled

Nikhil Mane: "Glenn Maxwell makes these reverse sweeps and switch hits look so easy " --- You bet

Pathirana to Maxwell, FOUR runs, overpitched and outside off, bottom-hand dominated drive square through the off side, whistles away

Pathirana to Maxwell, SIX runs, That's one of those Maxi trick shots. It goes all the way for the first six of the match. Pushed through full on middle, he reverses it and swats it over backward point

Lakmal to Warner, FOUR runs, Lakmal overpitches outside off, Warner takes it and slaps it over the diving mid-off fielder

Lakmal to Warner, FOUR runs, full and outside off, Warner flays it over extra-cover for a boundary. Lakmal over-shot this full ball

Senanayake to Warner, FOUR runs, Warner unleashes the reverse sweep. Full on middle, goes low, and slots it away to the left of backward point. Such fast hands

Vishal desai: "Amazing transformation by the team Australia. They beat Sri Lanka 4-1 and they are on the way to beat 2-0. Is this same team they lost 3-0 in test series?" --- They have been boosted by the ODI specialists and have lost some players to injuries towards the end of the tour

Senanayake to Maxwell, FOUR runs, Sena lobs this up full on middle, mid-on is up, and Maxi brings the bottom hand into play, shovelling over the top of the fielder

Lakmal to Warner, no run, pretty full on middle and leg, bunted back to the bowler. Lakmal has a shy at the stumps and strikes Warner flush on the back of the leg. Lakmal puts his hand up in apology, and Warner kept his cool
