there's the win, and the series! Malinga bowls McKay with a slower yorker
The Sri Lankans are all in a huddle, the rest of the squad runs out on to the field to join them, Murali makes sure he pockets the ball - after all he's achieved, a series win in Australia clearly means a lot to him. What a performance from Sri Lanka, in both games. The teams are shaking hands now, Sri Lanka have won by 29 runs by the Duckworth-Lewis system. There are plenty of Sri Lankan fans in the SCG, just as there were in Melbourne. Upul Tharanga is the Man of the Match for his unbeaten 86.
What a day - it's 11.20pm local time - I can't remember a later finish to an ODI in Australia. The Sri Lankans have thoroughly deserved this series win. Today they batted well, but it was really the bowlers that won them the match. Murali was on song in his last match at the SCG, and Malinga was very difficult to get away when his slower ball was working. Not to mention the wickets delivered by Perera and Kulasekara. Australia will be hoping for a consolation win in the final match at the Gabba on Sunday, where they'll also no doubt make a few team changes.
Thanks for joining us, and be sure to return for Sunday's final ODI. From Brydon Coverdale, bye for now!
Siddle gets under this one and drives over cover
Siddle gives himself plenty of room, Malinga bangs it in short and it sails over the stumps through to Sangakkara
off the pads towards square leg
So, the Aussies need 34 from the last over. Five sixes and a four - easy! No sense of theatre from Sangakkara - he should've brought Murali back on! It's Malinga to bowl out
goes for the pull, comes off the toe of the bat and it's collected at long-on
backs right off from this one and punches it through cover
pulled down to long-on and they scamper back for two
pushed down to long-on for a single
Sri Lanka are one wicket from a historic victory - what will be their first series win in Australia.
the ninth wicket is down - Hauritz went the slog over midwicket, as he had to do, and it's skied off the leading edge to long-on, where Perera takes the catch
McKay advances and turns that into a full toss, gets it away through cover
half-volley and he's lucky to get away with that, McKay tries to drive over cover and gets a thick edge down to third man
full and wide of off, Hauritz gets a thick inside edge back past the stumps
wild, windy swipe outside off there, and what's happened here? They've taken a sneaky bye after Sangakkara tossed the ball back towards the bowler
not a bad shot from McKay there, he's picked up a low full toss, almost a yorker, and lifted it on the bounce to long-on
yorker length, Hauritz drives back past the bowler
sprays this one wide of off, no question about that one being called wide, it was unreachable
Hauritz backs away and slaps a slower ball over wide midwicket, it lands safely between the two men in the deep
Great over for Sri Lanka - they can't lose from here, surely.
turned to midwicket, can't find a gap
ah, Randiv gets his man, Smith dances down the pitch and Randiv beats the bat with a quicker ball, Sangakkara has no trouble whipping the bails off with Smith way out of his ground
Smith advance, but turns that ball into a yorker and can only dig it out back to Randiv
