Australia have won by eight wickets - a consolation victory, and Sri Lanka take the series 2-1. Clint McKay is Man of the Match and the Player of the Series is Lasith Malinga.

Well played by Michael Clarke to guide that chase, but the win was set up by superb bowling from Clint McKay and Mitchell Starc, who showed some real promise in his second ODI.

Peter English is at the Gabba and has sent through his bulletin super quickly. Here it is. So, well done to Australia, but extra well done to Sri Lanka over the course of their tour. Meanwhile, check out the scores in Ahmedabad, where New Zealand are really challenging India in the first Test!

From me, Brydon Coverdale, thanks for joining us throughout the series, and goodbye for now.
