and that is it. Roach has been given out. But he has gone for the review. Tossed up on middle, skids onto Roach who misses that. Is there some bat though? Doesn't look like it. Remember, the onfield decision is out. It just has to clip the leg stump for the win. Roach was looking to defend but the ball sneaks past his inside edge. And, it is clipping. That will be it. Sri Lanka complete a 72-run win and win the series 2-0.
2.30pm Gary Sobers and Michael Tissera hand the trophy to Angelo Mathews and with that, it is a wrap of our coverage of the Test series between West Indies and Sri Lanka. We will be back for the ODIs, beginning on November 1. Until then, take care
2.20pm Time for the presentation.
Milinda Siriwardana is the Player of the Match: 'I'm really proud and happy about my performance. I was just trying to bowl normally and the wicket helps.'
Rangana Herath is the Man of the Series: 'As a spinner and a bowler, we have to take the responsibility. The batsmen can hit three or four sixes, I don't mind, but we knew we had enough on the board because there was a bit in the pitch.'
Jason Holder: 'We fell just short in this Test, we didn't bat well enough in the second innings. We have got to be patient and patience is key. Whenever we came under pressure from the Sri Lankan bowlers, we succumbed to it. There is a lot we can take away from this series, we are still a young team and we have a lot to learn.'
Angelo Mathews: 'It was a hard-fought win, our bowlers were under constant pressure because our batsmen didn't deliver. I never had doubts about my bowlers, even when they were 80 for 1. Ranga has enough and more experience and he showed his masterclass yet again.'
2.10pm So, that brings us to the end of an intriguing and absorbing low-scoring encounter. Sri Lanka's bowlers were just a shade too good after the first hour on this last day. All it needed was a wicket and Milinda Siriwardana picked that up in his first over. Ever since, Sri Lanka have been completely dominant. West Indies' middle order could not find form or the boundary or partnerships and succumbed to some wonderful spin bowling. The hosts complete a comfortable series sweep in the end. The pitch was turning and bouncing throughout the Test and Sri Lanka found just enough runs to put it past the visitors.

what a shot. Terrific timing, great placement. Overpitched outside off, Roach creams a drive through covers. Good technique that.
Rj: "If WI had followed Warrican's method they would have won the match by now. Aggression should have been the need of the hour. Another collapse, another loss."
