10:52pm A grateful Shanaka lines up to lift the trophy on behalf of his team. There are some Lankan flags in the stands. A nice, warm end to the tour for the visitors. And that is also the end of our coverage tonight. Thanks for joining us and don't forget to look out for the post-match coverage. Have a good night!

Shanaka: It's really a good victory. We should thank the Pakistan people, they supported us, not just Pakistan. It's a big honour. All the players were bonded, that was the key to our success. Bonding is the key - they do the right things in the middle. There are no extraordinary players here - they're all equally talented, but the unity was the secret. If we play smart cricket, there's always a possibility to win. The decisions were taken smartly today, each and every one of us.

Sarfraz: I think we recovered well in the bowling, but we needed another good partnership in the middle. We knew if it gets more than 8-9 per over, it would get tough. We were subdued, we didn't express ourselves throughout this series. [Batting order] We've been using this line-up for a while. We just wanted to try out as many players as possible before Australia. We need to work a lot on all three fronts, especially fielding. We can't beat any team if we drop catches like that in the middle overs.

Hasaranga: Yes this is the best I've bowled. I tried to get wickets. My wrong'un is what I use to get wickets. I try to absorb the pressure by bowling as many dot balls as I can.

Wanindu Hasaranga is the Man of the Match and the Man of the Series.


Ahmad: "Thanks for comming SL. You deserved this win. "

Mustafa Moudi: "Congratulations to SL for their Unbelievable Performance. Nobody must have expected such a terrific outcome from a Second String Side. This is beginning of a New Era in Sri Lanka !!!"

Sarat: "wrist spinners are impact players in t20i's, Shadab Khan's below-par performance in this series must have been one of the reason for this Pak's failure in this series"

Faizan: "Baber and haris just consumes so many balls .....the reason why we lost today against a no. 8 team"

Mubbashir: "Probably one of the worst bits of cricket I've seen from Pakistan since ct17."

Aamir: "Sarfaraz failed in same pattern in all matches should have given chance up the order to specialist batsmen. ."

10:31pm Sri Lanka's infielders have run to grab onto stumps before that ball is even fielded. What a superb, superb end to this tour for them. Dasun Shanaka with a relieved smile as he leads his team off. His captaincy has been a revelation tonight. Used his bowlers aggressively and to perfection. He had a horrid time with the bat earlier, as did most most of his team-mates. But they've come back with force to defend a modest total - and to defend it by 13 runs. Oshada Fernando added to his international CV with a superlative innings on debut. Rajitha started off superbly, gave them nothing in the Powerplay. The wickets didn't come, but the others kept it tight as Pakistan's two solid batsmen looked to go about it their way. And then Wanindu came back on, and turned it on yet again. Such an exciting allrounder he's turning out to be. Three wickets and a catch at long-on. And he can hit them long too. There's much to take away for these youngsters tonight. Most important of all - they've beaten the No. 1 team 3-0 in their backyard. Whether young or old - this is the year Sri Lanka will keep springing surprises. Pakistan have lots to ponder. The approach to this chase was rather old-fashioned, and they left themselves nothing but swishing and swaying and panic in the end. 79 off 83 between their top three - questions must be asked. And they will be after such a comprehensive loss.

Madushanka to Wahab Riaz, SIX runs, crunches this over the bowler! Overpitched just outside off, not the greatest delivery, but some composure to send this there. Stood still and swung from underneath

Pakistan need at least three sixes to stay alive
