Right then, two down, and one more to go. It has been a topsy-turvy tour so far with Australia winning the T20I series 2-1 and then Sri Lanka making a strong comeback to clinch the ODI series 3-2. But now it's time for the ultimate test as the two sides gear up for a two-match Test series starting on the 29th of June. The first Test will be played in Galle and play will begin at 10 am IST (4.30 am GMT) but our build-up will begin much sooner. Do join us then. Till then, take care and goodbye!
Dasun Shanaka then goes on to pick up the series trophy and his team members join him on the podium to celebrate. As the trophy is lifted, the crowd can be heard chanting 'Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka,' quite vociferously.
Dasun Shanaka, captain of Sri Lanka says, that it is disappointing to have lost the match but they need to keep pushing themselves and the crowd has been brilliant. Adds that they took the momentum from the last T20I game into the ODI series and almost won the first ODI but were able to get on a roll after that. Mentions that he is happy with the efforts of his players, especially Kusal Mendis and is happy to see him back in form and then goes on to thank a few more players for their efforts. Adds that the crowd deserves a lot of applause because they always believed in the team and then goes on to applaud the Australian team, the staff, and also the groundsmen.
The Australian skipper, Aaron Finch is down for a quick chat. He says that the series was hard-fought, but he credits Sri Lanka for the way they played and adds that Sri Lanka deserved to win. Mentions that most of their players got the starts but they were not able to put big partnerships. They did get partnerships of 40 and 50 runs but they are not enough. Further adds that going forward they need to maximize the middle overs. But he is pleased with how the team performed in this final ODI. Concludes by thanking all the fans, and says they have been amazing.
Kusal Mendis (249 runs in 5 matches) is the PLAYER OF THE SERIES for scoring the most runs in the series! He says that he is happy to have performed for the team and is happy that they were able to win the series. Adds that it is an important series victory especially given the World Cup coming up next year. Ends by saying that his role in the team is quite clear.
Chamika Karunaratne (75 runs off 75 balls) is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH for his valiant effort even though he ended on the losing side. This is something we don't see that often in cricket but such was the importance of his innings in this game. Karunaratne joins Roshan Abeysinghe for a chat. He says that he is very happy after this knock only because he has not been performing with the bat but he always believed in himself and he knew today was his day. Adds that he wanted to only rotate the strike, and keep batting till the end, they wanted to get 200 on board and he further adds that Pramod Madushan supported him really well from the other end. Concludes by thanking all the fans for their support and also thanking the Australian team to tour Sri Lanka in such difficult times.
The presentation ceremony...
Earlier in the game, after opting to bat first, Sri Lanka were never ever allowed to get off the blocks and the Australian bowlers just kept on picking wickets at regular intervals. Josh Hazlewood was brilliant at the top of the order as usual and Matthew Kuhnemann too bowled really well. With Sri Lanka on course of being bundled out for less than 100, Chamika Karunaratne took on the mantle and put on a brilliant display with the bat to score 75 runs and he was well-supported by debutant Pramod Madushan. The hosts did get past 150 but with the depth, Australia have in their batting lineup, they were able to get rid of early batting woes to go on and win the match.
Sri Lanka had a modest total on the board but were able to make a match out of it and at one point, they were even in control of the game. After starting with pace, Dasun Shanaka brought in spinners from both ends, and Maheesh Theekshana along with Dunith Wellalage bowled in tandem and never let the Aussies have an easy time. In the middle overs though, the other spinners weren't just able to pick up wickets even though the required rate was kept in check. Dunith Wellalage came back in to pick up two more wickets but in the end, Sri Lanka just didn't have enough runs on the board and were handed a comprehensive defeat.
Australia needed just 161 runs to win, a brilliant opportunity for them to end a disappointing ODI series on a high. The job however became all the more difficult when both openers fell inside the first three overs. After that, it kept on getting worse and at one point they were 50/4. Then came a match-saving partnership worth 51 runs between Marnus Labuschagne and Alex Carey which got the visitors a bit ahead in the game. A couple of more wickets fell but Carey stayed at the crease and had brilliant support from Cameron Green at the other end. The pair made sure that they saw their side over the line safely.
It has been a hard-fought contest but it is Australia who have shown grit and determination to get over the line, thanks to a brilliant match-winning knock from Alex Carey. The five-match ODI series ends 3-2 in favor of Sri Lanka. Also, there is a huge chant of Australia from the crowd, showing their gratitude to the touring side. Aaron Finch is seen leading the response as he and his men take a round of the stadium soaking in the applause from the crowd in the R. Premadasa.

NOT OUT! A peach of a delivery! Tosses this one up, full in length, the ball lands around off, grips and spins away outside off. Alex Carey leans to drive this but he misses. Kusal Mendis grabs the ball and whips the bails off. The umpires check for the stumping here and the replay shows that Alex Carey's back foot was well inside.
Is that stumped? Alex Carey seems to have raised his foot for a split second but did the bails come off at that time? It is sent upstairs and the third umpire is first checking UltraEdge. There's a flat line as the ball passes the bat. The side-on angle is then checked and Carey's back leg is grounded when the bails are taken off. NOT OUT is the decision on the big screen.

Dunith Wellalage To Josh Inglis
Huge appeal for LBW from the bowler but Inglis is a bit too down the track for the umpire to give that out. On a length and on off, Inglis looks to use his feet but has to check his shot. Inglis misses the block and gets hit on the pads. The replay shows that if Sri Lanka had reviewed it, it would have been curtains for Josh Inglis, twice inside 5 overs that they have not taken the review whcih would have gone in their favour.

Huge turn again! On a fullish length and outside off, Mitchell Marsh looks to punch it off the back foot but misses and pinged on the pads. Sri Lanka think about the review but the impact seems to be outside the line of the off stump.

Dunith Wellalage To David Warner OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! An absolute stunner from Danushka Gunathilaka and both the Aussie openers are back in the hut early. This is tossed up on off stump, David Warner uses his feet to negate the turn but doesn't quite get to the pitch of the ball. Warner goes through with the shot and hits it really hard to the left of the man at mid off. Danushka Gunathilaka flies to his left and just pouches it out of thin air. Gunathilaka has hurt himself in the fall but Dunith Wellalage gets a wicket in his first over. Unfortunately, Danushka Gunathilaka is taken off the field as his shoulder seems to be in a world of pain.

Almost chopped on! Dunith Wellalage starts off with the arm-ball on middle and leg. Mitchell Marsh backs away looking to cut but the ball slides on and goes off the inside edge, onto the boot and into the keeper's gloves. The ball did hit the ground and hence Marsh is safe.
Seeing the ball turn so much, Dasun Shanaka has opted to bring a spinner from the other end as well. Dunith Wellalage comes into the attack.

Maheesh Theekshana To Aaron Finch OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! Maheesh Theekshana does get his man and draws first blood here. A touch fuller and spinning in from outside off. Aaron Finch gets a big stride forward and looks to sweep but the ball goes off the gloves and then off his shoulders as well, looping up around first slip. Charith Asalanka over there takes a simple catch and Finch starts walking off. Sri Lanka have the early breakthrough.

On a length, turning in from outside off. Aaron Finch looks to work it leg side but misses. The ball goes off the pads and loops up towards square leg where it is pouched. Appeal for a catch but it is turned down. Dasun Shanaka has gone upstairs. The third umpire checks the replay and on first glance, the ball seems to be pretty far away from the bat and that is confirmed by the UltraEdge as well. The LBW is also checked. Ball Tracking shows that the ball is going a long way down leg. NOT OUT!
