Scorer: Chandan Duorah | Commentator: Varun Shetty

10:48pm And that is all from us. Thanks for joining.

Finch: It was pretty clinical. The way that the bowlers set up the last two games was outstanding. Every game is a challenge, so it was important to bring out our best. When you've got two spinners in your side in Australia, that's different for us. Those two did really well. [Decision to play two spinners] It was unanimous. As a package, Agar brings so much.

Dickwella: (standing in for Malinga) Everything okay with Malinga, he must be in the dressing room.
We haven't performed to standards. We've learnt a lot in this series we couldn't even compete. Nuwan Pradeep's performances was a positive and also the fielding.

Warner: Importantly for us as a team it's fantastic. On the personal front it's been good to churn out some runs. The bowlers made it easy. It helps when you're chasing a small total. Good momentum, from here we go to play Pakistan at the SCG.

David Warner is Man of the Match and Man of the Series.

10:30pm Warner finishes unbeaten in the series. And that is another comprehensive win for Australia; the 3-0 scoreline tells it all. Sri Lanka have barely had a moment of dominance all series, and that didn't change tonight. The batting was improved, but not lethal, while it was much the same story with the ball.

Pradeep to Warner, FOUR runs, finished with a boundary! Attempted slower yorker it seems. Ends up as a leg-stump full toss. He holds his balance and caresses this to the long leg boundary

Pradeep to Warner, no run, yorker at middle stump, jammed to midwicket

Pradeep to Turner, 1 run, full and into the pads. Stays tall and clips it down to fine leg

Pradeep to Turner, no run, length on off stump, defended on the front foot

James: "Didn't Warner have a good world cup (in England) followed by a poor Ashes (in England)? Limited overs form doesn't translate into test form."

END OF OVER:
17 | 8 Runs | AUS: 140/3 (3 runs required from 18 balls, RR: 8.23, RRR: 1.00)

Malinga to Warner, 2 leg byes, slower ball at a length on leg stump. Looks for the flick and deflects this in front of fine leg off the pad. Calls early for the second
