Last Wicket: DPDN Dickwella 81(118)

Over 115.0  

LD Chandimal: It's been a really good five days. Credit goes to all the players, they stuck to their plans. It is always tough when you are batting in the fourth innings, but all the batters stuck to their game plan, credit goes to Asela and Dickwella. It is always a challenge to captain the side. The India series is going to be a tough challenge for us and hopefully the guys will do their best.
AG Cremer: Bit disappointing. Credit to Sri Lanka to chase 380 on a day five pitch. We were put under pressure in both innings early on, especially by Herath. The guys have not played enough Test cricket, so it is hard to make decisions. But proud of the boys. The ODI series is a high point and we brought that into this Test and fought hard. Everything has been amazing and it is one of my favourite places to visit.
Rangana Herath is Man of the series
Asela Gunaratne is the Man of the Match.
Sri Lanka won by 4 wickets and won the series with 1-0
