Commentary

India won by 81 runs (D/L method) | India Vs Sri Lanka Live Score, 6th ODI Match

Well that's about all we have for you today. The final is coming up in a day's time but before that is the start of The Ashes. Do join us for both. Until then cheers and goodbye.
Bhuvneshwar: 'Obviously proud to perform for my country. It helps my confidence. We wanted to do well as a bowling unit. I enjoyed bowling on this wicket. It was swinging and seaming a bit.'
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is the Man of the Match for his 4/8.
Kohli: 'Whne you have 3 good teams in the tournament, you never know what will happen. We did not focus on the rain coming in but just our skills. This team has shown a lot of character to bounce back like that. Proud of the way the biys have put in that effort. When me and Rohit batted, we decided to go slow. That worked well for us. We had wickets in the end. Rohit played a good knock up the order. The bowlers responded beautifully. I like to give the bowlers all the credit and we fielded well too.'
Mathews: 'It was a tough wicket to bat on. I thought the bowlers bowled brilliantly. The pitch was under covers for some time so batting second was difficult. We had nothing to lose. It is mentally and physically draining. Credit to the boys. We've played some good cricket to get to the final. Hopefully we beat India then.'
It's been quite a turnaround for India. After losing the first two league games in Jamaica they came back strongly to finish on top of the table. Wide smiles all around including Dhoni in the dressing room. Will he play the final? Kohli hinted so at the toss. We'll have to wait and see. For now though these two teams will meet again in the final. India going in with a bit of a psychological advantage after this win. Sad end to the tournament for the hosts West Indies. They have been knocked out. Hang on to hear what the captains have to stay at the presentation ceremony.
