Sri Lanka vs South Africa, 5th ODI, South Africa tour of Sri Lanka 2013

Commentary

Sri Lanka won by 128 runs | Sri Lanka Vs South Africa Live Score, 5th ODI

The entire Sri Lankan team comes forward to pose for the cameras. Lot of smiles all around. We'll leave you with that for the day. Hope you enjoyed it. Cheers and goodbye until next time.
Mathews walks up to collect the trophy. It is his first series win as a skipper. That's quite a special moment for him.
Angelo Mathews: 'I couldn't have asked for anything better. Dilshan and Thirimanne batted brilliantly. Unfortunately Dilshan could not get his 100. Sanga batted very well too. We have a good blend of seniors and juniors. While the seniors perform, we'll try to blood the youngsters. I'm sure the T20 series will be very exciting. On behalf of the Sri Lankan team I would like to thank the fans for their support.'
AB de Villiers: 'We played cricket against a team that was out of our league. We have to learn and improve. It's amazing when you lose, all these negative things come up. You tend to over-analyse things. Maybe that is what is needed. We have a young team and this has been a great experience. We need to be better prepared next time. There will be some freedom for me in the T20 series. We're a nation that won't give up. I'm still proud of our boys. We will come back stronger.'
Sangakkara: 'We had Thirimanne batting at 3. I think Dilshan and he provided a very good platform. The ball was coming onto the bat well. I try to target bowlers. If you're playing Sri Lanka, you need totals of above 260-270. My first series was a triangular against South Africa. They are the best side in Test cricket. I've enjoyed watching AB, Hashim, Morne and Steyn. They've been really good friends off the field as well. That has helped relations on the field. They're a fantastic bunch of guys. Our tram can be proud that we beat such a good team.'
Kumar Sangakkara is the Man of the Series for scoring 372 runs in the series.
Dilshan: 'I think they bowled really well. I got bogged down a bit. Little disappointed but these things happen. I've enjoyed the series. I know I can catch up afterwards in the powerplay so don't bother about the strike rate. I'm throughly enjoying my bowling as well.'
Dilshan is the Man of the Match for his 99. He picked a wicket as well.
End of a dismal series for South Africa. There's been little of note from them in this series. On the other hand, the hosts have looked quite a dominant force at home and showed enough hunger in even the dead rubber. Kumar Sangakkara, undoubtedly, has been the star of the series. The veteran set a Sri Lankan record for most runs in a bi-lateral series. Dilshan found form in the last two ODIs while the bowlers were consistent all-round. Stay tuned to hear from the captains in the presentation ceremony.
End of over 44, 2 runs (. . . 2lb W )
