    So that is it from this series Australia have started their summer with a bang! This is just the start though as Pakistan now come as the visitors. The Men in Green come for 3 T20Is and 2 Tests starting with the shortest format. The 1st T20I between them will be played at SCG, Sydney on 3rd November, Sunday. That game will begin at 1430 local (0330 GMT). Sri Lanka meanwhile will have time to have a relook at themselves before their next assignment begins. Hope you enjoyed the coverage as much as we had bringing it to you. We will see you for Pakistan's tour of Australia. Till then, adios!

    Aaron Finch says it was nice and they were very clinical. States the bowlers set the last two games up really good and they were exceptional. Further adds every game is a different challenge and they look to give their best no matter what. Mentions he is really pleased to win 3-0. Also tells when the backs are against the wall you need experienced players to stand up and they were lucky they did. Tells the spinners were excellent and the quicks also gave them important wickets. States Ashton Agar is a complete package, he can bat, field and bowl. Also mentions Warner was outstanding, it is excellent if you remain not out throughout. Ends by saying he is looking forward to facing Pakistan.

    Sri Lankan skipper, Lasith Malinga is not there for the chat so it will be Niroshan Dickwella who will have a chat instead of him with Isa Guha. Dickwells confirms that everything is right with Malinga. On the series, Niroshan says they did not perform to their best and that is the reason they are on the losing side. Dickwella says they learnt a lot but also admits that they did not come close to Australia. On the positives, Dickwella says that Nuwan Pradeep and Lakshan Sandakan were good with the ball. On where they are headed next, Dickwella informs us that the Sri Lankan team will once again travel to Pakistan in Decemeber but this time for Tests.

    For his unbeaten 57 and his overall performance in the series, David Warner has been named the Man of the Match and also the Man of the Series. Warner says on a personal front it is fantastic to get runs. Credits the bowlers for their performance. Tells if the chasing score would have been big then he might have looked to play more risky shots but it was not hence he could play cautiously. Warner tells he is ready to face Pakistan in SCG as that will be a different challenge.

    Stay tuned for the presentation.

    Earlier in the day, the Sri Lankans put in their best performance with the bat in this series. Perera was the hero for them with a half ton. However, Australia were still the happier side after the break as their bowlers did an exceptional job with Kane Richardson leading the pack.

    The Lankan bowling was excellent to begin with! They hardly gave away any runs in the Powerplay but it is their fielding which let them down as they dropped two catches. After the first six though, the Australian batters took the attack to them and once they got into their own, the Lankans had no chance at all.

    A convincing win for Australia, a convincing series win actually. They have probably whitewashed Sri Lanka without breaking a sweat. 143 was never going to be enough and that proved to be the case. Warner and Finch set the platform with a 69 run stand for the first wicket. Both were dropped once but if you put down quality players, they would always make you pay and that is what the two did. Finch though did not make most of his start but did his job. Smith and McDermott did not contribute a lot but Warner stayed there till the end and ensured side gets over the line with ease.
