1:41pm And that's all we have for you from our live coverage. We'll have plenty of post-match content coming your way. Don't forget to stick around for those. Have a good day!

Dinesh Chandimal: This was a really good series. The first game was a nightmare for the bowlers and this one was a nightmare for the batters. The guys executed our gameplans really well out in the middle. After the first game we thought the second pitch might be a turning wicket. We were surprised, because we have all the experienced spinners. Credit also goes to Roshen Silva who had an outstanding series - even Kusal Mendis and Dhananjaya. Also all the bowlers.

Roshen Silva: First of all I want to thank the almighty God for helping Chandimal win the toss on this wicket. We batted first and the rest is history. I thought this wicket was difficult so I just wanted to keep it simple - I just played my normal game. I think one of the strength's we have is the guys in the lower order never throw away their wickets. Even 20-30 runs is very valuable on this wicket. I hope and I pray that I can carry this forward for the rest of the career.

Roshen Silva is the Man of the Match and the Man of the Series.

Mahmudullah: Feeling really disappointed because we knew the pitch would get us a result. In this sort of a wicket you should cash in on the first innings. Their bowlers did the job really well, keeping the pressure on us every time we came out. Our bowlers [only] did well in patches. One positive was the intent from Mominul. He played spinners on the front foot as well as the back.

Sampath: "Roshen Silva should play in limited over cricket as well. He is a well composed batsmen! "

SudarshanaSL: "Difference between the two sides batting was Roshen who held batting together in both innigs unlike Bangladesh. So in this pitch MOM should be him rather than Akila."

Aamir Gadit : "Bangladesh lost their last 6 wickets for 23 runs. And 5/3 in the first innings. That's 11/26 both innings together. Shows exactly where they need to improve. "

Gayan Cool: "Congratulations herath.... age is not a barrier if heart is there "

Shernawaz: "Most wickets by right hand bowler Muttiah Murali and most by left hand bowler by Regana Herath. Both from same country."

1:18pm Sri Lanka win the series with this, by a 1-0 margin. They've won most sessions in the series, and pretty much every one in this match. Bangladesh barely had control through this game and the second innings ends much like the first - with an exaggerated collapse at the end. It's been indicative of their resolve throughout the game. Sri Lanka gave them nothing, and for most parts, they didn't face resistance. Roshen Silva's fifties in both innings, Kusal's counterattacking 68 in the first, and Dananjaya's eight wickets on debut are the key performances that have done this for Sri Lanka. Rangana Herath applied the finishing touches while breaking a world record in the process.

29.3HMRKB Herath to Taijul Islam, OUT, No run, taken at deep midwicket! Rangana Herath's 415 Test wickets are the most by a left-arm bowler in Tests. Feeds him on the slog sweep, tossing this outside off. He takes the bait, and hits it quite well, but he can't clear the fielder on the boundary.
29.2HMRKB Herath to Taijul Islam, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, good length at off stump, gets under this with the reverse sweep and slices it to the third man boundary.
29.1HMRKB Herath to Mustafizur Rahman, BYES, 1 run, tossed up outside off, swipes across the line and is beaten. Keeper fumbles.
End of over 29. 12 runs this over. 118/9 after 174 balls.

11.33am Eighty-three runs and four wickets in this session, then. A similar template to how each session in this Test has been. Sri Lanka the happier side at the end of the session. Wonder what the team talk in the Bangladesh camp will be. The hosts still need 282 runs. The visitors, another eight wickets. We'll be back in 40 minutes with the post-lunch session. See you then.

AhmedKhan: "So the 1st Test produces 50,000 runs and 100's for everyone including the physios, and this one produces what will surely be 40 wickets and a result in 3 days...that's, um, good?"

Khan Hasan: "A big score is long time due for mushi, hit it now man, BD need it today."
