Lakmal to Holder, SIX, an absolutely monster six over midwicket seals the game and the series. . That was right in the slot, and it must have been close to a hundred metres. Mickey Arthur has a bit of a sour smile on his face, but he will be bitterly disappointed by how these three games have gone. Hugs in the Windies dressing room, and handshakes on the pitch

Lakmal to Holder, FOUR, edge loops over the keeper and races away for four. The luck going the hosts' way now. It was a clever slower delivery, and rather fooled Holder, but that's little consolation for Sri Lanka

Fernando to Pollard, SIX, the extra ball costs Sri Lanka, and Pollard's desire to hit a boundary has come to fruition. A full toss has finally been punished, clobbered over the long-on boundary all the way for six! That, you suspect, is game over, and whitewash sealed

Fernando to Pollard, (no ball) 1 run, there was a chance with that low full toss, but he can only muscle it to long-off, but oops, that's a no-ball and free hit! Huge no-ball, too, at an awful, awful time

Fernando to Holder, 1 bye, swing and a miss, but it's a little clumsy from the keeper. Once more, Pollard urges Holder to come across for a bye. He really wants to hit a boundary this over, you sense

Fernando to Pollard, 1 run, brilliant bowling. Absolutely clutch yorker that he can't get under, and Holder's back on strike

Ralph: "Pollard is playing a measured innings without any sort of rush. He knows that WI is just one six away."

Fernando to Pollard, 2 runs, another low full toss, and this time Pollard urges Holder to rush back for a second. It looks like he might want to target this over

Fernando to Holder, 1 run, tucked into the onside. West Indies content not to go for the big shot for now

Lakmal to Holder, no run, good delivery. Has bowled a number of full tosses but his yorkers keep looking menacing when he lands them

Tadjique Dyer: "To put this team under pressure u really need to score 300 consistently "

Lakmal to Bravo, OUT, he's gone, what a spectacular catch that was! Lakmal continues to send down full tosses like they're going out of fashion but Bravo can't quite get a hold of it properly. Karunaratne at extra cover puts in a dive, and plucks that ball out of the air. DO SL still have hope?

DM Bravo c Karunaratne b Lakmal 102 (167m 132b 5x4 4x6) SR: 77.27

Lots of you have picked up on a typo, eh?
