Lahiru Thirimanne - 2: Fell twice to Anderson with the new ball to total just 28 runs for the series, and with a Test match average currently under 20 has plenty of work to do to establish himself at this level.
Tillakaratne Dilshan - 5: Contentious second innings dismissal showed up limitations of DRS and meant his wait for a Test hundred extends to 21 innings. Won't be signing up for KP's Switch Hit fan club. Bowled well enough to suggest a bid for all-rounder status would not be unwarranted.
Kumar Sangakkara - 2: Fell to his second successive 1st innings golden duck and is in danger of becoming Anderson's bunny. Undone by a beauty by Swann second time around to complete a dismal series for the man that began it is the world's top ranked batsman.
Mahela Jayawardene - 9: Produced another masterpiece to follow up his big hundred in Galle and then resisted again in the 2nd innings before even he was unable to escape a ripper from Swann.
Thilan Samaraweera - 7: As in Galle, got going in both innings before losing his wicket when a big hundred looked to be in the offing.
Angelo Mathews - 7: Came in after injury prevented his participation in Galle and proved that he can adapt his style to the long-form of the game with a patient fifty in the 1st innings and a similarly sedate 46 second time around.
Prasanna Jayawardene - 5: Solid again with the gloves but no heroics this time with the bat as he fell for single figure scores in both visits to the crease.
Suraj Randiv - 4: Dealt with contemptuously by Pietersen and was unable to reprise his impressive performance at Galle as England's batsmen played him much more confidently this time.
Dhammika Prasad - 4: Performed admirably as a nightwatchman opener in the 2nd innings but whilst tidy proved mostly unthreatening with the ball.
Rangana Herath - 8: Bagged his third six wicket haul in a row but lacked the support at the other end he had received in Galle.
Suranga Lakmal - 2: Disappointing with the ball - lacked threat, didn't take a wicket and went at nearly four runs per over.
