The bowlers set the game up for Sri Lanka with an outstanding effort in the field, restricting India's powerful batting lineup to just 130 for four.
Only Virat Kohli, as always, could do anything with the bat, while Yuvraj Singh struggled in the middle to get any kind of flow going.
After a final period of play in the first innings, where Sri Lanka bowled brilliantly to a plan, leaving the India batsmen clueless, the final score of 130 was never going to be enough to stop Sri Lanka from finally winning a World Cup after so many close shaves.
Tillakaratne Dilshan and Mahela Jayawardene played their hand with the bat, but it was Kumar Sangakkara, with some help from Thisara Perera, courtesy a few sixes, that made the chase look simple, with some typically elegant touches and boundaries.
In the end, despite a gallant bowling effort from the India bowlers, they just did not have enough of a score to defend, as Sangakkara guided Sri Lanka to 132 for four for a comprehensive six-wicket win.
The celebrations were expectedly emotionally charged, as Jayawardene and Sangakkara were given the perfect send-off in their final T20 international game.
