Well that brings to an end a fantastic series which was thoroughly entertaining. What next? One final game between South Africa and Australia tomorrow at 2130 IST before we move on to the ICC T20 World Cup. Till then, it's goodbye and cheers!

DARREN SAMMY is awarded the Man of the Series.

CHRIS JORDAN, for his all round performance is awarded the Man of the Match.

West Indies did wonderfully well to keep England to a 165 but got off to the worst start possible when the chase began. Smith was out of the very first ball of the innings and they just struggled from there on. England chipped in with regular wickets from one end as Lendl Simmons kept fighting at the other. He and Ramdin struck a substantial stand that got them back into the match but once Ramdin fell, Simmons could not get his team home despite a last gasp effort from Sammy. England picked up their first win after 5 successive T20I losses. Chris Jordan was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets as well as a great catch to go with his 4 biggies that he hit in the last over. Stay tuned for the presentation!

!

What a terrific end to this match and that of course draws curtains on this exciting series. West Indies might have won the series 2-1 but England have a morale boosting win in the final game which should give them some confidence before the T20 World Cup.

Jade Dernbach to Darren Sammy

He fails! A wide delivery outside off, Sammy thinks of letting it go, he should have let it go, it was a certain wide but somehow, gets his bat on it and deflects it to the point region. ENGLAND WIN BY 5 RUNS.
