Rohit Sharma now lifts the winning trophy and the Indian team is seen rejoicing and posing for a team photo with the trophy!
Rohit Sharma, the Indian captain says that as a team whether they chase or they defend it does not matter, they wanted to tick all the boxes, and he is happy with the series and they got pretty much everything they wanted. Mentions that they do understand they are good while chasing, but most of the guys are missing from the team, and they have a young team. States that the biggest takeaway from the ODI series, was the guys who got an opportunity made it count, and also the bowlers did well in both the series. Informs that there are few guys missing from the team for the next tour, but there are other players who will get game time as well, and they have to keep one eye on the T20 World Cup also. He concludes by saying that Sri Lanka will be a different challenge, but they not looking at any oppositions they just want to concentrate on how they can play as a team and improve in different areas. Fielding is one area, they would like to improve upon.
Suryakumar Yadav is named as the PLAYER OF THE MATCH AND ALSO THE PLAYER OF THE SERIES! Suryakumar Yadav says that tonight he wanted to replicate what he did in the first game and it was very important for him to stay at the crease after Rohit got dismissed. Says that tonight was a perfect opportunity for him and is glad that everything worked out well. He adds that he is trying to keep things simple and try to do the same thing over and over again, be it on the pitch or in the nets. He says that one needs to just have a few quality net sessions and just believe in themselves. Lastly, he mentions that he is excited about the upcoming series.
West Indies skipper, Kieron Pollard says that they had the momentum till the 15th over, but they gave away 85 odd runs in the last 5 overs and lost the momentum there, but they did start the innings well and could not carry on. Mentions that there are some positives to take from the tour, Pooran returns to form which was good to see, and all the young players performed well in these conditions, Rovman Powell was excellent as well. States that all the players were given the opportunities and they put in all the hard work.
So, India have now made it 9 consecutive wins in T20I matches and have made short work of the 3-match T20I series against West Indies. With this victory, India now becomes the top-ranked side in the World in T20Is. Stay tuned for the Presentation...
Harshal Patel is down for a chat. He says that the bowlers need to have clarity at the end overs. One needs to know what delivery to bowl at the death. States that there was a bit of dampness in the wicket because of the weather today, which was making it difficult to bowl, apart from that there was no dew.
Shardul Thakur is up for a quick chat. He says that the ball was holding on to the wicket and they wanted to bowl fuller, as the batters had time to pull the short ball. Mentions that if he is doing the job for India at the death, he needs to know how it's done, he has done it for Chennai for four years now and will look to carry on the same and prepare well for the T20 World Cup as well. States that they have to mentally be tough and it's okay to be hit for boundaries, but they just have to think about the next ball. Says that everyone has to follow a process, he had a plan to bowl wide yorkers, and he stuck to it, no matter what.
It was the same old story for the visitors. The openers faltering, then Nicholas Pooran doing all the repair work alongside Rovman Powell and getting them into the match and then the middle order undoing all the hard work to make things difficult. This is not a pattern any team would want to follow and the Windies need to do a couple of things differently. Holder, Pollard and Chase, all of them seasoned players but just couldn't get going again. Pooran made it three half-centuries in a row in the series and he seems to be back to his best. He will once again feel a bit let down by the fact that he couldn't get his team over the line. Romario Shepherd did keep the hopes alive with a fiery cameo but the Indian bowlers just executed their deliveries brilliantly at the death. West Indies will now look to go back home and reflect on this tour and make the necessary adjustments in order to get better for the T20 World Cup later in the year.
It was Bhuvneshwar Kumar two nights ago and Harshal Patel has replicated his 19th over antics tonight to hand India a convincing win. Deepak Chahar gave the hosts the perfect start by picking up the Windies openers with a couple of beauties before he had to leave the field with an injury. India then were put on the back foot by Pooran and Powell but they roared back into the match. Everyone apart from Ravi Bishnoi and Avesh Khan got into the wickets column. Venkatesh Iyer covered Chahar's overs well and even got a couple of big wickets. Shardul Thakur was given a tap early on but showed his mental strength by coming back strongly at the death. But it was Harshal Patel who was the pick of the bowlers as he picked up 3 wickets and was miserly as well. All in all, a top bowling effort from the hosts.
A big performance at the death from Shardul Thakur and Harshal Patel has seen India clinch yet another close encounter and they do manage to complete the double clean sweep over West Indies. Once again the Windies falter at the final hurdle and round off a disappointing tour with a disappointing loss.
19.6 overs (0 Run) Another bumper, outside off. Hayden Walsh looks to pull but misses. India yet again hold on under pressure and win by 17 runs!
19.5 overs (0 Run) Back of a length, outside off. Hayden Walsh once again swings his bat but misses once again.
19.4 overs (0 Run) Tad shorter, slower again, outside off. Hayden Walsh looks to pull this one, but misses.
19.4 overs (1 Run) Wide! Fuller ball, wide of off. Hayden Walsh swings his bat but misses. Wide given!
Hayden Walsh is the last man in for West Indies. They need three maximums off three deliveries to take the game to a Super Over.
19.3 overs (0 Run) OUT! CAUGHT! A stunner by Rohit Sharma! That should be the game for India! A slower ball, full and outside off. Dominic Drakes tries to go over cover, but the ball goes off the bottom of the bat, and it lobs in the air towards Rohit Sharma at cover. Who dives forward to his right and takes a superb catch! West Indies 9 down now!
19.2 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Top shot! Fuller ball, outside off. Dominic Drakes drives it powerfully past cover for a boundary.
19.1 overs (0 Run) Slower ball, on a length, outside off. Dominic Drakes swings his bat but gets beaten. 23 off 5 balls now!
18.6 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! A low full toss, on the pads. Fabian Allen flicks it towards fine leg for a boundary. 23 runs needed off the last over now!
Who comes in next? It's going to be Dominic Drakes.
18.5 overs (0 Run) OUT! TAKEN! The 19th over generally is the most important over and Harshal Patel has just bowled a gem of an over so far. A loopy slower ball, full and outside off. This is dipping on the batter and even though Romario Shepherd is waiting for it, it is really difficult to get under it and generate the power to go big. Shepherd forces the big shot over extra cover but can only manage to lift it towards the cover region. Rohit Sharma over there takes a couple of steps back and pouches it comfortably. Is that the final nail in the Windies coffin?
18.4 overs (1 Run) This is excellent from Harshal Patel. He goes seam up this time, into the pitch and pushes it wider. Allen fetches and sort of half-pulls it towards deep mid-wicket for a single.
18.3 overs (0 Run) Slower ball, outside off. Fabian Allen swings at it but misses.
18.2 overs (1 Run) Slower ball, shorter on middle. Romario Shepherd pulls it towards deep mid-wicket for a single.
Right on the buzzer, Rohit Sharma decides to make use of the review left for an LBW decision. There's a huge gap between bat and pad and UltraEdge confirms the same. Ball Tracker shows that the impact is umpire's call and the ball is missing leg stump. The on-field decision of NOT OUT will stay. India lose the review but they had to go for it at this stage.
18.1 overs (2 Runs) TWO LEG BYES! NOT OUT! A full toss ball, on the pads. Romario Shepherd misses his heave and gets hit on the pads and the ball rolls towards third man. An appeal for LBW, but the umpire says no! India opts for a review! There's a huge gap between bat and pad, UltraEdge confirms this! Ball Tracker shows that the impact is the umpire's call and the ball is missing leg stump. The on-field decision stands. Also, the batters steal a leg bye. There was a throw at the non-striker's end but the ball misses the stumps. The batters steal an overthrow in return as well.
Harshal Patel (3-0-16-2) to bowl the all-important penultimate over.
17.6 overs (1 Run) Slower ball, around middle. Romario Shepherd drills it to long on for a single.
India are a bit behind the eight ball but a bit of saw dust is needed for the bowler's landing area and the Match Referee will allow this time to the bowling side.
17.5 overs (0 Run) Shorter ball, outside off. Romario Shepherd pushes it towards cover and he wants a single there, but he is sent back halfway down the wicket. A slight mix-up, but safe in the end. Rohit Sharma collects the ball, and throws it to the keeper, Ishan Kishan runs forward but slips on his way to the stumps. Romario Shepherd was no where in the picture but he survives!
17.5 overs (1 Run) Wide! Too short, wide of off. Romario Shepherd looks to cut this away but misses. Wide given!
17.4 overs (0 Run) Good-length delivery, shaping away, outside off. Romario Shepherd looks to go over cover this time but misses. An appeal for caught behind from Shardul Thakur, but Ishan Kishan says there was nothing on it.
17.3 overs (0 Run) Shorter ball, outside off. Romario Shepherd swings his bat at it but misses.
17.2 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Clever shot! On a length, outside off. Romario Shepherd cuts it past the fielder at short third man for a boundary.
Fabian Allen is the new man in.
17.1 overs (0 Run) OUT! CAUGHT! Shardul Thakur strikes now and gets rid of the man in form, Nicholas Pooran! Another fine innings by him comes to an end! A fuller ball, outside off. Nicholas Pooran gets low and looks to go over cover, but he gets a thick top edge high towards point. Ishan Kishan the man with the gloves on, runs ahead calls for it, and dives forward to take a sharp catch. Is this the turning point?
Shardul Thakur (2-0-22-0) comes back into the attack, presumably to bowl the 18th and 20th over.
16.6 overs (6 Runs) SIX! PUNISHED! Avesh Khan misses his length and serves a full toss, on middle. Romario Shepherd makes full use of it and heaves it way over deep mid-wicket for a biggie. 37 runs needed off 18 balls.
16.5 overs (1 Run) Another good ball! Yorker, around middle. Nicholas Pooran gets an inside edge onto his pads. The ball rolls towards point and the batters grab a single.
16.4 overs (0 Run) Good ball! A yorker, outside off. Nicholas Pooran tries to dig it out but misses.
16.3 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Crunched! Another fuller ball, outside off. Nicholas Pooran smashes it down the ground for a cracking boundary.

16.1 overs (1 Run) Well bowled! A yorker-length delivery, outside off. Romario Shepherd digs it out towards point for a single.
Avesh Khan (3-0-28-0) comes back in to finish his spell. Also, India need to be a bit quick here. They are an over behind and if they continue with this rate, they might be penalized in the final over by being allowed a fielder less in the deep. That could be a huge difference if this does go down to the wire.
15.6 overs (0 Run) Another dot ball! On a length, outside off, slower ball again. Nicholas Pooran stays in his crease and looks to guide this on the off side but misses once again.
15.5 overs (0 Run) An off-pace delivery, outside off, on a length. Nicholas Pooran hangs back and looks to cut this away but misses.
15.4 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Nicely done! On a length, outside off. Nicholas Pooran stays in his crease and slashes this towards deep point for a boundary.
15.3 overs (2 Runs) Yorker-length delivery, outside off. Nicholas Pooran pushes it towards deep cover for a brace. Fifty for Nicholas Pooran! That's his third fifty of the series! He is in sublime form.
15.2 overs (1 Run) Quicker this time, very full, on middle. Romario Shepherd drills it towards long on for a single.
15.1 overs (1 Run) Another off-pace delivery, fuller, on middle. Nicholas Pooran knocks it towards long on for a single.
