HIGHLIGHTS

  • 00:28 (IST)

    SIX! Pant plays it straight down the ground and it clears the boundary, thus completing a comfortable seven-wicket win for India and ensuring they sweep the series 3-0 - their fourth such series win in T20I cricket. 

  • 00:19 (IST)

    FOUR AND OUT! Kohli departs. He managed a boundary towards mid-wicket but the next ball he hits straight to Lewis at cover point and that's all she wrote. No celebrations from the West Indies camp as the Indian skipper has done the job. 

  • 00:10 (IST)

    TWO FOURS! Kohli begins the over with a boundary in the square leg area before Pant ends the over with a reverse sweep that gets him a boundary in the third man area. 27 needed in 4 overs. 

  • 00:06 (IST)

    FOUR, SIX! Kohli closes the face of his bat late and finds a boundary in the long-on area before Pant ends the over with a six towards long-off. India are absolutely cruising here. 

  • 23:24 (IST)

    OUT! Fabian Allen strikes in his first over and KL Rahul has to go. A flighted ball sees Rahul charge down but he misses the ball entirely and is easily stumped. India have lost both openers now. 

  • 23:11 (IST)

    Oshane Thomas shares the new ball with Cottrell and his first over is a good one, even if the bowler needed some treatment midway through the over. He ends the over with the wicket of Shikhar Dhawan as he plays one to Cottrell at short fine leg! 

  • 22:48 (IST)

    SIX AND SIX! Rovman Powell manages to get two maximums in the final over as West Indies end the first innings on 146-6. Not a bad total all things considered. India will have to bat well to chase that down. 

  • 22:28 (IST)

    Bowled! Saini gets rid of Pollard now and he celebrates hard. A slower ball did the trick as Pollard heaved hard but the lack of pace saw him miss it entirely and the ball rattles into his stumps. 

  • 22:23 (IST)

    TWO SIXES! Pollard is on fire. Slams a full toss from Krunal over the ropes to bring up his half-century before he goes down town on an overpitched delivery. He needs to stay till the end if West Indies are to post a competitive total. 

  • 22:15 (IST)

    OUT! Pooran goes for the big shot off Saini but only gets a thick edge that Rishabh Pant does well to hang on to. Saini gets the needed breakthrough and West Indies are in trouble again. 

00:28 (IST)

SIX! Pant plays it straight down the ground and it clears the boundary, thus completing a comfortable seven-wicket win for India and ensuring they sweep the series 3-0 - their fourth such series win in T20I cricket. 

00:27 (IST)

A good over from Cottrell delays the inevitable. His over goes for just 3 runs and India now need just another 3 in the final over to complete a dominant series win in the Caribbean. 

00:22 (IST)

Pant is not relenting here. He manages to get a six with a well-time flick off the pads and then ends the over with a single to keep the strike. India are closing in on a series whitewash. 

00:19 (IST)

FOUR AND OUT! Kohli departs. He managed a boundary towards mid-wicket but the next ball he hits straight to Lewis at cover point and that's all she wrote. No celebrations from the West Indies camp as the Indian skipper has done the job. 

00:15 (IST)

FOUR! Pant ends the over with a flick shot that flies to the boundary and brings up his half-century. India now need 18 in the last 3 overs and West Indies look down and out. 

00:10 (IST)

TWO FOURS! Kohli begins the over with a boundary in the square leg area before Pant ends the over with a reverse sweep that gets him a boundary in the third man area. 27 needed in 4 overs. 

00:06 (IST)

FOUR, SIX! Kohli closes the face of his bat late and finds a boundary in the long-on area before Pant ends the over with a six towards long-off. India are absolutely cruising here. 

00:00 (IST)

Kohli manages to survive skying one as it bounces in front of an onrushing Pollard but the next ball sees him connect well and he gets a four as the ball bounces just before the rope in the deep extra cover region. 

23:56 (IST)

Narine's third over goes for just the 5 runs. Brathwaite then throws the ball to Keemo Paul whose first over then goes for 9, including a six from Pant over long-off. India need 62 runs in 7 overs. 

23:47 (IST)

Brathwaite comes on to bowl his first over of the innings and goes for 9 runs, including a boundary that came via a glorious Kohli cover drive. India are going along at a good pace now. 

23:44 (IST)

Allen and Narine follow up with 2 tight overs, giving away 4 runs apiece in their overs. India are 62-2 with half the overs done. They're in a good position to push on from here and win it. 

23:37 (IST)

Sunil Narine comes on to bowl but his first over goes for 9 runs, including Pant late cutting him for a boundary on the third ball of the over. India are chugging along nicely here. 

23:33 (IST)

Kohli gets a boundary thanks to a wonderful late cut off Allen. At this rate both batsmen look comfortable but they will need to bat deep in order to give India a good chance of winning the match. 

23:30 (IST)

Rishabh Pant is the new man in and he wastes little time getting going, managing a boundary in the third man region off Thomas. India end the powerplays at 34-2 and still need another 113 runs to win. 

23:24 (IST)

OUT! Fabian Allen strikes in his first over and KL Rahul has to go. A flighted ball sees Rahul charge down but he misses the ball entirely and is easily stumped. India have lost both openers now. 

23:21 (IST)

Rahul has started well thus far. Need's to carry on from here. 

23:16 (IST)

Cottrell's second over isn't much better than his first as he goes for 8 runs this time around. Rahul got a boundary off him when he strayed down leg side. He needs to do better. 

23:11 (IST)

Oshane Thomas shares the new ball with Cottrell and his first over is a good one, even if the bowler needed some treatment midway through the over. He ends the over with the wicket of Shikhar Dhawan as he plays one to Cottrell at short fine leg! 

23:04 (IST)

KL Rahul manages to get a six off Sheldon Cottrell's third ball but other than that it's nothing on offer. India 6-0 after the first over. 

22:48 (IST)

SIX AND SIX! Rovman Powell manages to get two maximums in the final over as West Indies end the first innings on 146-6. Not a bad total all things considered. India will have to bat well to chase that down. 

22:42 (IST)

SIX! Bhuvneshwar's 3rd over was going well till the final ball when Fabian Allen dragged a six past Krunal Pandya at long-on to ensure an expensive end to the over. West Indies 130-6 with one over left. 

22:37 (IST)

First wicket for Rahul Chahar is a biggie. 

22:28 (IST)

Bowled! Saini gets rid of Pollard now and he celebrates hard. A slower ball did the trick as Pollard heaved hard but the lack of pace saw him miss it entirely and the ball rattles into his stumps. 

22:23 (IST)

TWO SIXES! Pollard is on fire. Slams a full toss from Krunal over the ropes to bring up his half-century before he goes down town on an overpitched delivery. He needs to stay till the end if West Indies are to post a competitive total.  

22:15 (IST)

OUT! Pooran goes for the big shot off Saini but only gets a thick edge that Rishabh Pant does well to hang on to. Saini gets the needed breakthrough and West Indies are in trouble again. 

22:12 (IST)

Washington's third over goes for 8; it's been an expensive day in the office for him thus far. Pandya's second over goes for 7 runs, which isn't bad given they were all singles and a wide. 

22:05 (IST)

Sundar too is facing the heat as he gets hit for six on the first ball of his second over and he bowls a wide thereafter. Some good running sees them collect 12 runs overall from the over. Krunal Pandya comes on after that and his first over was going well but the last ball is hit for six by Pooran! 

21:58 (IST)

Chahar is facing the heat on debut as he is hit for two sixes in his second over by Pollard. The youngster will need to do better than tossing it up to a batsman who waits for balls in his arc. 

21:55 (IST)

Spin from both ends now as Rahul Chahar is thrown the ball and his first over goes for eight, including one boundary from Pooran. Now Washington Sundar comes on and his over costs just three. 

21:48 (IST)

Chahar's third over is a good one that goes for just 4 runs. The batsmen are looking to play him out at this point, understandably so given he's already got 3 wickets.

PREVIEW: Having already clinched the three-match T20I series, Team India will aim to go for a clean sweep while trying to test its bench strength when they take on West Indies in the final match at the Providence Stadium here on Tuesday. After registering a four-wicket win in the first T20I, India on Sunday secured a 22-run win by the DLS method in the second T20I in Florida, thereby clinching the series. After Sunday's win, skipper Virat Kohli hinted that he might experiment with the line-up in Tuesday's game.

"Winning is always going to be a priority. But sealing the series gives the chance to bring few guys in. Idea is always going to be to win first. But winning the first two games, gives the cushion," skipper Kohli had said. Chahar brothers, Deepak and Rahul, and Shreyas Iyer -- who till now haven't got a chance to play -- are likely to get a place in the playing XI in Guyana.

With wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant failing in the first two matches, it might be possible that K.L. Rahul could be roped in his place. Also, Bhuvneshwar Kumar could be rested to give Deepak a crack while Rahul could replace either Krunal Pandya or Washington Sundar. On the other hand, Windies -- who have already lost the series -- will look to play for lost pride and end the three-match rubber on a high, before taking on the Men in Blue in the three ODIs and the subsequent two-Test series.

Squads:

India: Virat Kohli (Captain), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Krunal Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Washington Sundar, Rahul Chahar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Saini

West Indies: John Campbell, Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard, Rovman Powell, Carlos Brathwaite, Keemo Paul, Sunil Narine, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, Anthony Bramble, Andre Russell, Khary Pierre.
