Commentary

4.20pm And that is that. India wrap up a 3-1 series win. There's still one T20I to go on this tour - that will be on Sunday, with Chris Gayle set to play in front of his home crowd. Do join us for that. Until then, goodbye!

Ajinkya Rahane is the Player of the Series. "I really wanted to make it count. I wanted to enjoy my batting. Even in the Champions Trophy I was batting very well in the nets, and I really wanted to make it count here. This wicket was slightly better than the last two venues. The ball was coming nicely on to the bat - this was the best wicket to bat on. As I mentioned, I just wanted to enjoy my batting. I didn't want to put pressure on myself. One-day cricket is all about expressing yourself, and converting starts into a big one. Even in the future I want to enjoy myself and score some big ones."

Virat Kohli is the Player of the Match. "First and foremost the aim was to win the series, have a complete team performance. Special mention to Rahane, who's come back after a while and he was outstanding. Shikhar as well at the top. Kuldeep was outstanding. Really pleased with the team effort in general. Winning convincingly in a chase is always nice. For me it's all about getting the team across the line. It's not about stats - it's about looking at the scoreboard, looking at the bowlers, which ones to target, which ones to give respect to. I like taking control of the situation, stringing partnerships. Again Ajinkya was very good, Dinesh too. People are grabbing their opportunities - Shami playing one-day cricket after two years."

Jason Holder: "We were going well at the start, Kyle Hope was going really well. He got out at an unfortunate time, and we never got back after that. The guys have to take control of their own actions - the faster we learn on our feet, the better it will be. I sympathise with the batsmen, but they need to learn quickly, and use the off-season well. We knew the surface in Jamaica is pretty good for batting, and we didn't really capitalise. Three or four batsmen, we got in and got out. Our bowlers have been outstanding, we conceded one score of 300, but apart from that we did very well."

Ack: "Holder is a closet poet. He wanted Chase to bowl the last over of the chase to the king of chases."

Prasanna S: "Some Nostalgia stats. The last time Karthik and Kohli had a match-winning partnership was in the 2009 Champions Trophy against West Indies after India lost two early wickets. That time Karthik opened and Kohli at No.4 and I watched that game in an airport. Good to see two careers crossing paths again with a century partnership against WI.."

Shekhar: "@Wali..He missed a couple by a whisker... against Bangladesh in CT - 96* & against WI this series - out on 87."

Samir: "Day of Captains indeed. Joe Root 184* and Virat Kohli 111*. "

3.50pm A flat pitch, and West Indies' batting fell a long way short. Their batsmen got starts, but no one really made it count, and they really struggled to come to grips with India's spinners in the middle overs. A target of 206 wasn't going to test India in these conditions, which were nothing like the slow and low pitch they batted on in the fourth ODI in Antigua, and it was almost predictable that a Virat Kohli century would steer them home.

  • Kohli, spinners seal 3-1 series win

    Normal service resumed in the West Indies as the hosts' batsmen failed again - this time on a much better batting surface - and India chased 206 down with relative ease to seal the series 3-1

  • A series showdown at Sabina Park

    Sabina Park might possibly provide the best batting pitches in the Caribbean, but it has not been the luckiest ground for India. Can the ninth-ranked West Indies pull off a grand upset?
