4.05pm And that is it from our coverage of the T20 series. Thanks for tuning in throughout its course. We'll join you shortly for the ODI series. Have a good evening.

Shadab Khan is the Man of the Series. Took the pace off as opposed to yesterday, he says, on advice of the coach.

Sarfraz: Credit goes to the players. The bowlers did the job for us. We had a plan to use Shadab after six overs and Hasan also came in with his inswing. We fielded well, there are many young players in this team. Looking forward to the ODI series.

Carlos: We just batted poorly. Whatever you do, first or last, you've to do it well. We didn't do that. We decided to set a target of 150 and we didn't even get close. Those extra 20 runs cost us in the back end of this game. Our rotation of strike has actually improved, but if batsmen keep getting out, we take time to settle. The back end of the line-up was exposed too early and that cost us. Overall in the series, we progressed. Kesrick and Badree were positives.

Hasan Ali is the Man of the Match.The plan was to bowl wicket-to-wicket , he says.

3.41pm Pakistan stretched it till the 19th over, but this is a comfortable victory. A dominating one, in fact. They gave West Indies nothing with the ball and then capitalized with a typically measured chase from the top order. Ahmed Shehzad's fifty was measured and classy for the most part, while Babar Azam cannot be anything other than elegant. Neither of them batted through till the end though, and that will disappoint them.
For West Indies, the meetings will be sombre and intense. They played 66 dot balls in their innings and strike rotation was not an aspect of their game plan at all. Not good enough after losing the toss, despite the high quality of Pakistan's bowling. Back with the presentation in a bit.

Talha Hameed: "Most runs [Babar Azam 137], Most wickets [Shadab Khan 10], the series [3-1] all belongs to Pakistan."

Holder to Shoaib Malik, FOUR runs, and that's it. Low full toss outside off, hangs low, makes room and lifts it over the off side infield to find the point boundary. And that's the series, 3-1 to Pakistan
18.5
1
Holder to Sarfraz Ahmed, 1 run, takes a suicidal run and survives. Full at off stump, taps it straight to extra cover and takes off for a run where there shouldn't be one. Lewis shies at the non-strikers and misses as he he's ambling some 5 yards away
18.4

Holder to Shoaib Malik, 1 run, in the blockhole at off stump, ugly swipe across the line, thick inside edge to deep square and Malik is now the second-highest run-getter in T20s for Pakistan with 1621 runs. Umar Akmal is above him at 1690.

Holder to Shoaib Malik, 2 runs, bouncer at the chest, whips it late to get it to the right of fine leg, who runs across and acrobatically keeps it in
