Hang on for post-match quotes from the captains.

Dhoni: "We should have showed bit more respect to the bowlers. It was swinging early on. We just went with our strokes and paid for it. Me and RP got some partnership going, other wise it would have been embarassment. We cannot just depend on one man to score runs each time [Yuvraj Singh]."

Gayle Glad to square the series. Ravi Rampaul and Taylor bowled well. There was some moisture and Taylor and Ravi used it well and got it to swing. You have to give credit to Dhoni who batted well with RP Singh."

Man of the match is Ravi Rampaul : "I have been working hard. It was a good effort today. I bowled well and picked up couple of wickets. It was a good return to international cricket. I had a good domestic season. As I said I have been working hard. Today I showed the selectors what I am capable of. I bowled a bit more fuller and got swing."

That's it from us. Thanks for logging on. Good bye and good luck.

Harbhajan Singh to Morton, SIX runs, Morton swings the flighted delivery to long-on stands and pumps his fist. West Indies have leveled the series in style. Victory easily achieved after they had scythed through the Indian batting line-up. Dhoni resisted valiantly and found support from RP Singh but it only delayed the inevitable. Congrats West Indies.

END OF OVER:
