That's all from our side. See you soon.

Andrew Balbirnie: "We were outclassed today but if you lose wickets in clusters, that doesn't help. We will take positive from this series. Guys will learn from it ahead of the T20 World Cup."

Kieron Pollard is the Man of the Series. "Sometimes the team requires you to come out of your comfort zone and you have to step up," he says. "We need to get early wickets, we cannot have teams get to 40, 50 in not time. I think we need to improve in that area. I have played a lot of cricket, it's a lot of things that goes into bowling and that comes by playing a lot of cricket. Bravo has done that as well and we want youngsters to learn that too. It's a small ground and it was important we pulled things back [after the initial onslaught]. We showed great intensity yesterday but that's one are for me that why cannot we show the same intensity day in and day out. We love to see Simmons in that sort of mindset, a little man but he packs a punch. He took his opportunity today, he was dropped early on but he continued and finished the game."

Lendl Simmons is the Man of the Match. "It was a goo surface, a proper batting surface with the ball coming onto the bat nicely," he says. "I have the freedom to go and express myself. I missed out on the last World Cup because of injury but I am looking forward to the one this year."

9.23pm A thumping win for West Indies, set up by some canny bowling from Pollard and Bravo as they level the series 1-1. Simmons and Lewis then ensured the hosts romped home with nine wickets and as many overs to spare. There was some brutal hitting, especially from Simmons, as the openers added 133 for the first wicket. Fittingly, the winning shot too was a six.

Pooran now. One slip

Simi Singh to Lewis, OUT, tossed up outside off, looks to slog sweep it and finish the game but gets a top edge and Wilson settles under it. Too late for Ireland though

West Indies only one hit away now
