And that will be all from us today. Join us for the final ODI from Jamaica on Thursday at 9 am local time. Till then this is Abhishek Purohit signing off on behalf of George Binoy who brought you the first innings. Cheers!

Anthony Martin is Man of the Match to loud cheers from the crowd. Martin: "The conditions I know very well, it helped me a lot. Thanks to the crowd for supporting me. I am going to do the best I can. I just decided to keep it tight and let the batters do what they wanted to do." Which they did, they kept imploding

Sammy: "We played a lot better today, we have been improving throughout this series. We posted 250, bowlers have been getting early wicket, today we handled it better. Since Simmons came back he has been our main run-getter. Pollard got runs down the order, we keep losing track in the middle. As long as we keep improving, we are still a young team. we showed a lot of character and good to come on the winning side. Russell is a total team man, I spoke to him and he told me, skipper I am going to give my best. He has a bright future, Bishoo as well, future looks bright. Similar situation compared to the Pakistan series now."

Raina: "Credit to Windies for batting well. We did not bat well at all to be honest. Our shot selection was wrong, we had no partnerships. Rohit was there but me and Yusuf got out at that time. Mishra and Ashwin bowled well for us, Ashwin got us the wicket of Pollard who was batting well."

Hang on for the presentation

That is the end of that. A spectacular implosion by India, where batsman after batsman tried to outdo the previous one with outrageous shot selection. Tiwary looked totally out of sorts, so nervous that he hesitated to even put poor deliveries away, Badrinath was sorted out by short ball after short ball till he succumbed, Rohit, Suresh and Yusuf fell to poor shots. India will want to forget this chase. West Indies have something to show for their efforts, at last.
