that'll do! Banged in short, on the legs, a violent pull behind square to seal the contest with five wickets to spare!
4.47pm Right, that'll do for today. Congrats to West Indies, have a read of Alan Gardner's report, and we'll see you again on Wednesday for the first T20I.
Kieron Pollard, West Indies captain: "Very pleased, we wanted to play that game, the way the guys went out and did it, credit must go to the bowlers, and then Evin Lewis finishing up with that hundred. All in all very happy to be winning 3-0 and going level with Sri Lanka on points [in the ICC rankings]."
Andy Balbirnie, Ireland's captain. "We've managed to get in but not kick off, we were outclassed today but we can take improvements from the three games. We don't have the quickest bowlers in the world or the biggest turners, but we can be disciplined. The second game was a big positive, we just didn't have that composure."
The Player of the Series is ... Evin Lewis. No surprise there either! "It's very important to me to give myself a chance, if I score fifty I try to score a hundred."
The Man of the Match is Evin Lewis. No surprise there. Let's hear from him: "All the hard work I've put in in the nets has paid off. The wicket today wasn't spinning as much as the last game, I played as much as possible off the front foot and it paid off. I've been trying to open up a bit more to play more down the ground. It's paying off. This was an opportunity for my first hundred in the Caribbean, and it's great to get a series win. I've been hungry for runs."
4.32pm This tour is far from over for Ireland, there's still the three T20s to come, starting here on Wednesday, and continuing with back-to-back contests in St Kitts. But given the mood Lewis and co have been in ...
4.28pm And so ends West Indies' first home ODI series win since Bangladesh in 2014. And it's an emphatic 3-0 clean sweep to boot. Pooran finishes on 43 not out, a fine supporting role to Evin Lewis's superb century. Ireland had their chances in the second game, but they were outclassed when it mattered in matches one and three.

Rahul Sargam : "Check 2.5 and tell Alan that he needs to pass this to the Lewis what I had said or if you can, Lewis should thank me here. Come on andrew you can do that for me buddy, I'll make sure as soon as you come in india I'll treat you with a great hospitality bro :P" Well, I'll do anything for free B&B!

Off Lewis troops, head bowed in disappointment, but he's done his job and more. Another fine knock to add to his 99 not out in the opening game

banged in short, a half-cock long-hop but Lewis doesn't mind that! Slapped across the line and clean through midwicket to bring up his third ODI hundred! West Indies are home and hosed
Nick P: "I've decided Lewis enjoys making others wait for him. It's inexplicable otherwise."

Jerk Chicken : "If Lewis doesnt get his century in this over, he cant blame Pooran " Well, he probably can now...
pounded down the ground to long-off, he'll get them in singles, lad
Pooran has got the memo, sturdy defence to give his team-mate all the time he needs
Andrew: "I think there's enough for a fifty and a hundred or is my maths wrong?" There is, just. But it might involve someone winning with a six with scores level!
