11.35pm Imad took the new ball and dismissed Charles early. Tanvir, striking twice in two overs, and Hasan then burrowed through the WI batting line-up. Wahab Riaz bowled a Jekyll-Hyde spell, wides counterbalancing fiery bouncers. The regular loss of wickets, though, made the target of 161 look bigger. Narine mounted some late blows, but it only sugared the pill for West Indies. The 16-run win means Sarfraz maintains his 100% record as Pakistan captain. West Indies, meanwhile, have been cruelly exposed by the trying conditions.

Carlos Brathwaite, West Indies captain: We didn't come to the party as we liked to. It is what it is. In hindsight, 150 may have been manageable. If we had batted better in the first six-seven overs [what went wrong?], we just didn't turn up with the bat. As a result, Pakistan are series-winners. It is frustrating. We didn't come to the party with the bat and as a result we lost.

Sarfraz Ahmed, the Pakistan captain, is the Man of the Match: The conditions were tough because of the dew. The ball was slipping, but we finished it well. Latif has batted well, Imad and Nawaz impressed. I promoted myself and played positively. Credit goes to Malik for finishing the innings. It is a great sign for Pakistan cricket. Umar's celebration was nice [laughs].

That is all we have for you from this game. Thanks for tuning in. Do come back for the third and final T20I on Tuesday. Until then, goodbye and good night

Nikhil Mane: "Pakistan under Sarfraz Ahmed in T20Is - W W W #PAKvsWI

Rashid Nazir: "Tanvir should be given MOM for his 17 dots, where the other bowlers conceded 40+ runs"

Umair: "Perfect end to Umar's dab dance.. 3 catches and completed 3 steps."

Wahab Riaz to Narine, OUT

Pakistan seal the series, with one game to go. Umar finishes it off with the dab dance. Wahab flings a 148ks short ball on middle, gets big on Narine. He skies a catch to long-on running in. Arthur's frown turns into a smile
