Scorecard summary
West Indies 103/5(20 overs)
Pakistan 108/2(15.1 overs)

10.52pm Pakistan's most convincing win this series, and they have had two before this. Clinical performance from Pakistan's bowlers first set up the game by restricting a sub-par West Indies batting effort to 103. Was a mere formality when Pakistan got the start they got. Easily done in the end. West Indies have a lot to think about, entering the ODI series. 29 balls to spare in the end, a massive margin in this format. Debutant Kesrick Williams was pretty good, returning figures of 2 for 15 but not much else from WI. So, 3-0 it ends: may not see a series as one-sided as this for a while to come. Onwards and upwards because the ODIs aren't far away.

Presentation time.

Imad Wasim is the Man of the Match and the Man of the Series: "I'm working hard. I try to bowl it at the batsman's pads, and not offer them width. I pride myself at my batting."

Sarfraz Ahmed: "Very happy, credit to the boy show they kept their cool in this heat. A team effort. We knew we shouldn't lose focus coming into this game. Bowlers deserve credit for restricting a good team on a good pitch. We didn't over-attack, what's happening let it happen.

Carlos Brathwaite: "We didn't bat well in the first six in three games. We never got a competitive total but Pakistan outplayed us in all three games. It's a matter of skill and temperament. We will go back to the drawing board. We have the ODIs coming up, have to put in a better performance. A different series, we need to come back in the 50-over format. I'll go review my own performance as skipper."

Brathwaite to Malik, SIX runs

that will be it. Done with six! Overpitched on off, Malik opens up his stance and heaves the ball over long-on for six. Clears the boundary with ease. Pakistan secure their first whitewash in a three-match T20 series

Surely the last over of the series. Pak two away from a historic win.

Dwayne Bravo to Malik, no run

129 kph yorker on off, jammed back to the bowler

Daniyal: "I have to say, whatever little we have seen of Babar Azam, I have one word to describe it; class. Not a word you often associate with Pakistani batsmen who are mostly about flair. Babar looks different, only 21 years old yet look at him dictate terms and play the game at his tempo. "
