That's it from us folks. The T20 series is done. All three games were interesting, but WI's T20 nous and batting power triumphed over Sri Lanka's spin-bowling nous in the end. Join us again in a couple of days for the ODIs - the first one kicks off on Wednesday.

Fabian Allen is player of the match for his 1 for 13 with the ball, and 21 not out off 6 with the bat: "I prepare for everything, including bowling in the Powerplay. I just backed myself and executed. The pitch is very slow, so I just needed to execute my plans. When I look in the dressing room we have a lot of batting power. I told Jason Holder that I'm not comfortable batting against Hasaranga, so I told him to bat him out and I'll be finishing. I just backed myself in the end. It was a good performance overall."

A little heartbreak for Sri Lanka, who fought hard with the ball after a terrible first 10 overs with the bat. But what a batting line-up this West Indies side has. They can six-hit their way out of almost any situation. Fabian Allen - their No. 9 - was the guy who struck the decisive sixes today, but you look up and down that order, and feel a match-winning innings can come from anywhere.

It's been a slightly dramatic chase, but Sri Lanka lost this in the first 10 - they were 4 for 46 in the 10th over, and although Bandara and Chandimal put on 85 together, they needed another 15-20 to make things difficult for West Indies. Akila Dananjaya having an off night didn't help either.

Dananjaya to Allen, SIX, Allen finishes it off with another huge strike! This is tossed up on the stumps. Allen gets low and clobbers this high into the night, over cow corner to seal the match and the series. That's not as big as the others, but it's massive nonetheless.

Dananjaya to Holder, 1 run, tossed up on the stumps, almost a full toss, driven to long on. West Indies don't need to be ambitious now

Dananjaya to Allen, 1 run, shortish wide ball outside off. Allen reaches for this and slaps this to the cover sweeper

Dananjaya to Allen, SIX, Dananjaya is a bit rattled here, and he sends down a gift to Allen - a full toss at about shin-height on leg stump. Exactly the ball he would have wanted. He doesn't miss out. It's another huuuuuge six over deep midwicket. the roof is taking a battering

Dananjaya to Allen, 2 runs, googly I think, floated up on to the pads. Allen aims a big heave but it takes the outside edge and goes skimming off towards short third man

6
Dananjaya to Allen, SIX, That has gone miiiiiiiiiles. It's been an off-night for Dananjaya, and this is a terrible way to start this over. This is a shortish ball on the legs. Allen gets back and absolutely lays into it, sending it high over deep square leg for six. That's on the roof!

Akila Dananjaya to bowl the second-to last over.
