Scorer: Ranjith P | Commentator: Andrew Miller

5.48pm Well, that wasn't quite how the script was written, but West Indies will take it all the same. A formidable opening stand of 192 gave way to an anxious mid-innings wobble, but West Indies' T20 finishing held firm to carry them to a 2-0 series scoreline. Sri Lanka, for their part, put a decent total on the board through Gunathilaka's fine 96, Chandimal's anchoring half-century, and some late impetus from Hasaranga.

Kieron Pollard: "It was a total team performance. Our best chance was chasing so it was good to see the boys sticking to the their plans."

Dimuth Karunaratne: "We lost early wickets but the two batsmen who got runs couldn't convert it. The spinners are expected to take wickets, but West Indies batted really well. We lacked wicket-taking options and that's why we couldn't put pressure on West Indies."

The player of the match is Evin Lewis: "I feel very proud. I totally back myself and my ability. I looked for a good start in the powerplay and pushed on from there. Playing the 50-overs last month helped me. My confidence was there, so I tried to execute. This is probably one of the best wickets in Antigua. From the next game I will look to carry the game deep.

Sammy J: "A most Pyrrhic victory by West Indies, if ever there was as one! Utterly unconvincing! " Well... a decent opening stand, and they held their nerve at the death. Can't ask much more than that.

Pradeep to Pooran, 1 run, Pooran seals the deal! Clipped off the legs, into space, it's a five-wicket win, but more palpitations than the scoreline implies!

Pradeep to Pooran, FOUR, flashed through point, and the scores are level! Mickey Arthur almost punches the wall as the wide full toss is drilled through point

Pradeep to Pooran, FOUR, clattered through the covers! That's exquisite, shades of Lara on the power and open-faced slicing of the drive, filleting the cover sweepers to take the rate to a run a ball

Pradeep to Pooran, no run, a massive wind-up on the launch over long-on, but outside the eyeline. Nearly a wide, but a perfect ball in the end

So, nine off the final over... one boundary, lots of scampering?

END OF OVER:
49 | 4 Runs | WI: 265/5 (9 runs required from 6 balls, RR: 5.40, RRR: 9.00)
