Scorer: Chandan Duorah | Commentator: @himanshu_a30

And with that, we wrap up the first of back-to-back T20Is in Florida. India have pocketed the series, and West Indies have only pride to play for tomorrow. Until then, it is goodnight and goodbye from Chandan, Monga and me, Himanshu!

Rohit Sharma, the winning captain: "How we played this game was most pleasing. Conditions were not easy; we batted really well. Lot of thought with that. How we bowled was good to see as well. Pitch was so slow, and you can use that to your advantage. I thought it was a good score, but with the kind of line-up West Indies have, no score is safe... You know what happens when you keep taking wickets. We do understand Avesh's talent. Anyone can have one or two bad games... give players enough game time in the middle. He used his height and variations really well. I would just like to thank all the people who came to watch the game."

Avesh Khan is the Player of the Match: "Feel really good, since I didn't do well in the last two matches. I bowled hard lengths. I just talked to my coaches and captains. They said, "we are backing you". They were backing me; but there is one match to go, and I am focussing on that. The ball was stopping a bit, so I was mixing my slower balls with the hard length. It feels like India [even in the US]. It feels like home. Really happy they came to see us."

Nicholas Pooran speaks first: "They got off to a flying start, but I am really happy with the way guys came back and restricted them to 190.. [On his wicket] Get off to a brilliant start, and get run-out. Drakes and Akeal Hosein... justifying their place. We want to win games, and tomorrow is an opportunity for us."

Hang around for the presentations.

Danny: "Arshdeep is definitely in for World Cup. Bumrah and Arshdeep is a deadly combination in death overs for India.

Karthik: "Arshdeep is the find of the tour in my view. should in WC. Batting is still not sorted out"

2.51pm Another comfortable win for India. Their T20 side keeps marching ahead even without regular faces. No real massive contribution in this win, as a combined effort with bat and ball sees West Indies through. But what a positive Arshdeep and his yorkers were, just like Avesh's comeback after an expensive few days earlier.

Arshdeep Singh to McCoy, OUT, this is gone! This time the yorker breaches through bat and pad to hit the stumps. Arshdeep fires it fast, and gets that dart back into the left-hander. McCoy's front leg is out of the way, as the ball hits his back leg and hits the stumps. India win the series with one match to spare
