Until next time, it is a warm goodbye from Sportskeeda. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for other live matches, news and live scores from around the world. Adios!
In the end, one would have to say that this was a really comfortable 6-wicket win for India led by Virat Kohli's century and also Shreyas' Iyer's crucial 65-run knock. After DLS gave India a target of 255, the West Indies would have been hopeful of squaring the series and they got off to a brilliant start by dismissing Rohit Sharma early on. However, that early wicket didn't return India as the duo of Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli started to counter-attack and the West Indian bowlers started to wilt under the pressure.

Just when India looked like they will run away with the game, Fabian Allen's twin strikes to dismiss Dhawan and Rishabh Pant got his team back into the game until Shreyas Iyer decided to shift the momentum in India's favour once again. The quality of his quickfire knock was so good that it allowed Virat Kohli to drop anchor and play without any pressure to score from both ends.

The Mumbai batsman was particularly strong and dismissive against the spinners as he at one point hit four sixes off three balls. Iyer's 65-run knock eventually came to an end off Kemar Roach's bowling but it was never going to be enough for the West Indies as India only required 43 runs off 40 balls. 

In fact, Kedar Jadhav's quality hitting along with Kohli's masterful strokeplay which saw him bring up his 43rd ODI century helped India romp home with 15 balls to spare.

In the end, while India were professional in the way they chased down the target, the West Indies would be regretting their poor discipline with the ball and also in the end which included a reprieve for Kohli when he was on 11. Shai Hope put down a simple inside edge off Kohli's bowling and that came back to haunt them big time. 

Also, credit must go to the Indian bowlers for the way they came back on two occasions. First, they stalled the West Indies' momentum after Gayle and Lewis got out in quick succession. This was bettered by their efforts after the long rain-break as the West Indian batsman found it very difficult to score boundaries in the back-end of their inning.

Now that the limited overs part of India's tour is done and dusted, the cricketing party now moves onto the Test series which is set to begin in Antigua on the 22nd of this month. This series also marks of the start of the Test championship for both India and the West Indies. 

With India being the top-ranked Test side, they will surely fancy their chances but the home side cannot be discounted given the positive results over the last couple of years. The exciting pace attacks of both the sides combined with the Dukes ball will ensure the series will be a great spectacle for everyone involved.
That also looks like Christopher Henry Gayle aka 'Universe Boss' has retired. Players from both the Indian and West Indian camps are giving him warm hugs.
That's that! India wrap up the series 2-0
