IND won by 119 runs (DLS)
Player of the match: Shubman Gill
 
All eyes are on the T20I series now, which gets underway on Friday. The likes of Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik are back in the mix for that five-match series. It's also a format in which the West Indies will look to bridge the gap as well. Not to forget, Shimron Hetmyer's return will be a big plus for them. That should be a fun series in a couple of days' time. That's all from the final match of this three-match ODI series. We hope you enjoyed over coverage. Until next time, this is Pratyush signing off on behalf of Pradeep, Soorya and Bala. Goodbye and goodnight! 
Right then. The Indian team receive the trophy with Dhawan handing the trophy to Avesh Khan, as is the norm with the youngster in bilateral. India keeps their record at the Queen's Park Oval. They haven't lost an ODI since 2007. The Shikhar Dhawan-led Indian side completes the whitewash. 

Plenty of opportunities for some players in this series and enough to take away from it as well. While the likes of Gill, Axar and Siraj put their hand up for India, there were plenty of positives for the West Indies too. There were no World Cup super league points at stake, so Pooran's side can take learnings from this series when they face New Zealand in an ODI series next month. Before that though, we have a five-match T20I series in store.
Shikhar Dhawan: The boys are young but they played maturity throughout. The way they handled themselves, I'm very proud of them. The whole team contributed, which is great for us. (On his own form) Pleased with my form. I've played this format for a while so I know how to convert those innings into big ones. It didn't come off today but that's how it goes. If I'm trying to get a move on and lose my wicket, I don't mind it. (On Gill) It happens sometimes. He got a 98 and was timing the ball really well. Even Shreyas contributed nicely. The way all boys responded today was amazing. (With the fans) We feel really grateful and lucky. Most of the fans have come from America, we are really thankful and grateful for them. Proud of the bowling unit for the way they responded to the challenge today as well. The way Siraj took two wickets early on with Axar and Shardul. Yuzi is experienced as well. I'm really proud of all of them.
Nicholas Pooran: Tough one for us. Felt like we have been on the other side of the result in this series. We did a lot of things right in the series but today we didn't show up. We tried our best. The guys performed well in this series but we'll want to take the learnings from this one into the next series. (The target) Definitely thought we had it in reach. With the DLS, we knew it was going to be a challenge. Especially with the kind of start we had. With seven runs needed per over, we didn't string enough partnerships together. We definitely lost the game there. (Learnings from this series) We have a young team. Congratulations to India, they played really well. A bit of inexperience in this format but this series gave us enough knowledge. We learned a lot from this series and I'm expecting us to go from strength to strength. The batters did well in the middle and even the bowlers ticked a few boxes. There's not only one captain out there now, there are enough experienced players around. We want to do well in the New Zealand series. Coming from Guyana, we spoke about doing well with the bat. We are ticking boxes as a team and I believe we are pretty close. The guys have put all their effort into coming into this game and are getting more confident. Hopefully, we can get super league points. We just won a T20 series, so hopefully we continue to entertain the crowd and perform well.
Shubman Gill is the Player of the Match. Here is what he has to say: It was bittersweet. I was expecting to get a hundred today but it wasn't in my control with the rain. Was very disappointed with the runout in the first game so my plan today was to rotate strike a bit more. After 22 overs or so, we put the foot on the pedal. (On the second rain break) I was just thinking about getting one more over. It was an excellent wicket in all three games. There was a bit there for the bowlers as well
India win by 119 runs (DLS method)

Shubman Gill - 98* (98) | Yuzvendra Chahal - 4/17
Nicholas Pooran - 42 (32) | Hayden Walsh - 2/57

Well, that will be that then. After two closely fought ODIs, India have dominated proceedings in this third game to complete the whitewash and seal the series. It was setup by the batters today with the top three of Gill, Dhawan and Iyer setting it up.

While Dhawan and Iyer had handy contributions, Shubman Gill was the star of the show. However, the youngster missed out on a well-deserved ton as the rain came along to shorten the Indian innings.

Chasing a target of 257 runs, West Indies were pegged back early. After Hooda resumed proceedings with a maiden, Siraj delivered the double whammy to dismiss Mayers and Brooks in the same over. 

It was always going to be a tall task for the Windies from there on. Hope and King did their bit to rebuild the innings but neither could carry on as things went south rather quickly once the former was dismissed.

There was hope for the West Indies as long as Pooran was around but once he was gone, the result was on the cards. Holder couldn't provide any heroics on his return, while the lower order couldn't wield their willow either.

Yuzvendra Chahal was the star of the show, as far as India are concerned. Siraj set it up for the Indians with the new ball, while Thakur inevitably ended up with a couple of wickets as well. Prasidh had an expensive outing but he got the crucial wicket of Pooran, while Axar bagged King to complete the tally.

So, India seal the series in a comprehensive fashion. It's a 3-0 whitewash for the visitors, registering their 12th consecutive ODI series win against the Windies. As for the hosts, this is their ninth consecutive ODI defeat. Still plenty of positives for them, that's for sure. Stick around to hear from both captains at the presentation.

An innocent and light thigh slap from Dhawan this time. Reckon all those thigh slaps over the years have finally taken their toll? India just one wicket away now.
