WI won by 8 wickets
Player of the match: Brandon King
 
Now, the New Zealand players will get to hoist the series trophy. New Zealand continue to be professional across conditions. So, that is it from myself, Karthik Raj and my co-commentator, Lavil Saldanha. Do join us for several other cricket matches which includes ECS, Afghanistan vs Ireland, South Africa vs England, India vs Zimbabwe amongst others. They will all be covered by Sportskeeda.
Kane Williamson: Firstly, congrats to the West Indies for their performance. We couldn't open up an end with the ball. The effort was there, great to get a series win. (On being New Zealand's all-format captain since 2016) It is busy but there is a lot of enjoyment in our successes too. There is always the World Cup at the back of the end. However, we wanted to focus on what is in front of us at the moment. 
Glenn Phillips has been named as the 'Man of the Match: Having played a few years here, special feeling to play here. (On his success as a middle-order batter) I think the ability to know what the situation is and to back your skillset. We have got such a strong batting line-up to follow, so that helps. We couldn't put the icing on the cake. They bowled very well today!
Rovman Powell (West Indies Captain): It is a pleasure playing for the West Indies and a boyhood dream to captain the side. I asked the boys for their support last night and they gave it their all. The bowling needed clarity, we know it can get hot here and we need to chop and change the bowlers rather than making them bowl long spells. King batted really well, it was such a pity he couldn't play the first couple of games. We spoke about the crowd flocking in large numbers and the support we would receive when playing here.
Brandon King is announced as the Player of the Match for his innings of 53(35b,4x4,3x6)

Brandon King:
It was an incredible knock, the crowd was there and my family was also there to watch me play. Consistency is key and the bowlers made our job easier by restricting the visitors to an under-par total. My primary target is to add runs at the top, give the team an excellent start and help them chase down the total. Brooks understood the momentum of the game and had also played a good knock. We want to continue playing good cricket in the lead up to the World T20
THAT'S IT! What a way to finish it off and Rovman Powell is pumped up at the victory. A comfortable eight-wicket victory for the hosts!! The pitch wasn't the best for batting but Brandon King set it up for the Windies with a cracking fifty while Shamarh Brooks batted decently to register a fifty on his own. With  respect to New Zealand, Tim Southee and Ish Sodhi didn't come to the party while the the duo of King and Brooks also handled Mitchell Santner very well. This meant that Lockie Ferguson's superb spell which cost only 16 runs didn't mean much in the end. The West Indies badly needed this victory after some disappointing performances against India and also the first two matches of this series. In the end, Rovman Powell finishing off the chase with some lusty blows would have been icing on the cake for the home fans in Jamaica!
