You can follow all the action from the third T20I here.

...

And that's all folks! It was a pleasure bringing you the coverage. Do join us for the third and final T20 to be held in Abu Dhabi on 27th September, 2016. The match will begin at 930 IST.

...

Carlos Brathwaite, West Indies captain: We didn't come to the party as he liked to. It is what it is. In hindsight, 150 may have been manageable. If we had batted in the first six-seven overs, we just didn't turn up with the bat. As a result, Pakistan are series-winners. It is frustrating. We din't come to the party with the bat and as a result we lost

Sarfraz, Man of the Match: The conditions were tough because of the dew. The ball was slipping, but we finished it well. Babar Azam batted well, Imad and Nawaz impressed. Credit goes to Malik for finishing the innings. It is a great sign for Pakistan cricket. Umar's celebration was nice.

...

And Pakistan have stormed to another win against the current T20 World Champions. They have also taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three match series. Pakistan have been brilliant on the day, led superbly by the young Sarfraz. They rallied well to put up 160 after a slow start, and followed it up with some outstanding bowling, led by Sohail Tanvir and Hasan Ali. 

West Indies have looked out of sorts in this series, with their batting failing them twice in two days. They lacked application in the middle, even for a T20 game, and barring Bravo, no batsmen was able to handle the Pakistan bowlers.

...

19.6 W Riaz to S Narine, WICKET, and Umar Akmal with his third dab of the day picks up the catch to seal a Pakistan win by 16 runs. Another length ball and Narine just finds the fielder at long on to finish the innings and Pakistan seal the three-match series 2-0.

...

19.5 W Riaz to S Narine, FOUR, that was a length ball and Narine just picks it up and hits it through mid-wicket for a boundary.

...

19.4 W Riaz to J Taylor, 1 run, that was another length ball and just hit past the bowler for a single.

...

And that's that, folks! Unless Pakistan do something ridiculously silly, they have won this match and this series.

...

19.3 W Riaz to S Narine, 1 run, that was a good-length ball and Narine can't connect properly and only gets a single to deep mid-wicket.

...

19.2 W Riaz to S Narine, no run, excellent slower full ball and that beats Narine all ends up.

...

Only the dew and Narine will win it for WI from here!

...

19.1 W Riaz to S Narine, 2 runs, and the free-hit is not connect cleanly and they only pick up a couple but a wild throw means they could have possibly sneaked a third.

...

19.1 W Riaz to S Narine, FOUR, WIDE down the leg side and a full toss over waist too. And just like that, the WI's hopes are alive. Will that be a free-hit? yes, it has been given as a NO BALL.

...

WI need five sixes to win in the last over.

Wahab to bowl it, can Narine continue his brilliant hitting and win it for the WI?

...

18.6 H Ali to J Taylor, FOUR, innovation of the highest order as Taylor goes across his stumps and just scoops it over the short fine-leg fielder and that races to the boundary.

...

18.5 H Ali to S Narine, 1 run, that was a back of a length ball and there to be hit but Narine who has been timing the pants off each ball doesn't get all of it and just takes a single

...

18.4 H Ali to J Taylor, 1 run, full and straight, where did he have that hidden all along? Hasan with a beautiful yorker that Taylor does well to dig out and he also gets a single to get off strike

...

18.4 H Ali to J Taylor, WIDE, again too far outside off from Hasan.

...

18.3 H Ali to J Taylor, FOUR, that was a slower short ball from Hasan Ali and Taylor just gets a top edge and that easily clears the keeper and races to the boundary.

...

18.3 H Ali to J Taylor, WIDE, too wide outside off and he will have to bowl that again.

...

Jerome Taylor walks to the crease and bad thing for the Windies is that Narine will not be on strike.

...

18.2 H Ali to C Brathwaite, WICKET, that was a slower short ball and Brathwaite just can't connect but that flat-batted swat from Brathwaite just finds Umar Akmal who gives him a dab to send him off. Brathwaite's wicket would have drawn curtains for WI on most days, but not today as Sunil Narine is still in the middle striking it well.

...

18.1 H Ali to S Narine, 1 run, full and straight from Hasan and that is drilled down to long-on from Narine who will only get one.

...

Narine's timing in that over could have put any WI top order batsmen to shame. The asking rate still seems improbable, but Narine's boundaries have ignited some hopes for WI.

43 needed off 2 overs, as Hasan Ali comes into bowl 19th.
