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.

...

17.6 W Riaz to S Narine, 1 run, that was a homage to Bravo as Wahab tries a in-dipping slower ball yorker that is well dug out by Narine who takes a single to keep strike.

...

17.5 W Riaz to S Narine, 2 runs, excellent foot work from Shoaib Malik in the deep ensures that it is just two after Narine creams another cover drive.

...

17.5 W Riaz to S Narine, WIDE, too high this time from Wahab and he will have to bowl it again.

...

17.4 W Riaz to S Narine, no run, that was slightly short but a lot faster and Narine is beaten by the pace and can't make contact with the ball.

...

17.4 W Riaz to S Narine, WIDE down the leg side and the pressure seems to be getting to Wahab.

...

17.3 W Riaz to S Narine, FOUR, make that back-to-back boundaries for Narine. This one was driven firmly through cover and mid-off and races to the boundary.

...

17.2 W Riaz to S Narine, FOUR, that was a slower full toss from Narine and that was dispatched over mid-off by Narine.

...

17.1 W Riaz to C Brathwaite, 1 run, that was a slower full ball outside off and Brathwaite tries to drill that past long-on but the lack of pace means he only gets a single and down to the other end.

...

Narine with some lusty blows in that over, has bought the target down to 57 from three overs. Still looks tough. But with Brathwaite still there, there's a glimmer of hope for WI

Wahab Riaz to begin the 18th, as Brathwaite takes strike.

...

16.6 H Ali to S Narine, no run, slower ball angling across the batsman and Narine swings and misses this one. That might not be a bad end result for the Windies as it means Brathwaite will be on strike.

...

16.5 H Ali to S Narine, FOUR, and Narine shows that he is no mug with the bat by drilling the ball expertly past the bowler for a boundary. That was a yorker which turned into a full toss.

...

16.4 H Ali to S Narine, SIX, get out of HERE. What was that. Brian Lara would be proud of that shot. Almost similar to the one that you would execute in Brian Lara Cricket 2007, behind square for a six.

...

16.3 H Ali to S Narine, no run, slower ball this time from Hasan and Narine misses it completely.

...

16.2 H Ali to C Brathwaite, 1 run, driven firmly down the ground but not as fiercely this time and he only gets a single.

...

16.1 H Ali to C Brathwaite, FOUR, that was driven firmly through cover like a sledge hammer through a nail. And the fielder has no say as that races to the boundary.

...

72 needed off the last four overs and if the task was improbable at the end of last over, it just became almost impossible with just three wickets in hand.

...

Tanvir, you beauty! A match-winning spell comes to an end. Tanvir has the skill to bring all his experience in the middle when it's needed the most. Intellegent, intellegent bowling! 

Hasan Ali to bowl, as Pooran takes strike. Can the 20-year old produce a miracle for WI?

...

15.6 S Tanvir to N Pooran, OUT, and although this is cricket, Pooran is out after three strikes. This one was full once again and Pooran tried to hit it over long-on but only succeeded in finding Mohammad Nawaz.

...

15.5 S Tanvir to N Pooran, no run, a slower ball this time as Tanvir is bringing out all the tricks of the trade. Pooran tries to scoop but the ball takes an eternity to arrive and just bounces over the stumps and Pooran misses again. If this was baseball, he would be out.

...

15.4 S Tanvir to N Pooran, no run, another full ball but this one was a bit closer to the stumps and Pooran tries to guide it to third man but makes no contact.

...

15.3 S Tanvir to N Pooran, no run, full and wide and Pooran can't reach it again. This is excellent bowling from Tanvir who is using all of his experience to all but guide Pakistan home.

...

15.3 S Tanvir to N Pooran, WIDE down the leg side.

...

15.2 S Tanvir to N Pooran, no run, swing and a miss this time from Pooran. That was full and wide and Pooran simply couldn't reach that ball which was placed there expertly.

...

15.1 S Tanvir to C Brathwaite, 1 run, almost a double whammy as Carlos Brathwaite is almost caught and run-out but in the end he gets a single. Bratthwaite skewed an outside edge to Hasan Ali at short third man, who then had a shy at the stumps as the Brathwaite was no where to be seen. But Ali failed to hit the stumps there.

...

After being smashed for a six, Hasan Ali came back beautifully to take two wickets in that over, and possibly has put the final nail in the West Indies' coffin.

With 5 over left, WI need 74 more as Tanvir comes into bowl his final over.
