That is all from us. India tour West Indies late July and we will be back with ball-by-ball coverage. Till then take care and goodbye.
...
Player of the match - Mitchell Marsh
Player of the series -
Josh Hazlewood
...
West Indies got off to a sedate start, but then lost 3 quick wickets which derailed the chase. Kieron Pollard and Denesh Ramdin tried to stitch together a partnership but when Pollard got dismissed, it was always going to be an uphill task for the hosts. 

Mitchell Marsh was instrumental with the ball and his triple strike pegged back the chase. Adam Zampa kept things quiet in the middle overs and like it has always been, Australia never let the intensity dip anytime in the field. Quite fittingly they are the champions. 

A tournament of many positives for West Indies though!
