Rishabh Pant slams an incredible one-handed six against Windies

Shikhar Dhawan, who was adjudged the Man-of-the-Match for his 62-ball 92, said: "It was a good match".

The pair had carried their side to 175 for two, leaving India to get seven runs from 11 balls, before they both inexplicably gave their wickets away.

But Allen, one of Windies' best fielders, was unable to gather the return with Pandey well short of his ground.

Denesh Ramdin scored a run-a-ball 15 before he smashed it back onto the stumps to give Sundar, who was pretty expensive in his 1/33, his first wicket. Paceman Keemo Paul took two wickets including the risky Pant in a penultimate over that yielded just three runs, leaving India needing five from the final six balls.

India's chase suffered an early setback when Sharma, who struck an unbeaten 111 in Lucknow last week, was dismissed for four runs after mistiming Keemo Paul's slower ball and sending it straight down the throat of Brathwaite at mid-off.

It was left to Manish Pandey to strike the winning run off the last ball, which the 29-year-old did with no great conviction.

India vs West Indies 3rd T20I between India and West Indies is being telecast on Star Sports 1 and 1 HD, Hindi 1 and Hindi 1 HD and Tamil 1.

Social media went abuzz to see Nicholas Pooran out in the middle with captain Carlos Brathwaite and T20 expert Kieron Pollard still in the dugout.

The stylish right-hander hit the first six of the innings, lofting Krunal Pandya over long-on.

Praising the bowling efforts by team India, Rohit added, "We didn't want to be complacent and wanted to come out and win". Especially in the IPL [Indian Premier League], these have happened a lot. I've been part of games like these with Mumbai Indians. As a team there is always scope for improvement.

With Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav and Kuldeep Yadav rested for the last game, Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar got a look in. It is important to stick to your strengths, and a lot of these guys have not played much for India so a home series like this was the flawless opportunity to show their talent.
