- Windies skipper, Jason Holder is disappointed with the way they played. He further adds they let themselves down in the later half of the match. Admits they have to addresses their batting and have to put some runs on the board. Ends by sating they have to analyze the situation and make a plan for it.

Further adds he tried being aggressive and tried bowling a few short balls. Appreciates Lockie Ferguson for his performance.
- West Indies on the other hand, needed a brilliant start but that wasn't to be. They kept losing wickets in heaps. None of their batsman showed character to stay out there. Shai Hope did look promising but he too fell to a rash shot. Ashley Nurse too swung his bat but it was never going to be enough. It can be summed up as a poor outing by the away side. Stay tuned for the presentation.
- New Zealand have clinched the series with a massive victory. Defending a target of 326, their bowlers came out all guns blazing, led by their spearhead, Trent Boult. He swung the ball at the start and turned to some aggressive stuff when the ball became softer. He bagged career-best figures off 10-3-34-7. He was well supported by Lockie Ferguson who bowled with a lot of pace and used the short ball to great effect. He also finished with a three-fer to his name, bowling out the Windies for a paltry score.
- 27.6 OUT! TIMBER! That's it! Career-best figures for Trent Boult, a seven-fer for him. He bowls it on a length around off, gets it to shape back in. Gabriel tries to defend but is late in bringing his bat down. The ball sneaks through and hits the top of off. These are the best figures for a New Zealander against the Windies in ODIs. All smiles on the faces of the New Zealand players as they HAVE WON BY 204 RUNS!
