India's win against the Windies was their ninth consecutive bilateral T20I series win consisting of three or more matches, in fact, they haven't lost any.
After thrashing the Windies in the whites, the visitors desperately needed to bounce back in the limited-overs international and they somehow managed to provide some fight in the ODI series but defending World T20 champions could not really up their ante in their favourite format as India won the T20 series 3-0.
For India, captain Rohit Sharma clicked, Shikhar Dhawan fired, Rishabh Pant proved himself and the debutants Krunal Pandya and Khaleel Ahmed also showed that they have a bright future ahead and are ready for Australia T20Is. Kuldeep Yadav and the pace duo of Bumrah-Bhuvneshwar were impressive as ever. On the contrary, the Windies need to work on their team combination first and especially batting positions of players to get back on track in the shortest format of the game.
And as India head to Australia, they would be looking to end the year on a high in the T20 format as they take on the hosts in a three-match T20I series.
