India completed a T20I whitewash as they beat Kieron Pollard‘s West Indies by 17 runs in the third and final game in Kolkata. Rohit Sharma thus became the first Indian skipper to complete clean sweeps across formats against West Indies. Chasing 186 to win, West Indies ended at 167/9 in their 20 overs.

This is India’s ninth consecutive win in the format. The clean sweep also saw India get to the number one spot in the ICC T20I rankings. Meanwhile, West Indies let two close games slip away from them. Nicholas Pooran scored three consecutive fifties in the series showing his batting prowess in the format. He ended as the highest run-scorer of the series with 184 runs from three matches.

Despite another defeat, Kieron Pollard was keen on finding out the positives from the series and termed the West Indis team as a continued “work of progress”.

“We were in the game until the 15th over. We got a good start – 70-odd after seven or eight overs – and we weren’t able to capitalise. In this T20 series, Nicholas showed his consistency. Rovman Powell showing that he wants to be a part and parcel of the white-ball teams.”

Pollard further spoke about playing white-ball cricket in India. After being outplayed in the ODI series, the Windies team delivered a much-better performance in the T20I series. Kieron Pollard concluded by saying that the team will continue to build in a better way keeping the T20 World Cup in Australia in mind.

“Coming to India is always going to be difficult. We had an opportunity to win the ODI series as well. These guys are finding their feet… Looking forward to what the future holds. From our T20 perspective, we had the experience but didn’t get the job done. With the World Cup eight months away, the more cricket these guys play, the better they are going to get” Pollard added further.
