SIX! Angelo Mathews to Andre Russell. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep square leg for 6 runs. That's how you finish a match. Dre Russ take a bow, sublime hitting to seal a resounding victory. West Indies have beaten Sri Lanka by 7 wickets in Pallekele to seal the T20I series 2-0, coasting to their target tonight with three overs to spare. Brandon King got the chase off to a rapid start with a career best 43, while Shimron Hetmyer anchored the tourists with a composed 43* of his own. Andre Russell will be the man to take the headlines though, his 40* came from just 14 balls and included six towering sixes forcing spectators to duck for cover. The hosts were a touch unfortunate this evening as they lost Kusal Perera and Wanindu Hasaranga to injury in the field. Even so, their performance wasn't good enough against a team that will be one of the favourites in the upcoming World T20 in Australia. The top order batsmen wasted promising starts and the bowlers couldn't maintain pressure for long enough. West Indies deserving winners then, superb in all departments and a fantastic effort after their lacklustre display in the ODIs. Kieron Pollard lifts the trophy and the tour comes to an end.

SIX! Lasith Malinga to Andre Russell. Length ball, middle stump Deep in crease Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Russell v Malinga is a clash of the titans and it is the Jamaican who is bossing the battle. Another one soars miles into the crowd, effortless destruction from the big man.

SIX! Lasith Malinga to Andre Russell. Off cutter half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. The sixes just keep on raining down in Pallekele, superman Dre Russ is showing no signs of stopping the chaos. Even the great Malinga is powerless to prevent it. Never before has power been so stylish.

SIX! Thisara Perera to Andre Russell. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. My goodness, that is a monster blow by Russell. Even by his lofty standards that has gone a long way. I think we will need a new ball because that one has disappeared down the road. West Indies coasting towards a 2-0 series win.

SIX! Lahiru Kumara to Andre Russell. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Hard, flat and six more. Ferocious striking by the big allrounder, all of a sudden the required rate drops below a run a ball.

SIX! Lahiru Kumara to Andre Russell. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. In the slot, you can't bowl there to Russell because he will smash you all night long. The ball seems to go into orbit for a brief moment before landing in the stands.

FOUR! Lahiru Kumara to Shimron Hetmyer. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Hetmyer has been out there a while so he's used to the pace of the pitch and can take on Kumara. It was in the air for a long time and always drifting away from the fielder.

OUT! Caught. Dasun Shanaka to Rovman Powell. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep square leg, by Jayasuriya. Oh wow, that is something special from Jayasuriya. The third umpire will take a look but I think he is okay. Powell thought he had enough on it to earn six, the fielder had other ideas. He plucked it from the sky, tumbled backwards and had the clarity of mind to throw it up and retake the catch while on the floor. Spectacular effort, Sri Lanka not giving up without a fight.
