 Full Scorecard

Chasing 181, the hosts rode on a 130-run stand between Dhawan and Rishabh Pant, who hit 58, to achieve their target on the last ball of the match.

Pant was out in the 19th over and Dhawan lost his wicket on the penultimate ball of the match, but Manish Pandey hit the winning run to deny West Indies any chance of a consolation victory. A tie would have taken the match into a super over.

The result caps off a complete domination by India, who had won the tests 2-0 and then the one-day international series 3-1 against the visiting West Indians.

INDIA: Rohit Sharma (capt), Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Lokesh Rahul, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik(wk), Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, K Khaleel Ahmed, Yuzvendra Chahal

WEST INDIES: Carlos Brathwaite (capt), Shai Hope, Shimron Hetmyer, Darren Bravo, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard, Fabian Allen, Keemo Paul, Khary Pierre, Oshane Thomas
