It was a deck where they could have gotten to 145-150 and then this game would have been totally different.

As for the Windies, they might have won the series but they do have issues to handle, especially dealing with quality spin on turning decks. Powerhitting is all fine but it needs to blend with strike-rotation as well. It's a skill they need to master with the T20 WC in India this year. 21:15 Local Time, 01:15 GMT, 06:45 IST: Phew!

That's a wrap to the T20I series. Much more closer than one expected it to be. Eventually, it's the batting that let the Lankans down. West Indies will take this confidence into the ODI series that starts in a couple of days time. Do join us for that one. Until next time, it's goodbye from us. Cheers!
