It might not have been the best of starts for Bangladesh when they were bowled out for 43 in the first Test, but since then it has been an upward climb. In colored clothing Bangladesh were far superior than Windies and the visitors have ended the tour on a high. They'll cherish these sweet memories and so will the fans of Bangladesh cricket. Windies need to contemplate and work on the areas they need to improve on. For now, that's all from our side. This is Nikhil signing off on behalf of Abhinand, Sriram and Reddy. See ya!

Shakib Al Hasan, Man of the Series: Unbelievable effort from the boys after losing the first game. Everyone had the believe that we can come back strongly. All the boys showed character and hopefully we can continue this ahead. We don't have a great T20 record but this will give us lot of confidence. I was planning for myself to perform well. The guys put in their hard work and nothing more I could have asked from them. We have been doing very well in ODIs, since 2015. We know how to win tight matches. We need to work on our Test cricket, just that we need to do well overseas. The way the crowd supported us, so many Bangladeshis, we never felt away from home. They played like our 12th man.

Liton Das, Man of the Match: Good win for us. They are a very good side and the World Champions. The pitch was ok, similar to our country and easy to bat on. Thankful to my god and very lucky to win this award.

Carlos Brathwaite: It wasn't our smartest batting performance. At the back end, needing 30 or 40 we didn't keep enough wickets in hand. To pull them back in the final overs was a good job. At one point, they looked like scoring 200-220, but restricting them to 184 was one hell of a job. We could have done things differently but that's how cricket works. Sometimes you just got to give the credit to the opposition. Kudos to them for playing the way they did. The batting from Rovman has improved, not only in T20s but also in ODIs as well, and Nurse has been fantastic. It'll be important for us as we go to India and Bangladesh. Hope we get better there and execute our plans. Think we are getting closer and closer to finding the proper plans and executing them.

It's still pouring out there but Bangladesh players are busy celebrating and taking a victory lap. The crowd came out in numbers and the Tigers haven't disappointed their fans. They did lose the Test series, but bounced back in an emphatic manner to bag the ODI and T20I series'. Vengeance is sweet, always. Hang on for the presentations.

That's the game. Bangladesh win the match by 19 runs (DLS method) and win the T20I series 2-1. A perfect game of cricket for them. It was their openers who set it up for them with a blistering partnership at the top. Liton Das was the star with the bat for Bangladesh as he scored a magnificent 32-ball 61. Their bowlers gave them an equally good start and the Fizz finishing things off, getting the prized scalp of Andre Russell just before the rain break. In short, they were clinical.

23:57 Local Time, 03:57 GMT, 09:27 IST: The rain has eased off and the ground staff is out in the middle doing their bit with the super-sopper. This game should have been done by now but the two rain-interruptions have come in the way. Anyways, stay tuned in.

23:46 Local Time, 03:46 GMT, 09:16 IST: The heavens have opened up and a defeat for Windies looks inevitable now. Till the time Russell was out in the middle, this could have gone either way. But, now that he's gone, Bangladesh are the clear favorites to win this contest. The rain has got heavier and Windies are way behind the DLS par score, 19 runs behind to be precise. The play can be extended by 30 minutes and if at all it resumes, it's just going to be a matter of time. Getting 50 runs in the 17 balls looks unlikely. For now, the square is under covers and we'll be back as soon as we have some news.

Keemo Paul, right handed bat, comes to the crease

Mustafizur to A Russell, out Caught by A Haque!! Is that the match? I guess it is. Russell is livid with himself as he hammers the bat on his way back. How often have we seen Mustafizur doing this, getting wickets at crucial junctures. A low full toss around off and Russell takes him on and swings his bat, gets the elevation but not the distance. Ariful near long-off sets himself under it and takes it safely. The fielders converge and celebrate as they know that's the game. A Russell c A Haque b Mustafizur 47(21) [4s-1 6s-6]

Mustafizur to A Russell, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Mustafizur Rahman [3.0-0-31-2] is back into the attack

Abu Hider to Nurse, no run, Russell has denied the single! He wants to do this on his own. Full, wide and outside off, Nurse plays at with hard hands and ends up getting an outside edge that flies down to third man. 'Wait there,' says Russell to his partner
Abu Hider to A Russell, 1 run, over-pitched delivery outside off, slower in pace, Russell drills it down to wide long-off and ambles across to the other end
Abu Hider to A Russell, SIX, one man show! A slower back of length delivery from round the wicket. The angles don't matter when it comes to Russell. It's all about power! Waits for it and pumps it over long-off for a flat batted flat six. Moves on to 46* off 19 balls with that massive six, does Russell

Ashley Nurse, right handed bat, comes to the crease

Abu Hider to Brathwaite, out Caught by (sub)Sabbir Rahman!! Bangladesh keep striking at regular intervals. None of the Windies batsmen are able to strike as cleanly as Russell is. A short delivery outside off, Brathwaite goes for it. Plays a pull and ends up miscuing it towards long-on. The substitute fielder at long-on settles under it and makes no mistake. Brathwaite c (sub)Sabbir Rahman b Abu Hider 5(10)

Abu Hider to Brathwaite, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Abu Hider to A Russell, 1 run, slower delivery, short in length around off, Russell plays a pull but it comes off the toe-end as he takes a single at deep mid-wicket
Abu Hider to A Russell, SIX, six no. 5 for the big man. 111 metres, can you believe it? A good length delivery around middle and leg, Russell stands tall and clubs it over long-on. Shows no mercy against the young bowler. He's striking at 229.41 at the moment

Abu Hider Rony [2.0-0-13-0] is back into the attack

Rubel to Brathwaite, no run, full, quick and fired outside off, Brathwaite swings and misses. The bat was miles away from the ball, there was no chance of connecting that. Windies need 64 runs in 24 balls. Can they do this? Till the time Russell is out there, anything is possible
Rubel to Brathwaite, 2 runs, full and wide of off, driven wide of sweeper cover for a brace
Rubel to A Russell, 1 run, very full outside off, hammered away to long-off
Rubel to A Russell, no run, clever stuff from Rubel. Saw Russell was moving to leg, so he fired it outside off. Russell needed a golf club to reach for it

Groundstaff are ready with the covers.

Rubel to Brathwaite, leg byes, 1 run, Brathwaite moves across low looking to scoop it fine. But Rubel follows him and raps him on the pad

It's started raining..

Rubel to A Russell, 1 run, moves in with the angle, Russell digs it out through square leg

Rubel Hossain [3.0-0-24-1] is back into the attack

Shakib to Brathwaite, no run, flighted delivery outside off, eased in front of cover by Brathwaite
Shakib to Brathwaite, byes, FOUR, that kept low, four bonus runs for the batting side. Pitched outside off and keeps low. Brathwaite tried to defend it but got beaten due to the lack of bounce. Rahim couldn't pick it up either as the ball nutmegged him and raced away to the fence
Shakib to A Russell, 1 run, a bit of flight on that ball as Russell nudges it away to deep mid-wicket. Not taking any risks against Shakib, are these two
Shakib to Brathwaite, 1 run, eases the slower delivery down to long-on and hands over the strike to Russelll
Shakib to Brathwaite, no run, straighter and lower around off, Brathwaite fends it down nicely
Shakib to A Russell, 1 run, flat and quick around middle and leg, Russell gets his bat down in time and bunts it in front of cover for a run
Mustafizur to Brathwaite, no run, that's a better delivery by the Fizz. Aims the helmet of the opposition skipper and forces him to take evasive action. Brathwaite got in an awkward position as he ducked under that bouncer
Mustafizur to Brathwaite, 2 runs, slower and shorter on the thigh pad, Brathwaite tucks it down to fine leg with soft hands and manages to take two quick runs
Mustafizur to A Russell, 1 run, short of a length outside off, Russell dabs it in front of sweeper cover and gets a single
Mustafizur to A Russell, FOUR, another boundary. Brace yourselves. This was full and wide outside off, Russell reaches for it and drills it past the diving fielder at sweeper cover. That absolutely rocketed away to the fence
Mustafizur to A Russell, SIX, that's his fourth six. What does he eat? An absolute beast. Short of a length around off, Russell picks the length nicely and nails his front foot pull to clear long-on by a huge margin. 24 runs, all in the form of sixes so far...

Carlos Brathwaite, right handed bat, comes to the crease

Mustafizur to Powell, out Caught by Abu Hider!! Windies have lost half their side. It'll be two big-hitters in the form of Russell and Brathwaite out in the middle now. Powell had no option but to go for it as the required run rate has notched up to 13 now. A short of a length delivery around off, Powell swings at it and gets a top-edge that's been gulped by Abu Hider at point. Doesn't matter though. Powell c Abu Hider b Mustafizur 23(20) [4s-2]

Mustafizur to Powell, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Mustafizur Rahman [2.0-0-18-1] is back into the attack

Shakib to A Russell, no run, darted on the pads, Russell lifts his bat and pads it away
Shakib to A Russell, SIX, that's his third six of this innings. He knows only one way. This was flatter in trajectory but it doesn't matter to Russell. Stays rooted in his crease and clears the long-on fence with a magnificent whip
Shakib to A Russell, no run, shorter and quicker around off, Russell bunts it back to the bowler
Shakib to A Russell, SIX, need few more of these from Russell, do the Windies. Right in the slot around middle and leg, Russell goes down on his knee and pumps it over the deep mid-wicket fence with a slog. High, handsome and sweet
Shakib to A Russell, no run, flatter and shorter around off, Russell calmly fends it down
