Dhawan was bright in the second and third T20s.

India completed a 3-0 series clean sweep of the Windies with a last-gasp six-wicket victory in the final T20 at Chennai on Sunday.

The hosts’ thrilling win brought to an end a miserable tour for the visitors who had already squandered the Test and ODI series coming into the T20s.

As Rohit Sharma and his men celebrate a series whitewash, we rate their players in the three games.

Shikhar Dhawan – 8/10

The left-hander was looking good in the second T20 before he was dismissed on 43, but he more than made up for that disappointing with a superb 62-ball 92 to lead India to victory in the final match.

Rohit Sharma – 7/10

The stand-in skipper delighted with his fourth T20I ton in the second ODI with a 61-ball 111. However, he was kept quiet by the Windies bowlers in the remainder of the series.

KL Rahul – 6/10

The right-hander looked good getting starts in each of his three innings, but he was unable to really covert them into anything substantial. Will do gown as another missed opportunity to cement his place.

Manish Pandey – 5/10

The middle-order batsman got a start in the first match but then did not get an opportunity at the middle in the remainder of the series until he came to the crease in the final game in time to score the winning runs.

Rishabh Pant – 7/10

The explosive left-hander could muster only a total of six runs from the opening two games, but then came to life with an attacking 38-ball 58 in Chennai which set up the win for India.

Pant was excellent during the chase in the final T20.

Dinesh Karthik – 6/10

Showed his worth with an unbeaten 31 to win the first T20 for India and did not get a chance to bat in the second. His wicketkeeping was also scratchy at times.

Krunal Pandya – 6/10

The spinning all-rounder started well with both bat and ball in the first T20, but then faded away as the series progressed. Was taken for 40 runs from his four overs in the third T20.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar – 7/10

The senior pacer looked back at his best in the first two games of the series, bagging three wickets. He has an expensive and wicketless outing in the final match.

Kuldeep Yadav – 9/10

The wrist-spinner continues to bamboozle the Windies batsmen with his variations in the T20 series as well and bagged five wickets in the two games he played.

Kuldeep was the best bowler from either side in the series.

Yuzvendra Chahal – 7/10

The leg-spinner did not feature in the first two games of the series, but then showed the kind of wicket-taking impact he can have with figures of 2-28 in the decider.

Jasprit Bumrah – 8/10

The pacer showed why he is considered to be one of the top white-ball bowlers in the world with three wickets in the Kolkata and Lucknow clashes. Was given a well-deserved rest in the final match.

Khaleel Ahmed – 8/10

An excellent series for the young left-armed pacer. He was excellent with the new ball in all the games, getting the ball to shape in nicely into the right-handers and bagged some important wickets along the way.

Umesh Yadav – 6/10

The pacer picked up 1-36 in the series opener, but was dropped from the playing XI for the remainder of the series.
