West Indies' grabbed their first and only win of the series yesterday when they beat sri lanka by 23 runs in the final T20 international.

Dwayne Bravo collected four wickets, and Ravi Rampaul three, in the visitors' defence of 162 for 6 which, like their bowling, had also been a collective effort.

The victory gives West Indies a share of the series, though Sri Lanka keeps the top T20 rank.

Bravo, who hit a run-a-ball 31 in addition to his 4 for 28 with the ball, was named Man of the Match.

Tillakaratne Dilshan struck his second fifty of the series but - although his own strike-rate was nearly 137 - his 70-run stand with Shehan Jayasuriya drew some of the momentum from Sri Lanka's innings.
