Milestone
Sourya: So West Indies have fought hard and won this three-match series against England in deserving fashion. We hope you enjoyed our coverage of this game. It is time for me Sourya Chowdhury, to say goodbye on my and my fellow commentators Subham Agarwal and Anirudh Modi as well as our scorer Zeeshan Naiyer's behalf. Good night.
England Captain, Joe Root: Been a frustrating Test match, we showed a lot of fire in the first innings. Yesterday was a very bad day for us and we couldn't manage it well, as we did in the first two games. We took a few strides forward in the first two games, but credit to the West Indies for this test match. We didn't read the surface as well. There's still a lot of learning that needs to be done, we need to keep working hard. The most important thing is to make improvements and keep moving forward. Jack Leach has been exceptional. Lawrence showed a lot of promise and is a very exciting player! I think we have learned a lot as a group, the most important thing is to keep that attitude. I think I made it clear that I am passionate about this team, that has not changed. We are so lucky to get the support that and we hope to get better as we play more.

Kraigg Brathwaite, West Indies captain: โ€œI feel fantastic about my batting, but happier that the team won, also a big thanks to the fans who turned up here at Grenada to support us. I was working on my balance before the series, putting in the hours. Itโ€™s been remarkable, Bonner leading the way, then Jason, Kemar also played a big role, then Da Silva and Seales. Also Alzarri, it was a total team effort. I think we sat down and decided we wanted to fight hard at home, we worked four-five hours a day six days a week. In every game, someone put up the hand to do the job. The effort was amazing. I learned a lot on the job. Guys like Joshua and Alzarri are willing to learn and get better and work. Holder and Roach are the seniors leading the way and great examples. To show the fight and attitude was amazing and we need to continue this and not take this for granted. We canโ€™t relax. We have some first-class games in May, before our next Test series and we need to keep hungry. Great support here, want to thank them, the pitch also offered something, and kudos to England for making it a great series.โ€

Player of the match, Joshua Da Silva: "Not at all, the century is still there. I jumped at this and it was a great achievement, hopefully lots more to come. I trusted the batsmen as much as I could, and they stuck with me till the end, they are why I have this. I just did my part! It was quite challenging keeping on this surface, I hold high standards for myself, it was a bit tough but overall I had a good series. I could still do better, get fitter, it's only just started, I have got a taste of one, so hopefully it keeps on coming."
Time for the post match presentation. 
Sourya: So the Richards-Botham Trophy belongs to the West Indies for now! After two attritional stalemates, the combatants moved to the spice isle, Grenada, for the series decider. And we were served a completely different Test this time around. West Indies had won the toss and bowled first and what a great bowling performance it was. Mayers and Co. wrecked the England top-order on Day 1 to leave then reeling, before a fine last-wicket partnership helped England claw past 200.  A fine century from keeper Joshua Da Silva gave the hosts a handy lead.
And then, with the match in balance, Mayers did an encore with a brilliant five-for to snuff out all English hopes of a comeback. Roach and Seales played fine supporting hands, ensuring the Test was over even before the fourth day began.
The visitors began the day at 103/8 and only added 12 more runs to leave the hosts a paltry target of 28 that Brathwaite and Campbell knocked off in quickfire fashion. 
For the Three Lions, it is back to the drawing board. After putting immense pressure on the Windies in the first two Tests, they were thoroughly outplayed in the final Test and Joe Root, who had a good series with the bat but failed in the decider, possibly on his way out of captaincy duties after back-to-back series losses including the Ashes debacle.
It is too early to say that West Indies are back as a Test team, especially after winning a series against fellow Test strugglers, but they have found players like Seales, Mayers and Da Silva, as well as skipper Brathwaite, who might engender a bright new era for the side in the longest format.
