Evin Lewis (52 from 34) gave West Indies a fast start to their chase, but the remainder of the batting line-up struggled to score at his rate and they soon fell off the pace, leaving too much to do in the final few overs.
Seamer Lungi Ngidi saved his best performance for the last game in the series as he recorded figures of 3-32.
