West Indies won by 6 wkts | West Indies Vs Sri Lanka Live Score, 1st ODI Match

That is all from us here. Join us for the match on Sunday between West Indies and India from Jamaica.
Presentation Quotes:
Gayle: 'It has been a while since I got an ODI century. The last time I got a century was against New Zealand at this venue last year. The important thing is we got the win. We restricted Sri Lanka and Narine set up the game for us. Charles started off slowly but we got a vital partnership at the end. I am playing at home and that is why I adjusted to the conditions well. I just go out and play my natural game. We are looking forward to the game against India.'
Chris Gayle is the MoM for his knock of 109.
Sunil Narine: 'I go out and give my best in every match. There was some moisture on the wicket and it helped the bowlers. It is hard to get Mahela Jayawardene and Sangakkara in the same match and it is an achievement.'
Dwayne Bravo: 'It was a fantastic team effort. Roach, Rampaul set it up and Narine bowled well in the middle overs. Gayle batted wonderfully. It was important to rotate the bowlers as the wicket was flat and I was glad that we had the depth in the bowling. We restricted the Sri Lankans and that is what we aim as a bowling unit. Narine is the mystery bowler and I am lucky to have him in the team. We are looking forward to the game on Sunday. In the 29th over, we sent a message to Gayle that we need to win the game with a bonus point. I would like to thank the fans as well for their support.'
Mathews: 'The wicket was moist and it was two-paced. It was a special knock from Gayle and our bowlers had no answer. We kept losing wickets at regular intervals and Mahela Jayawardene batted superbly. The wicket flattened out towards the end and we were over-reliant on Malinga. When Gayle gets going, no bowling attack can stop him. We have to play catch-up again and we will look to win the remaining games.'
Chris Gayle has once again stolen the show at his home ground with a power-packed display. His 115 run stand with Johnson Charles laid the foundation for their win. Gayle notched up his 21st ODI century and his first against Sri Lanka. Although the Lankans came back with a couple of quick wickets, West Indies were firmly in the driver's seat and they managed to seal victory with a bonus point as they chased the target down in less than 40 overs. Join us in a bit for the presentation ceremony.
