Denesh Ramdin and Darren Bravo wrote their names in the record books with hundreds in pacing the West Indies to 338 for seven against Bangladesh in the third and final one-day international on Monday. Seeking a clean sweep of the series following victory in the first two matches in Grenada, Ramdin’s blistering 169 in a 258-run third-wicket partnership with Bravo (124) dominated the home side’s effort after they were put in to bat and lost both openers with just 12 runs on the board.

Their stand was the highest for any wicket in ODIs for the West Indies while Ramdin’s effort, highlighted by 11 sixes and eight fours off 121 balls, equalled batting legend Brian Lara for the third-highest individual innings by a West Indian in one-dayers. Only Sir Viv Richards, arguably the greatest of the many batting masters from the Caribbean, has higher individual scores — 189 not out against England in Manchester in 1984 and 181 against Sri Lanka at the 1987 World Cup in Karachi.

Bravo may have been overshadowed by the wicketkeeper-batsman’s big hitting, but he eventually unfurled his most fluent and powerful shots, hammering eight sixes and seven fours off 127 deliveries before a tired swing at off-spinner Mahmudullah brought about his demise to a catch at backward-point.

Yet Bangladesh were left to rue what could have been for their captain, Mushfiqur Rahim, missed a straightforward stumping chance off Abdur Razzak when Bravo was just on ten. Razzak himself was subsequently at fault in the field as he moved lethargically at mid-on towards a miscued swing by Ramdin, then on 35, off Mashrafe Mortaza.

As in the first two ODIs in Grenada, Al-Amin Hossain impressed with the ball. He removed the dangerous but out-of-form Chris Gayle to a catch at the wicket early on and then returned to add the key wicket of Darren Sammy in the 48th over. He was even more impressive in the final over, conceding just two runs and dismissing Ramdin and Jason Holder off successive deliveries to finish with the deserved figures of four for 49, lifting his tally of wickets in the series to ten. Mahmudullah was the most economical however, delivering his ten overs at a cost of 48 runs.

Brief scores:

West Indies 338 for 7 (Darren Bravo 124, Denesh Ramdin 169; Al-Amin Hossain 4 for 59) vs Bangladesh.
