West Indies defeated Bangladesh by three wickets in the first One-day International (ODI) of the three match series at at St George’s, Grenada. Denesh Ramdin and Kieron Pollard guided West Indies to their win after the top order threatened to lose the game in no time.

West Indies started off on a horrible note, losing their first five wickets for just 34, with Al-Amin Hossain snaring three early wickets. Chris Gayle, Darren Bravo, Kirk Edwards, Lendl Simmons and Dwayne Bravo were all guilty of playing unnecessary shots to put Bangladesh clearly ahead.

However, Ramdin and Pollard then stitched together a tremendous century stand to put West Indies right on top. Ramdin was severe early on, but got circumspect once Pollard opened up. Both men scored vital fifties, but each was out in the dying moments of the chase to give Bangladesh a chance to claw back in.

Earlier, Bangladesh reached 217 for nine after 50 overs, with Bangladeshi opener Anamul Haque reaching his third ODI century during the course of the innings. His knock came off 133 balls with nine four and one six. This after West Indies captain Dwayne Bravo won the toss and asked Bangladesh to bat first.

The openers made a steady strat, but the middle order were unable to get in, as Bangladesh lost regular wickets. Anamul held the innings together, but played a lone hand, as West Indies skipper Bravo took four wickets for 32 runs in his seven overs. It would prove to be a vital performance, as the Caribbean Kings pulled off a close victory.

This tour comprises three ODIs, one T20 Internationals and two Tests. Bangladesh have come into this tour without their best player Shakib-Al-Hasan, who has been suspended for disciplinary reasons. That leaves Mushfiqur Rahim with a lot to do, as this is a new setup for Bangladesh with Chandrika Hathurusinghe coming in as their new coach.

Brief Scores:

Bangladesh 217 for nine in 50 overs (Anamul Haque 109, Nasir Hossain 26 ; Dwayne Bravo four of 32 ) against West Indies 219 for 7 (Denesh Ramdin 74, Kieron Pollard 89; Al-Amin Hossain 4 for 51) by 3 wickets.

Man of the match: Kieron Pollard
