So I have my confidence back now. When I hit the first few (shots) out of the middle of the bat, I felt good again."<br /> <br /> Sarwan added 111 for the first wicket with left-hander <a href="/tags/Kieran-Powell/post" target="_blank">Kieran Powell</a>, who made 57 and maintained his good form.<br /> <br /> The well-crafted 120 not out was his career-best score - as he surpassed the 115 not out against India at Warner Park, St Kitts seven years ago.<br /> <br /> It was also his first century since his hundred against minnows Ireland in April 2010 and his 15th overall in 178 ODIs.<br /> <br /> "I have been doing a lot of hard work," said Sarwan, the premier batsman in the West Indies squad with 5,783 runs in 178 matches at an average of 43.48 runs per innings.<br /> <br /> "Everyone knows I didn't have the best tour of Australia, but I was determined to do well after I was given the opportunity to open the batting after <a href="/tags/Johnson-Charles/post" target="_blank">Johnson Charles</a> was unable to play."<br /> <br /> The Team management decided against risking Charles, who sustained a slight injury while scoring a century in the first ODI.<br /> <br /> "The management and the captain asked me to do the job and move up, and for me I saw it as a great chance to bat 50 overs and get some runs under my belt," said Sarwan who opened the innings.<br /> <br /> "I just have to continue from here and look to get better and get back to where I was a few years ago when I was fully on top of my game."<br /> <br /> The Windies won the opening match by 156 runs last Friday and the two teams will meet in the final match Tuesday at the same venue.
