Denesh Ramdin acknowledges the crowd after his century against Bangladesh


Denesh Ramdin and Darren Bravo hit centuries in a record partnership as the West Indies completed a clean sweep of the three-match one-day international series against Bangladesh with a 91-run victory on Monday.

Ramdin blazed 169 and dominated a 258-run third-wicket partnership with Bravo (124) to pace the West Indies to 338 for seven batting first. It was the highest partnership for any wicket for the Caribbean side in ODIs while the total was their fifth-highest.

Needing a monumental effort to even be competitive after their capitulation for just 70 in the second one-dayer in Grenada three days earlier, Bangladesh were boosted by a 99-run third-wicket stand between Tamim Iqbal (55) and skipper Mushfiqur Rahim but were never really in the hunt and could only manage 247 for eight in reply.
