West Indies got off a good start in their first game of the tri-nation series with a 62-run win over Sri Lanka.
After Jason Holder lost his sixth straight toss, West Indies' batsmen were adept at negotiating the new ball. A half-century from Jonathan Carter and useful runs from debutant Rovman Powell pushed their total past the 200-mark.
In reply, the Lankans were rocked at the beginning, losing three wickets in the first 5 overs. The West Indies bowlers maintained a tight line and length and stifled the flow of runs. Off-spinner Ashley Nurse took three wickets in his economical spell and prevented any chance of a lower order resurgence to ensure a victory.
A good performance by Jason Holder's men, one that they would be hoping to build on.
