The West Indies were on the up yesterday.
And more importantly, so was Trinidadian batsman Lendl Simmons.
Simmons, who has had his breakthrough year in 2011, was battling with patchy form of late, but that all changed with a brilliant century that led the boys in maroon to an impressive 40-run victory over Bangladesh in the first One-Day International on the Asian continent.
Simmons scored 122, and with assistance from the in-form Marlon Samuels (71) the Windies put up 298 and lost just four wickets. They then held the home team to 258 in their 50 overs at the crease.
