A round up of the Tri-Series in West Indies so far

A round up of the Tri-Series in West Indies so far:

In the first game, a century from Chris Gayle (left) saw West Indies race to a 6 wicket victory against Sri Lanka, after being set a target of 209.

The second game produced another victory for the host, this time against India, as 97 from opener Johnson Charles (centre) anchored the West Indies innings, chasing 230. A middle order collapse left victory in the balance but Tino Best and Kemar Roach edged their team over the line.

On Tuesday, Sri Lanka defeated India by 161 runs. Batting first, Sri Lanka made 348 for the loss of just one wicket, openers Upul Tharanga (right) and Mahela Jayawardena both making centuries in an opening stand of 213 runs. India was then bowled out for 187, as Sri Lanka raced to victory.
