Windies aiming for clean sweep of ODI Series

Chittagong, Bangladesh – The West Indies are determined to make a clean sweep of the One-Day International series against Bangladesh with a victory in the third and final match, skipper Darren Sammy said on Monday.

The Windies have already gained an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the series after winning the opening one-dayer by 40 runs and the second by eight wickets in Dhaka last week. A 3-0 series result would see the visitors earning four points in the International Cricket Council's One-Day International rankings.

“We are not relaxed as we still have got a job to do,” Sammy said ahead of Tuesday's match in Chittagong. “If we win the series 3-0, so it's a very important match for us. If the series ends 2-1 that means no points. If we win 3-0 that means four points.”

First ball at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium is 1.30 pm (3.30 am Eastern Caribbean Team/2.30 am Jamaica Time).

“We put in a very professional display in the one-day series and we want to continue that,” Sammy added. “We expect very competitive cricket, so we are going to focus on doing well.”
