West Indies captain Dwayne Bravo said it was the “belief” they could win which helped his team to pull off an exciting 15-run victory in the first ODI against England at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground on Friday. The allrounder added that the win was “extra special” as it came on the day when three legends – Sir Anderson Roberts, Sir Curtly Ambrose and Sir Richard Richardson, the Windies Team Manager – were knighted for their services to cricket.

“The key was belief…we believed as a team. We knew that despite the start they (England) got that coming onto the end of the match, once we kept picking up wickets and the run rate kept going up, it would be difficult for them,” Bravo said. “It also helped to have the Number 1 bowler in your team and that was crucial as we dried up the boundaries at the end of their innings. To win the first match means a lot for us. We showed alot of character to bounce back against a very good team.”
