The home side made 289-6 off their 50 overs and then bowled out the visitors for 263 off 47.4 overs. Hetmyer made 104 not out off just 83 balls with seven fours and four sixes. It was his fourth century in the last 11 months – the others: 127 against United Arab Emirates in Harare in March, 2018; 125 against Bangladesh in Guyana in July, 2018; and 106 against India in Guwahati in October, 2018.

In the second half of the match, left-arm pacer Sheldon Cottrell took a career-best 5-46 off nine overs to mark a successful return to the Windies colours. He was well supported by captain Jason Holder, who had 3-53 to spark celebrations among the appreciative home crowd at the historic venue.

Hetmyer shared a vital partnership of 76 for the fourth wicket with left-hander Darren Bravo, who made 25. Earlier Chris Gayle made 50 off 63 balls with four sixes to record his 50th half-century in ODIs.

“It was a wonderful day for me and the team and I feel really pleased with my performance, which helped the team to win and level the series. We are on a rise as a team and we just want to take it step by step, stage by stage,” Hetmyer said.

“I started slowly and Bravo was quite helpful to me in guiding me. We played well as a team today … we batted well and batted deep. Then the bowlers did a fantastic job with the ball … special congrats to Cottrell for the way he bowled. It was great to see him do such a great job with the new ball and then come back and finish off the innings.”

The two teams now travel to Grenada for the third and fourth Colonial Medical Insurance One-Day Internationals at the Grenada National Stadium on Monday and Wednesday.
