Kingston:

A fine century knock by veteran Shivnarine Chanderpaul saw hosts West Indies - who were without captain Chris Gayle - ease to a 208 run victory over Canada in their One-Day International on Tuesday.

The 35-year-old hit 101 off 120 balls including six fours and a six - his 11th international one day century - as West Indies racked up a total of 316 for 4 off their 50 overs in what is a warm-up for the World Twenty20 which gets underway later this month in the Caribbean.

Dwayne Bravo also contributed 74 off 75 balls including two sixes whilst the match featured the return of class batsman Ramnaresh Sarwan for the first time since he returned home from the tour of Australia late last year with a back problem.

Sarwan showed he was in good order as he hit a quickfire unbeaten 47 off 26 balls with six boundaries including a six.

Canada were never in the hunt to even challenge the total with just Umar Bhatti putting up much resistance with 32 not out - Nikita Miller returning the best figures for the West Indies of 3-15.
