Bravo brothers provide foundation for Windies victory

3:44 pm on 17 July 2013

The West Indies cricketers have beaten Pakistan by 37 runs to win the second one-day international in Guyana and tie the five-match series, thanks largely to half-brothers Darren and Dwayne Bravo.

Darren Bravo proved the mainstay of a much improved batting performance for the home team with a top score of 54 with elder sibling Dwayne contributing a vital 43 not out to take West Indies to 232 for eight wickets from the opening 50 overs.

Pakistan were then tied down by an efficient bowling performance, ending well short of the target at the Providence Stadium, bowled out for 195 in almost 48 overs.
