Windies level series in Guyana

West Indies levelled their series against Pakistan after completing a 37-run victory in the second one-day international in Guyana.

Darren Bravo made 54 while half-brother Dwayne Bravo added an unbeaten 43 as the home side made 232 for eight from 50 overs, aided by a Pakistan attack that conceded 38 extras.

Despite opener Nasir Jamshed making 54, the run chase fell short as Sunil Narine took 4-26 with the visitors skittled out for 195.

Mohammad Irfan removed Chris Gayle in the first over of the day but Darren Bravo and Johnson Charles settled West Indies down, adding 80 runs for the second wicket either side of a rain delay.

After Charles was stumped off Shahid Afridi, Bravo and Marlon Samuels put on another 50 before the former was bowled by Saeed Ajmal.

The Windies were sitting on 150 for five with 11 overs left, after which Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard added a blistering 70 runs in 10 overs before the latter was dismissed by Asad Ali.

Pakistan’s reply got off to a slow start, with opening pair Jamshed and Ahmed Shehzad surviving the first 10 overs but only adding 33. Shehzad was caught behind off Kemar Roach in the next over but Jamshed survived three dropped catches on his way to a fifty.

When he was ousted by Pollard, Pakistan were 137 for five. However, their next five wickets fell for just 58 runs, Afridi only making five before being stumped off Narine.

Umar Akmal hit 50 from 61 balls but it was all in vain as the hosts comfortably levelled the five-game series.
