(Cricket) Bravo saves face for Windies
(12-06 16:09)

Darren Bravo made a potentially match-saving double century to lead the West Indies to 443 for 6 at stumps on the fourth day of the first test Friday in Dunedin, New Zealand, frustrating New Zealand and preventing a third-straight innings defeat in tests.
Bravo's fifth century and highest test score _ surpassing his 195 against Bangladesh two years ago _ saw the West Indies edge into the lead, 47 runs ahead. The visitors are following-on, having been bowled out for 213 in their first innings in reply to New Zealand's 609-9 declared.
By stumps, Bravo was 210 not out and captain Darren Sammy 44.
