GROS ISLET, St. Lucia (AP) — Captain Dwayne Bravo hit a rapid 48 and guided West Indies to 242-7 in the fifth and final one-day international against Pakistan on Wednesday.

Bravo's knock off 27 balls included five fours and three sixes after Pakistan fast bowlers Junaid Khan (3-48) and Mohammad Irfan (2-34) had mopped up the top order and restricted West Indies to 170-6 in the 45th over.

But Bravo dominated a 53-run seventh wicket stand with former captain Darren Sammy (29 not out) to give West Indies hope of leveling the five-match series it trails 2-1.

Marlon Samuels (45) and opening batsman Johnson Charles (43) also made useful contributions, but Chris Gayle's disappointing series ended when he was brilliantly snapped up for 21 by wicketkeeper Umar Akmal with his right hand over his head.
