Brathwaite, Bravo put WI on top

Kraigg Brathwaite and Darren Bravo both smashed centuries to put West Indies in control of the second Test against New Zealand on Tuesday.

Brathwaite scored a patient 129 to register his maiden Test hundred while the more aggressive Bravo blasted a rapid 109 to give West Indies a healthy first innings lead at the Queen's Park Oval.

When stumps were drawn on day two, West Indies were cruising along at 310 for five, leading by 89 runs after New Zealand were restricted to 221 on the opening day at Port of Spain. Shivnarine Chanderpaul was unbeaten on four while Kemar Roach was yet to score after the pair came to the crease when Brathwaite and Bravo fell in the last session.

The pair had batted together throughout most of the day, sharing a partnership of 182.
