DHAKA, Bangladesh -- Dwayne Bravo starred with bat and ball as West Indies registered victory by 33 runs over Sri Lanka in their second official warm-up match ahead of the ICC World T20 tournament.

The allrounder made 43 off 31 balls with six boundaries as the world champions rattled up 172-5 off their 20 overs at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium. The innings was given a great start by opener Dwayne Smith with 60 (45 balls, 8x4, 2x6) and a boost at the end by skipper Darren Sammy with 30 not out (14 balls, 1x4, 2x6).

Bravo then returned with the impressive bowling figures of 3.4-0-29-3 as Sri Lanka were bowled out for 139 off 19.2 overs. Ace off-spinner Sunil Narine was again in top form with 4-0-24-4.
