Ace South African batsman
Hashim Amla warmed-up for the
upcoming Tri-series against West
Indies and Australia with an
excellent 92 against the West
Indies Cricket Board (WICB)
President's XI at the Queen's Park
Amla opening the batting looked
in supreme form and took charge
of proceedings after T&T player
Rayad Emrit sent back fellow
opener Riley Rossouw with a run
on the board. Amla faced a total
of 83 balls, striking 10 fours a a
six to send an ominous sign to
West Indies and Australia. He
innings allowed South Africa to
post a total of 280 for nine of their
50 overs and up to press time, the
WICB President s XI was reply-
Also getting among the runs was
all rounder Kyle Abbott who
smacked 43 of 38 balls with four
fours and a six. Fellow all rounders
Chris Morris and Aaron Phangiso
also utilised the opportunity well
and spent time in the middle. Mor-
ris just coming back from the Indi-
an Premier League (IPL) scored 31
of 24 balls with two fours and a
six, while Phangiso made an
unbeaten run-a-ball 34 with two
fours and a six.
T&T s Steven Katwaroo got a
run with the South Africans, as
both their wicketkeepers AB de
Villiers and Quinton de Kock were
involved in the IPL finals in India
yesterday. Katwaroo came in at
number seven to bat and scored
21 of 21 balls with three fours. With
South Africa struggling at 151/5,
he featured in a sixth-wicket part-
nership of 47 with Morris.
Jamaican leg-spinner Damian
Jacobs caught the eye with four
wickets for 53 runs, with Wind-
ward Islands left arm pacer Delorn
Johnson was impressive with 1/35
of 10 searching overs.
The South Africans will leave
T&T tomorrow and head to
Guyana, where they open their
challenge in the Tri-series against
the hosts West Indies on Friday,
at the Providence Stadium.

Foreigners speed to 100
titles at Hampton Games
IPL cricket crown
BANGALORE---West Indies batting
star Chris Gayle smashed a whirlwind
half-century and passed 9 000 runs
in Twenty20s but his effort was in
vain as Sunrisers Hyderabad edged
Royal Challengers Bangalore by eight
runs to lift the 2016 Indian Premier
League here yesterday.
Chasing an imposing 209 for victory
in the final at the M Chinnaswamy
Stadium, RCB were propelled by the
left-handed Gayle s top score of 76 off
38 deliveries with four fours and eight
He put on 114 for the first wicket
with the prolific captain Virat Kohli
who hammered 58 off 34 balls but once
they were separated, the RCB innings
collapsed from 140 for one as six wick-
ets tumbled for 54 runs.
RCB required 18 from the last over
but seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar proved
brilliant, conceding just nine runs.
The foundation of Sunrisers victory
was laid by captain David Warner who
pummelled 69 from 38 deliveries at
the top of the order.
Fellow Australian Ben Cutting, voted
Man-of-the-Match, stroked an unbeat-
en 39 from just 15 balls with three fours
and four sixes while veteran left-hander
Yuvraj Singh hit 38 from 22 deliveries.
The left-handed Warner, who count-
ed eight fours and three sixes, put on
63 for the first wicket with Shikhar
Dhawan (28) and a further 34 for the
second wicket with another Australian
Moises Henriques (4).
Gayle, who shared the new ball, fin-
ished wicket-less from his three overs
of off-spin which cost 23 runs while
Barbados-born England seamer Chris
Jordan claimed three for 45.
Needing to score at 10.45 an over,
RCB were given a flying start by the
mercurial Gayle. His first 16 runs need-
ed 13 deliveries but he teed off in the
third over from left-arm seamer
Barinder Sran which went for 16 runs,
twice clearing the boundary and then
finding it on another occasion.
The Jamaican reached his half-cen-
tury off 25 balls by belting Henriques
over long on off for six and he combined
with Kohli to rip into the Aussie seamer
in the ninth over which leaked 21 runs.
Gayle seemed en route to his 18th
T20 hundred when he miscued a big
hit at seamer Cutting and was caught
at third man.
One of the world s leading T20 bats-
men, Gayle now has 9 066 runs in the
game s shortest format.
Kohli carried on, raising his half-
century with a six off Sran in the 13th
over but he fell a couple balls later in
the same over, as Sunrisers hit back
