West Indies offspinner Sunil Narine consolidated
his number one position in the ICC T20 Bowling
Rankings following a strong performance in the two
match series against Pakistan over the weekend.
Narine gained 39 points after picking up four wickets
(Ave: 12.5, Econ: 6.25), creating further distance between
himself (817) and number two, Saeed Ajmal of Pakistan
(745). Only Umar Gul (857) and Daniel Vettori (850)
have achieved higher point tallies in the format.
The top five is filled out by fellow spinners Ajantha
Mendis of Sri Lanka (716), Pakistani Mohammed Hafeez
(684) and Bangladesh's Shakib Al Hasan (668). The
regional team's next best rated bowler is Samuel Badree,
who went up five places to 25th for his three scalps
at 14.33 (Econ: 6.14). Darren Sammy remained in 28th,
Dwayne Bravo fell four spots to 47th, Marlon Samuels
skipped nine places to 60th and Kieron Pollard earned
three spots to go to 74th.
Pollard was the biggest climber among the batsmen,
moving from 38th to personal best 23rd on the strength
of his 49 not out (36) and 23 (10) while Bravo (25 &
35) was also on the ascent, going up one place to 21st.
Chris Gayle (5 & 1) dropped three spots to ninth, Marlon
Samuels (25 & 1) lost one place to go to 11th, Johnson
Charles (1 & 0) plummeted from 27th to 37th, and
Lendl Simmons (6 & 3) fell three places to 39th.
New Zealand wicket-keeper Brendon McCullum
tops the list on 818 points, followed by England's Alex
Hales (777), Sri Lankan Mahela Jayawardende (753)
and the Australian pair of Shane Watson (752) and
David Warner (745).
West Indies boast three allrounders in the top 10,
more than any other team, with Samuels in sixth,
Gayle in eighth and Bravo ninth. Watson (471) is at
number one with Hafeez (432), Al Hasan (350), Yuvraj
Singh (337) and Shahid Afridi (300) rounding out the
top five. (NC)
KITZBUEHEL---Defending champion Robin Haase
stayed on course for a third straight title at the bet-
at-home Cup by beating Daniel Brands of Germany
6-4, 6-1 yesterday.
Second-seeded Juan Monaco and No. 3 Fernando
Verdasco also reached the quarterfinals, while No. 4
Jurgen Melzer lost to 19-year-old Austrian Dominic
Thiem 7-5, 6-3.
Haase saved all six break points he faced and
improved to 11-0 for the event.
"The match was less one-sided than the result
suggests," the Dutchman said. "He had a lot of chances
but I played good points when it mattered most. I
don't feel pressure as I've already proved last year I
am able to defend the title."
Brands, who beat Roger Federer in the second
round in Gstaad last week, dropped his serve four
Haase will next play Verdasco, who won an all-
Spanish match against Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 6-
2, 7-6 (7).
Thiem reached his first career quarterfinal after
recovering from a viral illness, which sidelined him
for six weeks. He converted the only break point to
take the opening set and led 5-0 in the second when
Melzer won three straight games and missed three
break points for 5-4. (AP)
