Pakistan Observer - - SPORTS -

PORT OF SPAIN—South Africa’s Hashim Amla and Dwayne Bravo of the West In­dies set a new world record for a fifth-wicket stand in Twenty 20 cricket of 150 in the Caribbean Pre­mier League on Fri­day.

The pair put on their match­win­ning part­ner­ship in 92 balls for the Trin­bago Knight Rid­ers against the Bar­ba­dos Tri­dents at Queen’s Park Oval.

Amla went on to score 81 from 54 balls hav­ing brought up his half-cen­tury from 42 balls.

Bravo made an un­de­feated 66 with both men hit­ting four sixes.

They took their side from what looked like cer­tain de­feat to vic­tory in 15.2 overs.

Trinidad made 170-5 off their 20 overs be­fore re­strict­ing Bar­ba­dos to 159-8 for an 11-run win.

The pre­vi­ous record for a fifth-wicket part­ner­ship in T20 cricket was 149 set by Yo­gesh Takawale and Sairaj Bahutule in the In­dian Pre­mier League in 2007.— AFP
