Mohammad Hafeez and Saeed Ajmal both struck early blows as West Indies reached 2-34 in their second innings when bad light stopped play 13 balls early at the Guyana National Stadium. Pakistan had been dismissed for 160 in reply to West Indies first innings total of 226. MARSHHITSOUT A rollicking century stand between Dinesh Karthik and Australian Shaun Marsh led Kings XI Punjab to a sixwicket victory over Kochi Tuskers in the IPL on Friday. Karthik (69) and Marsh (42) added 111 runs as Punjab scored 4-181 in 18.5 overs after restricting Kochi to 7-178. Punjab went through some tough moments but Australian batsman David Hussey led the team home with an unbeaten 21. DECISIONPENDING AUSTRALIA is at odds with India after strongly supporting the use of the Decision Review System (DRS) for all international matches. The Indian board (BCCI) opposes the system, and has already flat-batted this weeks recommendation from the ICCs cricket committee the technology should be used in all Test, one-day and Twenty20 international matches. ICC executives meet from June 26-30 in Hong Kong to decide on the committees recommendation. OFFER FORWARNE VICTORIA will approach retired cricket king Shane Warne to become the local face of the new Twenty20 Big Bash competition to help create membership bases for the two new franchises. Warne, if available, would be involved in marketing the competition which is seen as a financial boon, television bonanza and different outlet to lure new audiences. Media guru, North Melbourne Football Club chairman and former WA Sheffield Shield cricketer James Brayshaw is a hot tip to be chairman of one of the Victorian franchises. Waratahs recruit Michael Hill looks back to see his stumps have been shattered Picture: BRAD FLEET Drops in, blasts runs, and leaves By GREY MORRIS I only played this gamebecause Iwas in Darwin for the Arafura Games A DARCY Short cameo steered Palmerston to a 150-run win over Waratahs in yesterdays district cricket match at Gardens Oval. Short smashed 15 boundaries and cleared it five times to catapult the Power to 8-316 from their 50 overs. That left the Red Caps with a big run chase in excess of six runs an over, a score they were never going to get after left-arm finger spinner Luke Doran got to work. He bowled Tahs skipper Brett Gardiner off his pads and got rid of hard-hitting pair Brad Schmulian (leg before) and Ryan Green (caught) when both of them were in full flow. Tahs battled to 166 all out, Victorian shield cricketer Michael Hill managing to contribute just one when he was bowled by spinner Udara Veerasingha. Shorts hurricane innings was only a brief flirtation with the local season because he is focused on a full-time move to Perth. Thats my last game until the finals, I only played this game because I was in Darwin for the Arafura Games, he said. Meanwhile, PINTs unbeaten run continued when they beat a spirited Southern Districts by 34 runs at Kormilda College. It was Greens skipper Nick Berrys first look at the picturesque ground and he liked what he saw. Berrys unbeaten 125 included 19 boundaries and seven sixes, though he was given a life on 19 when James McDonald dropped him on the square leg boundary. Opener Grant Bells brilliant century (101no) almost lifted Districts to victory, but it was medium-pacer Adam Bayly who won the game for the Greens with his 3-28 from 10 overs. Tracy Village beat Darwin by 35 runs at Kahlin Oval, with Craig Cachopa (65), Jason McKay (48no) and Jonathan Crowe (47) doing the damage. Blake Giarola (59) and Jake Fawcett (39) kept Darwins score ticking over until Village medium-pacer Stuart Johnstone (3-25) and leg spinner Chris Campbell (3-39) reined them in.

Tracy Villagewonby 35 runs Zappia just too zippy at Hidden Valley MOTORSPORT ByGREYMORRIS John Zappia recorded the first five-second pass at Hidden Valley on Friday TERRITORY drag racing fans got a sight they have never witnessed in the 26-year history of Hidden Valley Drag Strip when John Zappias HQ Monaro beat the six-second mark. The first five-second Top Doorslammer pass came during the Macmahon Grand ReOpening. Zappia had their crowd on their feet with his first and only pass, smashing the quickest and fastest time ever run at the Valley. The Perth Flash stopped the timer at 5.936 seconds after reaching 238.72mph on the quarter-mile strip. It was only 0.131 seconds short of the national record and brought a big roar from the 6000-strong crowd. The night had started with most teams playing it safe as they tried out the new Hidden Valley surface for the first time. NSW-based Ivan Skaramuca was leading the Doorslammer qualifying field with a 6.781 second pass at 189.36mph, followed by Martyn Dack with a 7.464 at 137mph. Unfortunately the Territory teams of Matt Abel and Scott MacLean did not feature in the top half of the field. MacLean left qualifying early after damaging the rear end to ensure it would be prepared for last nights racing. With temperatures dropping to 17 degrees the teams decided to give the Hidden Valley crowd a bit of excitement during the second qualifying session. Six teams were to reset the quickest pass for the night in quick succession all under 6.6seconds.
