PINT won by 4 wickets Clarke happy to let big hitters do the job BRIDGETOWN: Michael Clarke dug a big hole for himself in Fridays win over India or he simply showed his willingness to put the team first, depending on ones viewpoint. Australia has dominated its group in the World Twenty20 in the West Indies, crushing Pakistan and Bangladesh although Clarke himself only scored two and 16 batting at No. 3. In yesterdays Super Eights game against India in Barbados, Australias first wicket fell with the score on 104. Openers Shane Watson (54) (pictured) and David Warner (72) hit 13 sixes b e t w e e n t h e m a n d Watsons dismissal in the 11th over led to Clarke sending in the ultraaggressive David Hussey instead of himself. Hussey obliged with a quickfire 35 off 22 balls and Brad Haddin came in at four, throwing the bat and falling stumped for eight off seven deliveries. Cameron White, Mike Hussey and Steven Smith followed, none of whom reached double figures but Australia while not quite getting a 200-plus total they possibly should have, was still able to score 5-184. India replied with 135 and all was well in the Australian camp, with Clarke happy to take a back seat when he feels the situation dictates. Critics of Clarkes decision should remember his third-last innings, a fine 67 off 45 balls against New Zealand in Christchurch in February in a tied game. In that match, Australia was looking for a boundary off the last ball and Clarke couldnt manage it, getting run out chasing a third run to long-on. He joked later he needed to get on the weights to boost his hitting power and again yesterday Clarke was happy to concede there are bigger hitters in his side than himself and they should get priority when the time is right. Today was a good opportunity to put Dave Hussey in at three and Brad Haddin at four, Clarke said. Guys that seem to clear the rope pretty easy. I just didnt see the opportunity to get out there. It might be different in a couple of days. Hopefully not. Im happy to go the whole tournament (without batting) if were playing like that. Mahela dismantles Windies B R I D G E T O W N : M a h e l a Jayawardenes superb form at the World Twenty20 continued as he made an unbeaten 98 in Sri Lankas 57-run win over the West Indies in the Super Eights yesterday. The openers entrancing innings at the Kensington Oval was the centrepiece of Sri Lankas total of 3-195 the best by any side this tournament. But the West Indies helped last years losing finalists by m i s s i n g s i x chances during a w r e t c h e d fielding display as they lost for the first time in t h e c o m p e tition. Jayawardene (pictured), given two reprieves, faced 56 balls with four sixes and nine fours as he followed up his 81 against New Zealand and 100 against Zimbabwe with another dominant innings. The former captains average for the tournament now stands at a scarcely credible 139.5 and there is no doubt he is enjoying his new lease of life as an opener in the Twenty20 format. Whatever the role youre given, you back yourself to contribute, Jayawardene said at the postmatch presentation. Dolman spins Eagles to big win over Power ASSURED: Pints batsman Nick Baker takes for a run in his innings of 36 against Tracy Village. Picture: BRAD FLEET By GREY MORRIS DARWIN leg-spinner Josh Dolman produced five needles that burst the Palmerston bubble in yesterdays district cricket action. The Eagles crushed the previously unbeaten Power by six wickets in the 50-over game at Woodroffe. South Australian Dolman, the Eagles selection at the pre-season draft, destroyed the Power batting lineup with his 5-13 from five miserly overs of leg spin. That was after Palmerstons Darcy Short blasted a quickfire 77 from 65 balls in a one-man batting show for the home side. Short hit eight boundaries and three sixes to produce his usual array of fireworks. But it was not enough as Jack Flynns 45 from 68 balls and a well crafted 38 from Tom Briggs got the Eagles home with 20 overs to spare. PINT bounced back to form after losing two forms of the limited overs game last weekend. The Greens watched Tracy Villages New Zealand import Craig Cachopa blast a brilliant 115 in his turn at the batting crease. But the rest of the batting order and Mr Extras could only contribute 109 runs, a warning sign that was to cost the Villagers a win. Cachopa got 56 of his runs (11 fours and two sixes) in boundaries on the lightning quick Marrara outfield. PINT showed what a combined batting total can achieve when four batsmen topped 30 in a successful run chase. Sean Cockfield rubbed salt into the wounds of the Village bowlers by hitting eight boundaries in his 46 batting at No. 8 in the order. A trio of 36 scores, from Nick Baker, skipper Simon Lavers and Todd Shaw, got the Greens past the 225 required with four wickets left. V i l l a g e s k i p p e r S t u a r t Johnstone was left to lament some inconsistent batting when Cachopa was screaming for someone to stay with him. Were not going to play finals cricket if that sort of trend continues, especially when we had a one-man wrecking ball doing a lot of damage and getting no support, Johnstone said. Nightcliffs resurgence continued with another big win at home against Southern Districts. The Tigers won by 98 runs in a performance that would have given their long suffering fans something to smile about. Jon Devines run-a-ball 71 included eight boundaries and three big sixes, while James de Terte found the boundary 10 times in scoring 57 and Mark Hatton reached an unbeaten 34 despite Todd Pembles courageous 5-39 for Districts. South Australian draftee Michael Cranmer grabbed his first five-wicket haul as Districts crumbled for 119 in reply. Duane Richards 31 and 25 from No. 8 bat Nick Akers contributed more than half of that total. Tough start for Dunser DARWIN tennis player Kassandra Dunser has had a tough start to her United States tour. She was forced to play qualifying for the first tournament on her American agenda the Plantation ITF after missing the entry deadline. After a first-round bye in Florida, Dunser (pictured) won her secondr o u n d m a t c h , d o w n i n g C a n a d a s Cather ine Schulman 6-0 6-2. But the 15-year-old l o s t h e r third-round c l a s h against Alexandra Kiick of the US, 0-6 6-4 6-1 and faced being sidelined from the tournament. However, Dunser was given access to the main draw as a Lucky Loser. Her ITF ranking of 374 was high enough for her to be seeded 12th. Dunser defeated American Samantha Crawford 6-3 6-3 in the second round but then lost to unseeded Russian Renata Arshavskaya 7-5 6-2 in the Round of 16. Dunser and regular doubles partner Brooke Rischbeith were seeded No.2 for the tournament but lost in the first round to Americas Tai Martin and Julia OLoughlin 6-2 6-0.
