None of their first three bowlers - Sandeep Sharma, Mohit Sharma and Varun Aaron - struck in their first spells.

The duo forged a 125-run partnership for the second wicket in 89 balls.

Amla, known for his classic batting and being more of a player for the Test fold, has been proving his critics wrong as he continues his onslaught in the shortest format of the game.

Smith was given another life on 51 when a hoick down the ground from the bowling of Maxwell was put down by the incoming Gurkeerat Singh. When told that many think T20 cricket is all about hitting fours and sixes nearly every ball, Amla said the format forced every player to get a way out to "maximise each ball".

"I don't think I wanted to save it for the last".

The 91-run stand finally ended when T Natarajan (1-32) had Kishan caught at deep midwicket and in the next 10 deliveries, both Smith and Suresh Raina (39) smashed two sixes and three boundaries combined to ease the required run rate.

Later on Sunday, sixth-placed Arsenal, who are 10 points behind Liverpool with three games in hand, host fifth-placed Manchester United, who are five adrift of Jurgen Klopp's side, having played two matches fewer.

Predators take 2-1 series lead, beating St. Louis Blues 3-1
NASHVILLE, Tenn . (AP) - Music, barbecue sauces and local candies are at stake in the Western Conference semifinal between the St. The Nashville Predators drew their highest-ever local television rating for Sunday's Game 3 3-1 playoff win against the St.

The partnership was broken in the sixteenth over soon after Marsh (58) had brought up his half-century; the Australian made 58 and hit six boundaries in his 43-ball outing. This was his second century for KXIP this season, the previous one being against Mumbai Indians. The way Suresh Raina and Dinesh Karthik played against DD shows their class.

Marsh's departure prompted Amla to go on the offensive and the South African star hit two sixes off consecutive overs.

With their chances of making it to the playoffs dashed, Gujarat Lions made the road ahead a tricky one for Kings XI Punjab by defeating them by six wickets.

The Lions would get over the line with six wickets and two balls to spare.

Wenger overcame Mourinho s Chelsea in the 2015 Community Shield, but this was the first time he had got the better of his old foe with league points at stake.

Captain Glenn Maxwell chipped in with an unbeaten 20 from 11 balls to put the home side in a seemingly commanding position at the halfway stage in Mohali. However, most of his efforts have not been complimented well by the bowling and fielding unit. Basil Thampi and James Faulkner followed well, and the runs dried up.

Gujarat pacers Thampi, Pradeep Sangwan and Dhawal Kulkarni picked up a wicket each.
