Dale Steyn five-for inspires crushing SA win

Dale Steyn took his ninth five-wicket haul as South Africa beat Bangladesh by an innings in Bloemfontein
At least it was relatively quick and painless. South Africa's pace attack demonstrated the vast gap in class, picking off Bangladesh's batsmen like skittles in an alley to complete a comprehensive innings-and-129-run victory in the first Test in Bloemfontein. Makhaya Ntini led the attack with great aggression and control while Dale Steyn, upon whom so much rests for South Africa's future firepower, cranked up the pace with his ninth five-wicket haul.

South Africa needed to get a hurry-on. Yesterday's poor weather held up their march, and the forecast for the fifth day was sufficiently dire to focus the bowlers' minds. Unfortunately, Bangladesh's resolve wasn't quite so determined, and nor was their ability to counter and cope with the pace. Plus ca change…

To Bangladesh's credit, however, they did survive the first half-hour without losing a wicket to give them hope of avoiding another defeat. In part, this was due to Morne Morkel's wayward opening spell - a concern with Australia looming on the horizon. Wicked, sniping deliveries that spat off a length were few and far between and combined with wides, bumpers and innocuous deliveries that Mohammad Ashraful and Mehrab Hossain jnr could let go.

Middlesex upbeat over England duo

Middlesex are "very optimistic" that batsmen Andrew Strauss and Owais Shah will be available for next month's inaugural Champions League in India.

The pair are both in England's squad for the Test series against India.

England were reluctant to let them play because the Twenty20 event was so close to the start of the Test series, but their stance appears to have softened.

"We're getting very positive noises from the ECB", said Middlesex chief executive Vinny Codrington.
The lucrative event involving eight teams from around the world takes place from 3-10 December, with the final on the eve of the first Test between England and India in Ahmedabad.

Pakistan seal Windies whitewash

Pakistan completed a 3-0 one-day series whitewash over West Indies as a stellar display from Younus Khan guided them to a 31-run win in Abu Dhabi.
Younus hit 101 before he was bowled by Nikita Miller with Misbah-ul-Haq adding 79 as Pakistan set a total of 273.

Chris Gayle led the fightback with a battling 122 while Ramnaresh Sarwan (62) added 151 for the second wicket.

But after Sarwan's dismissal, West Indies crumbled, losing their last eight wickets for 74 runs.

Pakistan had endured wobbles of their own as they lost opener Salman Butt for a duck when he was caught by Daren Powell in the first over of the match.

But Younus came to the crease and quickly set about building the home side's score alongside Khurrum Manzoor (30).

The 30-year-old reached his sixth one-day hundred with a single off Powell, but just two balls later he attempted a reverse sweep off Miller and was bowled.

It was complete annihilation. Lahore Badshahs gained retribution for last season's defeat and Saturday's controversy by drubbing Hyderabad Heroes in style to lift the trophy. Hyderabad were restricted to 158 and Imran Nazir sizzled with a 44-ball 111 to end the chase in a blink.
The cheerleaders, who were supposed to dance after each boundary, were severely tested by Nazir's fury and could not match him in the end. When their dancing stopped, Lahore's players celebrated their triumph.

Faced with the same target on Saturday night, Lahore were strangely subdued at the start and were always behind the eight-ball. Not tonight. Nazir indulged himself, Imran Farhat watched, and the crowd roared as the white ball kept sailing into the sky. He didn't wait a ball to launch his assault. The first one, sent down by Abdul Razzaq, disappeared over extra-cover boundary for a six, the fifth flashed over long-off and the sixth screamed over deep midwicket. Twenty-four runs had come in the first over, Razzaq disappeared from the attack and Nazir went from strength to strength.
Hyderabad tried spin as early as the third over but it didn't matter a jot. Nazir didn't let any thing affect his style of play. He didn't mind the injury that forced him to get a runner, nor the dropped catch by Nicky Boje at long-on when he was on 58. He simply carried on walloping. He brought up the hundred with a fierce heave over long-on but by then Hyderabad had long surrendered.
