Amla, Bravo in record fifth wicket stand

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 match-winning 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.

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.
