Trinidad and Tobago have stunned New South Wales at the Twenty20 Champions Trophy in India with a four-wicket win with nine balls remaining.

After the Australians made 170 with David Warner scoring 63 and Phillip Hughes 83 the game seemed safe but Trinidad and Tobago's Kieron Pollard had other ideas, smashing 54 off 18 balls to hand an unlikely victory to his side.

Earlier the South African side Eagles beat Somerset by five wickets with eight balls remaining

to have the English side teetering.

Somerset made 132, a target Eagles reached in the 18th over.

Meanwhile as expected Cricket Australia have officially appointed Michael Clarke captain of the national Twenty20 team in place of Ricky Ponting, who's retired from the shortest form of the international game.
