Hashim Amla struck an unbeaten 56 as South Africa eased to an eight-wicket win over defending champions Sri Lanka in the final match of the Super 10 stage of the World Twenty20. Marcus Davenport Saints Jersey . Amla guided the Proteas to their target of 121 with 14 balls left to complete a miserable tournament for Sri Lanka, who won just one of their four games to finish level with Afghanistan on points.With both sides already eliminated from the tournament, only a consolation win was on offer to the victors and South Africa cruised it despite a solid start by their opponents.Dinesh Chandimal, leading the side in the absence of the injured Lasith Malinga (hamstring), put on 45 for the first wicket with Tillakaratne Dilshan (36) in under five overs but when the wheels fell off, they did quickly.Dilshan welcomed Aaron Phangiso (2-26) into the attack by swatting the left-armer for 10 off two balls but the spinner gained quick revenge by bowling Chandimal and Lahu Thirimanne through the gate with successive deliveries.Just when Sri Lanka seemed back on track with a third-wicket stand of 30, Milinda Siriwardana (15) was sent back by Dilshan as he attempted to pinch a single to mid-wicket only to be run out by a distance.A score of 75-3 became 78-4 as Shehan Jayasuriya looped a catch to cover and seven runs later Dilshan was on his way, trapped lbw on the sweep by Farhaan Behardien.Chamara Kapugedera had no answer to Imran Tahirs googly before recalled paceman Dale Steyn claimed his first wicket of the tournament, Thisara Perera picking out Behardien at cover.Sri Lankas last five wickets fell for 35 runs and a total of 120 off 19.3 overs never looked enough even when Quinton de Kock was run out by Dilshans throw for nine.Faf du Plessis (31) made light work of knocking off the runs until he fell to a terrible lbw decision, given out as he attempted to scoop despite a big inside edge.Amla went on to post his fifty off 47 balls, passing 1,000 career T20 runs in the process, before AB de Villiers swung a Suranga Lakmal full toss for six to end the match in emphatic style.Watch England take on New Zealand in the first mens semi-final live on Sky Sports 2 this Wednesday from 2pm. New Orleans Saints Jerseys . -- Louisville backup quarterback Reggie Bonnafon ran for two touchdowns and passed for another and the No. Patrick Robinson Jersey . Miikka Kiprusoff had just announced his retirement after a decade-long run in Calgary and it would be up to Berra and Ramo to fill the void. .Y. -- The Buffalo Bills will head into the regular season short on experience at quarterback after trimming the roster on Friday.Northern Ontarios Tracy Horgan will make Canadian womens curling history next month.Kerry Galusha of the Northwest Territories and the Yukons Sarah Koltun will too. The three skips will be representing new team entries at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Moose Jaw, Sask.The addition of a Northern Ontario rink is a first for the annual womens national championship. It was one of several changes instituted by the Canadian Curling Association as part of a plan to allow equal event access to all of its member associations.In addition, there will no longer be just one team representing the Canadian territories at the Scotties.The Northwest Territories and the Yukon will now have separate entries. Nunavut could have entered a team as well but declined.The changes mean Horgan, from Sudbury, Ont., didnt have to win the Ontario playdowns in order to book her ticket for the nationals, like she did in her last Scotties appearance in 2012. The 28-year-old skip, a three-time Northern Ontario junior womens champion, beat Kendra Lilly last weekend to advance.Now this is kind of back to what were used to, Horgan said in a recent interview. Well be wearing the green and gold colours and were comfortable with that.For Galusha and Koltun, the changes mean they both get to go to Moose Jaw.The only rub for all three skips is they still have one last hurdle to clear. Theyll square off in a three-team round-robin qualifier at Mosaic Place with the winner to reach the 12-team main draw.The qualifying event begins Feb. 12 and the final play-in game will be held during Draw 1 of main draw competition two days later. The event continues through to the medal games on Feb. 22.The inclusion of a Northern Ontario rink brings the womens event in line with other national competitions. The Tim Hortons Brier — the mens national championship — is also mirroring a longtime Scotties tradition this year by including a Team Canada entry for the first time.The changes took root in 2010, when the CCA unveiled its Equitable Opportunity to Access Canadian Championships system. The goal was to create a system that would offer a fair, equal chance for curlers to access national events.Two years later, the CCAs 14 member associations approved the final implementaation phase, which resulted in the adjustments this season. Jermon Bushrod Saints Jersey. For 2016, the team that finishes at the bottom of the overall standings at the 2015 Scotties will have to go through the qualification round with this years round-robin losers and Nunavut, if the territory decides to participate. We think the model is now fair, it is now sound, and it will be great to see some of the results on the ice where as I say, every single game is meaningful, said CCA chief executive officer Greg Stremlaw. Not just for those that want to win and go on to podium excellence and represent Canada worldwide, but for those that dont want to face qualification in years ahead.The non-traditional setup offers pros and cons for the three teams in the qualifier.They have the unusual pressure of needing to peak right from the start in order to get a spot in the main draw. The qualifier winner will also have the advantage of two extra days of competition on arena ice, although that could leave them more fatigued by the end of the week. I cant even tell you what Im expecting from it, Galusha said. Im just kind of rolling with it right now.For the round-robin losers, its a long trip to Moose Jaw for just a few games of action. Its also difficult for the teams to feel like theyre actually part of the Scotties until they advance to the main draw.If youre looking at the whole Scotties event, that itself is a marathon — but weve got to do the sprint first, Koltun said. Thats what we have to focus on right away, to try to do our best right off the bat.So its definitely a little bit different.Ottawas Rachel Homan is back to defend her title. Lauren Mann will skip the Quebec entry and Heather Strong will represent Newfoundland and Labrador.The other provincial representatives have yet to be finalized.Notes: The schedule for the 2015 Ford world mens curling championship has been released. Canada will open against either the U.S., or Brazil on March 28 at Scotiabank Centre in Halifax. Medal games will be played April 5. The winner of the Brier, scheduled for Feb. 28-March 8 in Calgary, will be the Canadian representative. ...
