For scoring a swashbuckling unbeaten century in the seventh game of the Caribbean Premier League 2016, Jamaica Tallawahs captain Chris Gayle is the Cricket World Player of the Week.

Gayle's knock came in just 54 deliveries as he helped his team chase a massive total of 192 comfortably in 18.2 overs with seven wickets in hand. His knock was laced with six boundaries and 11 sixes and it came in an innings where the second highest score was 24.

Earlier, it was Hashim Amla’s 74 with the support from Colin Munro that propelled the Trinbago Knight Riders to 191.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots had a mixed week after winning and losing a game each but Evin Lewis has been a consistent performer for them scoring half-centuries in the both the games.

In game six against St Lucia Zouks, Lewis scored 36-ball 73 and along with Devon Thomas' cameo, the Patriots reached 203 in the 20 overs. The Zouks managed only 145 in response.

In the eighth game, Lewis scored a 33-ball fifty, but failed to get support from the rest of the batsmen as Barbados Tridents chased down the target of 163 riding on fifties from AB de Villiers and Shoaib Malik.

Adam Zampa too played an important role in Guyana Amazon Warriors' surge at the top of the table after picking five wickets in the two games played during the week.

In the only Twenty20 International played between England and Sri Lanka at The Rose Bowl, Sri Lanka succumbed to another defeat after managing only 140 in their innings. Liam Dawson and Chris Jordan picked three wickets each for England.

In reply, England reached the target in just 17.3 overs with eight wickets in hand after Jos Buttler, who opened the innings for the first time scored an unbeaten 73 off just 49 deliveries.

Mohammad Shahzad's 84 runs off 91 deliveries against Scotland in the second One-Day International in Edinburgh deserves a special mention as well.

The third T20I between Pakistan Women and England Women saw Lauren Winfield and Tammy Beaumont share a 108-run opening stand. Both the players scored fifty each as England Women completed a 3-0 series whitewash.
