Hyderabad, Oct.19 (ANI): New South Wales pacer Stuart Clark has described Blues opening batsman David Warner as an "amazing talent" after his fantastic 40 off 16 balls in the Champions League in India.

Victoria and NSW have ensured Australia is the only nation with two representatives in the semi-finals of the inaugural Champions League Twenty20 cricket tournament, but they face formidable opposition in the two other remaining teams.

NSW booked their place alongside Victoria in the last four of the lucrative tournament with a crushing six-wicket win over English county Somerset in Hyderabad on Sunday.

The Blues restricted Somerset to 7-111 and then knocked off the runs with a massive 8.1 overs to spare.

"He (Warner) came out all guns blazing today. He's not in it for a long time, he's in it for a good time, definitely," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Clark as telling Sky Sports Radio.

"He's just such an amazing talent. He hit the ball to all parts. They put fielders where they think he's going to hit it and he somehow turns around. He just has the most amazing wrist speed through the ball," Clark added.

NSW held top spot in League A on run rate for just a few hours before Trinidad and Tobago clinched first place with a 24-run win over South Africa's Diamond Eagles in the late game of the Hyderabad double-header.

The Blues will contest Wednesday's semi-final in Delhi against the League B winners and they could mean an all-Australia clash as Victoria currently lead that section.

However, the Bushrangers will drop to second if South Africa's Cape Cobras defeat Delhi Daredevils on Monday night.

If that happens, Victoria will play Trinidad and Tobago in Thursday's semi-finals in Hyderabad. (ANI)
