CLT20 2013: PRS vs OTG Video Highlights - Neil Broom's 117 runs
Video Highlights Perth Scorchers vs Otago Volts CLT20 2013 Match played on 25th September 2013. Neil Broom brushed aside the Perth Scorchers' bowling attack with remarkable brutality as he slammed a century - 117 off 56 dBalls - in the company of Ryan ten Doeschate (66 off 26 deliveries) to post a mammoth total of 242 for four against the Otago Voltsin the Group A match in the Sawai Mansingh Stadium at Jaipur.
Broom and Ten Doeschate's partnership of 128 from just 48 balls for the fourth wicket proppelled their side to such a daunting total.
Opener Neil Broom slayed Perth Scorchers with a blood-curdling hundred as Otago Volts preserved their perfect record in the ongoing CLT20 with a 62-run win on Wednesday. At the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, in the most one-sided of matches, Volts needed just one innings to decide what could be termed a contest only in name.
Propelled by Broom’s 56-ball 117, his maiden T20 century, and Ryan ten Doeschate’s 26-ball 66, Volts posted a mammoth 242/4 after Scorchers sent them to bat. There was only one logical outcome after a bombardment of 16 sixes and 19 fours and when Scorchers devolved to 11/3 in the second over of what would have been the biggest successful chase in all T20 cricket, the die was cast.
For the record, Scorchers managed 180/6 in their 20, Hilton Cartright top-scoring with an unbeaten 69, but there is little merit to discussing how they fared with the bat – or how Volts fared with the ball – for it was all about the havoc wreaked in the first innings.
This was Otago's 14th successive victory in the format.
