Dou­ble-header starts sea­son in style

Broome Advertiser - - Sport - Robert Dougherty

The cricket sea­son has of­fi­cially hit full swing as teams hit the ovals for their first week­end of matches.

There is noth­ing like a dou­ble header of Twenty20 games to get the ball rolling on the 2017 Agrade cricket sea­son and Man­grove Cricket Club have be­gun per­fectly with a win against the Dirty Dozen.

Man­grove bat­ted first, with for­mer WA coun­try crick­eter Brian Hall thump­ing an un­beaten 94 with the bat to lift them to 5-141 af­ter their 20 overs.

The Dozen were in trou­ble early as they lost 2-11 in re­ply. Brett Mor­ley mus­tered 52 runs with the bat to keep them com­pet­i­tive but they even­tu­ally fell short at 7-127.

The Wan­der­ers Cricket Club were miss­ing play­ers as they stepped on to the ground against Roe­buck Bay Cricket Club and were found want­ing as they were bowled out for 87.

Roe­buck Bay chased with ease as they cruised to 3-172.
