Roebuck and Dirty Dozen play scorcher
Broome cricketers were in a sweat as the Kimberley sun beat down for the A-grade game on Male Oval last weekend.
Dirty Dozen Cricket Club played Roebuck Bay, with the Dozen sent in to bat first in the mid-day heat on Saturday.
Spearheading the runs charge were batsmen Harvey Poole and recently promoted Ian Poulter, who had been raised from around fourth on the list.
Poole made a solid impact of 55 runs, Poulter mustering a good 30 against bowling from Roebuck’s Jake Alexander, who took three wickets for seven runs to send the Dozen all-out for 149.
Roebuck eased through the chase and made the runs with four wickets down. Some expert batting from Joel Unicomb and Jood Shenki would lift them by 76 and 74 runs to finish on seven for 207.
The other A-grade match between Mangrove Cricket Club and the Wanderers was declared a forfeit because of a lack of players for the Wanderers at Broome Recreation and Aquatic Centre on Saturday.
