Roe­buck and Dirty Dozen play scorcher

Broome Advertiser - - Sport - Robert Dougherty

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.
