Broomehill remain undefeated in the Great Southern Cricket Association after recording a strong seven-wicket win against Australs in Broomehill on Saturday. Jack Batchelor produced a terrific all-round display to guide Broomehill to their second straight win. Batchelor took four wickets with the ball to restrict Australs who batted first before posting a half century to steer his side to a comfortable victory. Needing just 121 for victory, Broomehill made light work of the run chase as they passed the total in the 22nd over for the loss of only three wickets. James Barritt was removed early by Michael Dark but Batchelor and Lewis Barritt quickly took control of the run chase. That pair added 83 as Batchelor lifted the scoring rate and Lewis Barritt played a strong support role. Batchelor was caught for 58 from as many balls with his innings including seven fours and his side were 2-93 when he departed. Lewis Barritt was caught for 17 but his side was in control only requiring 14 for victory and some late hitting from Ethan Caldwell (12 no) got them across the line. Australs could only manage 9-120 from their 45 overs batting first after their middle and lower order collapsed. Batchelor took the first two wickets for Broomehill before Kris Norris and Dark combined for a 40-run partnership. Norris was caught for and Dark left soon after to leave Australs 4-90. Batchelor took the next two wickets as Australs lost 5-31 following Dark’s dismissal. In a very tidy spell, Batchelor snared 4-20 off nine overs while Wayne Newbey was also vital with 2-8. Dark top scored with 23 while Norris (22) and David Pink (21) all got starts but failed to go on with it.
