Broomehill remain undefeated in the Great Southern Cricket Association competition after a five-wicket victory over Wanderers at Broomehill on Saturday.

The match was played as part of Pink Stumps Day, an initiative to raise money for the McGrath Foundation breast cancer charity. Wanderers won the toss and chose to bat but found themselves in early strife after the wickets of openers Toby Quartermaine (2) and Brock Green (0).

After the wicket of Naime Siniva, Wanderers were 3-17 and despite cameos from Craig Cinch (26) and Elijah Quartermaine (28), they were bowled out by the 43rd over for 177.

Broomehill’s Jack Batchelor (32) and James Barritt whacked a combined score of 76 in a terrific opening partnership before Batchelor was dismissed in the 12th over. Liam Want (47) and Barritt (46) made important contributions, helping Broomehill reach the required total comfortably in the 26th over.

Meanwhile, Tambellup remain winless after a four-wicket loss to Australs on Saturday.

Tambellup elected to bat but were all out for 146 by the 38th over. Flynn Cristinelli (25), Nathan Willmott (26) and Devon Cristinelli (53) were solid contributors for Tambellup in the first innings but Australs made light work of their bowling attack to reach the target by the 40th over.

Opener James Douglas notched 72 and was well-supported by Kris Norris (44) at No.7. Darcy Middleton was outstanding for Australs, taking 4-29 while Norris (2-30) was also among the wickets.

Willmott (3-3) and Jedd Herbet (1-22) were the pick of the bowlers for Tambellup. GSCA president Jack Batchelor hailed the Pink Stumps Day as a resounding success.

“As expected, everyone across the board embraces the pink stumps theme and there was pink wherever you looked,” he said.

“We raised well over $1000 for the McGrath Foundation and it was fantastic to see the community come together for the event.”
