Jaipur (PTI): Opener Neil Broom produced a hurricane 117-run knock off just 56 balls as Otago Volts recorded a comprehensive 62-run win over Perth Scorchers in the Champions League Twenty20 tournament, here on Wednesday. Riding on Broom's blistering ton, the Kiwi side posted the highest-ever total in the tournament history as they reached mammoth 242 for four after being put into bat.
Apart from Broom's breathtaking unbeaten knock, Ryan ten Doeschate tormented the Scorchers bowler with his fiery 26-ball 66. Broom and ten Doeschate rattled up a stunning 128-run partnership for the fourth wicket in just eight overs as they plundered 24 boundaries, including 10 sixes, between them. The Australian side put up a brave fight but all they could manage was 180 for six, built around Hilton Cartwright's unbeaten 69 and some superb batting by the lower-order. Scorchers were in trouble right from first over when Ian Butler struck twice. Skipper Simon Katich was run out and the Australians were gasping at 11 for three in the second over.
