As things were heating up in ESCA div 4, on this day The Cairns hosted Royal High Corstorphine’s 3rd XI.

To keep with tradition, Chris won the toss and elected to field first in the ever changing weather conditions.
Whilst mild precipitation dawned over Charlestown, Chris took the opportunity to get the first wicket after a routine catch from Phil Ward.
The wickets seemed to be depleting after a catch from Thomas and an LBW for Chris however the next batsman decided to make their mark.
At 20 overs RHC were 82/3 and Broomhall needed to tighten up.

Fortunately luck was on our side after a superb catch from The Vicar of Dibbly and some more wickets saw RHC finish with 131.
Another good day for Ali G who managed to pick up 3 wickets
Batting for Broomhall started with a left and right combination of Joe and Ieuan. Joe starting the innings using his dads bat, thus leading to the 2 runs off of 28 balls. This doesn’t take away from the 47 partnership he shared with Ieuan.
Ieuan quickly moved to his 50 until he was bowled after trying to removed the leather from the ball. Was this to be the collapse of Broomhall?
Fortunately not as Thomas racked up a quick 9. And Chris... batted.

Euan Breen and Ali G were at the crease and batted well together. Unfortunately after playing one of the best shots of his life, Euan lost wicket in the most Broomhall of fashion.
To finish the innings were Phil and Ali. Ali did his best to sail to 50 hitting many beautiful 4s and the odd 6, but it wasn’t to be as Broomhall got to the total with Ali finishing on 47.
Broomhall win by 6 wickets.

MoTM: Ali Gudgin for superb bowling and batting
DoTD: Paul Gudgin. He wasn’t playing, but his commentators curse was disgraceful.
