Broom brushes Hawick bowlers aside in T20

Share this article

HAWICK & WILTON, East Division 7, gave a good account of themselves against Division 1 St Boswells in last week’s Murgitroyd T20 match.

On a slow track that was difficult for batting the home side found runs hard to come by against accurate bowling although Gary Alexander and Pierce Solley started to get the scoreboard ticking over.

Alexander top-scored on 22 departing with the score on 36 for 5. Allan Moffat was the only other batsman to reach double figures with 11 not out as Hawick reached a respectable 74 for 9 off their 20 overs.

Neil Storey and Lee Stewart bowled well, each picking up a wicket as St Boswells slumped to 7 for 2.

St Boswells skipper Steven Broom was the real difference, being very severe on any loose deliveries, not that there were many, more often than not despatching them over the ropes.

He finally fell for 47 with solid support from Ali Prabakhar on 22 not out as the visitors passed the home total after 15 overs.
