Broadstairs Cricket Club


1st XI home to Sandwich 2nd XI

Broadstairs 1st XI got back to winning ways with a comfortable 6 wicket victory at home to Sandwich 2nd XI. Winning the toss and electing to bat in sweltering conditions, the visitors were restricted to 207-6 in their 40 overs by some disciplined bowling and fielding with wickets shared between Bradley Ellison (2-26), George Kidd (2-23), Elliot Fox (1-13) and Nathan Fox (1-23).

Tom Marshall, promoted to the 1st XI, led the reply with an impressive 58, ably supported by Marc Smith (40). A sparkling 5th wicket partnership of 85 between Matt Hardy (52*) and George Kidd (34*) saw the hosts ease their way home with 9 balls to spare.
