Jaipur: Opener Neil Broom produced a blistering 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.
The following are excerpts
Brendon McCullum: Neil (Broom) was unbelievable. His innings was a treat. It was such clean hitting… It is one of the most amazing innings that I have seen… We wobbled a bit at the start…
But we finally settled down. I thought the 67-run partnership between Neil and Derek was crucial. They were brilliant.
Simon Katich: It was disappointing to lose the game. With the first match being washed out, we have come under a bit of pressure. But we have a lot of potential in the side and we can bounce back.
Neil Broom (MoM): Yeah we had a slow start. We lost two key wickets there. It was important that we don’t lose another wicket at that stage.
At the same time, we needed to ensure that we keep the scoreboard ticking.
