5:48 am on 26 September 2013

Opener Neil Broom hit an unbeaten century to lead the Otago cricketers to a 62-run win over the Perth Scorchers in the Champions League Twenty20 tournament in India.

Broom hit 8 sixes and 9 fours in a 56-ball 117 as Otago made 242.

Derek de Boorder made 45 and Ryan ten Doeschate 66.

Otago then restricted Perth to 180 for 6 with Iain Butler taking 3 wickets.

A win in one of their last 2 matches should qualify Otago for the semi-finals.
