Can anybody stop the Dirty Dozen?

That is the question on Broome cricket fans’ minds as the Dozen continue their undefeated streak, this time beating Mangrove by five wickets.

Round four of competition saw matches move from T20 matches to 35-over matches.

Mangrove won the coin toss and elected to bat first to try and obtain a workable score to possibly get an upset win over the Dozen.

However, opening batsmen Brian Hall and Mitchell Coulson exited early, thanks to Dozen bowler Angus Boult-Lyne.

Liam Bagnall soon rose to the occasion for Mangrove, managing 28 runs before being caught out by Ian Poulter.

What followed was a Dirty Dozen blitz with Mangrove being bowled out for 99 runs with only 3.2 overs until the changeover.

Boult-Lyne and Lachlan Poulter again shone with three wickets apiece, followed by Rex McCormack with two, and Casey Zepnick and Andrew Blackley with one each. Despite being halfway to being bowled out, the Dozen managed to secure their fourth straight win in just over 29 overs.

Roebuck bounced back from their round 3 loss to the Dozen with a win over the Wanderers.
