Broom opened the innings with Hamish Rutherford and lost his opening partner with the score on 9 in the third over. Captain Brendon McCullum departed very next ball to reduce the Volts to 9/2 in 2.3 overs with this second wicket being a particularly tough blow to endure given the value of his wicket.

That stalled the opening batsman for some time before he exploded in the fifth over, where he slammed two fours off successive deliveries off the bowling of Joel Paris. At the other end, he was helped by Derek de Boorder, who blasted a 28-ball 45 at number four.

With the acceleration coming for the Volts through this third wicket stand of 67 runs in 7.3 overs, it was all that Broom needed to get a move on. Ryan ten Doeschate proved to be just the right foil given how easily he cleared the fence and so regularly.

It was the 12th over where ten Doeschate found his mojo and hit a four and a six while Broom joined in the fun by smashing his first six in the same over too. 

That was all that Broom needed to get going it seemed. He blasted another six in the 13th over, and then carved out three fours in the 14th. His half-century came from 34 balls in the process.

At the other end, ten Doeschate also brought up his fifty and got out but Broom never failed to push the pedal further - hitting three consecutive sixes to get to his 100. He needed only 51 balls to bring up his century and 17 to score the second set of 50 runs.

Broom ended unbeaten on 117 (56 balls) with the Otago Volts scoring a whopping 242/4 in their 20 overs.
