Dismal start to Champions League campaign for ex-Hampshire ace Simon Katich
10:17am Thursday 26th September 2013 in Sport
FORMER Hampshire star Simon Katich has suffered a miserable start to his Champions League campaign.
The ex-Australian batsman is captaining Perch Scorchers as he attempts to win the tournament for the second time, having previously skippered New South Wales to victory.
Replying to Otago’s huge 242-4 total, Katich was run out without facing a ball as Perth slipped to 11-3 after just nine balls of their reply.
Zimbabwean Hilton Cartwright struck 68 not out and ex-Hampshire man Adam Voges (36) hit back as Perth ended on 180-6.
Earlier, Neil Broom had thrashed an undefeated 117 off 56 balls for Otago.
In the same competition, Shane Watson helped Rajasthan Royals defeat a Lions XI including ex-Hampshire seam bowler Sohail Tanvir.
The Australian – fresh from an ODI century at The Ageas Bowl - hit 33 and took 1-27 in Rajasthan’s 30-run victory.
A few days earlier, Watson had scored an unbeaten 27 as Rajasthan defeated Mumbai Indians.
