A lightning start by captain Ash Borella and more runs from the consistent Brendan Simmons proved crucial in North Albury’s 72-run win over Tallangatta.
Borella overcame a groin injury he’s been battling for three weeks to smash 66 from just 44 balls, including seven boundaries and three sixes, while Simmons struck his third half-century in the last four innings as the visitors scored 7-258.
The pair shared an 83-run stand for the second wicket and then Simmons put on 87 with Callum Langlands (36) to push the target beyond five runs per over.
Indian import Sahib Malhotra hit a sparkling 95 not out, but the Bushies were bowled out for 186.
