Derbyshire batsman Neil Broom has taken his first-class form into Twenty20 Cricket with a brace of half-centuries for Otago in the last week.

Broom, who signed a two-year deal at the Club in September, struck five fours and three sixes in an unbeaten 70 from 49 balls against Central Districts on Saturday.

The international batsman was also in the runs four days previous as he hit 56 from 41 balls in a warm-up T20 fixture against Wellington. The 31-year old has been a consistent performer in New Zealand in recent weeks, passing fifty in seven consecutive first-class matches as well as recording three centuries.

Broom, who also holds a UK passport, will be available for all forms from next summer and is eligible to feature alongside compatriot Hamish Rutherford for the entire campaign.

Rutherford is part of the New Zealand squad currently touring in Australia, and he will be pushing for a recall for Friday’s Second Test after missing out on selection at The Gabba as Australia won by 208 runs.
