A CHARITY has been hit for six after police and restaurant staff locked horns for a cricket match.

The 12th annual cricket match between South Yorkshire Police and the Aagrah proved to be a record breaker with staff at the Woodlands-based restaurant clocking up an impressive 202 runs from their 25 overs.

Their score at Sprotbrough Cricket Club included a whopping 13 sixes and 12 fours.

The police team, whose average player was 47, could only muster 153 runs meaning the Aagrah now lead the contest seven games to five.

Money raised from the match will be donated to the Aurora Centre which has bases at Doncaster Royal Infirmary and Mexborough Montagu hospitals and which provides treatments for cancer patients.
