BROMSGROVE skipper Mark Evenson was first to admit his side didn't cover themselves in glory but still managed to grasp a draw against Attock in Birmingham League Division One.

Asked to chase an Attock total of 229 for eight, Bromsgrove finished up well short on 166 for eight.

Evenson said: "Attock is a ground where we never done really well in recent times.

"The first 10 overs were like the highlights from Sky Sports as every ball was an event ball and we were never really recovered from that.

"At one stage, Attock looked set to score around 270 but we managed to claw it back.

"We were well placed in reply at one stage when 90 for two. but then in the space of five overs we found ourselves at 115 for six.

"In the past, we would have been bowled out from that position, so there were some positives to take from the game."

Arsalaan Mahmoud led the way for Attock with 110 and found support from former Derbyshire player Rowait Khan who compiled 31 before Evenson with two for 29 off nine overs and Ashley Newfield with three for 40 managed to restrict the scoring.

Jayden Levitt then proved pick of Bromsgrove's batting in reply by making top score of 58 before wickets began to fall.

Evenson added: "It just goes to prove that every side is capable of beating each other in this division.

"We didn't seem to get the rub of the green as everything we nicked went straight to one of their players.

"We just have to put it down to one of those days and attempt to put matters straight at home to Tamworth this Saturday."
