NATHAN Round knows exactly what was wrong with Old Hill’s below par display against Attock - just about everything.

The skipper believes his side simply had a “bad day at the office” last Saturday when they could only muster a losing draw at home to their struggling opponents.

And he was ultimately pleased his side managed to avoid defeat as final pair Zafran Ali and Sharkey Hussain managed to block out the final ten overs.

He said: “I guess you’d say the main thing is we didn’t lose the game and still picked up some points.

“I think it’s an area where we’ve maybe gone wrong over recent seasons in we’ve lost our heads and lost games.

“This keeps us in contention.

“On Saturday we didn’t bowl particularly well, we didn’t field particularly well and we didn’t bat particularly well.

“If you get those three things wrong you tend to struggle in games of cricket!

“It was just one of those days where nothing seemed to fall for us and it’s not a result I think we should agonise over for too long.”

Round’s decision to field after winning the toss on Saturday appeared to be a shrewd one when Ed Denham took the opening wicket without a run on the board.

But partnerships of 84 and 104 between centurion Qamar Zaman (106) and Johangir Khan and then Arslaan Mahmood (42), coupled with some indifferent bowling and fielding, helped Attock to post 245-8 from 55 overs.

Old Hill’s reply started well enough but the loss of Mike Hingley (43) with the score on 93 led to a collapse before the final pair’s heroics.

The result saw Old Hill slip back to third in Division One ahead of Saturday’s trip to fourth placed Kenilworth Wardens.

Old Hill seconds recorded a resounding eight wicket win at Harborne.

Having won the toss and chosen to field, Old Hill were soon amongst the wickets as frontline bowlers Connor Smith (3-36), Jon Baig (1-35), Dan Such (3-14) and Jared Daniels (2-50) combined to dismiss the home side for 163 in 42 overs.

The visitors then put together a solid batting performance as in form Dan Wood hit an unbeaten 106. He was ably assisted by Joe Thorn (44) as Old Hill were victorious in just 31 overs.

A weakened third XI were no match for Cleobury Mortimer at the Love Lane Ground, losing by 102 runs.
