Big hitting Evans leads Bears to victory
A quick fire half century from Laurie Evans helped the Warwickshire Bears pull off an amazing six wicket victory against the Northants Steelbacks at Edgbaston.
The Bears looked in trouble after they have slipped to just 85-4 in the 13th over as the attempted to chase down the Steelbacks total of 149-4.
With the pressure mounting Evans (68) smashed nine boundaries including six in the space of ten deliveries to seal the Bears first victory in four attempts to rescue their stuttering campaign.
It proved to be a disappointing night for the Steelbacks who failed to defend a total of 150 after Cameron White (60) had smashed four boundaries and two sixes to put the visitors on top.
