Bromyard Avenue club lost by five wickets at Twickenham last weekend

Shepherds Bush will hope to avoid a third Middlesex County Premier Division game without a win when they host leaders Richmond on Saturday.

The Bromyard Avenue outfit were beaten on their last outing at Twickenham last weekend, going down by five wickets.

Bush won the toss and elected to bat, but were all out for 178 despite opener Jack Brydon top scoring with 67.

Though James Kidson (2-41) and Dexter Marsh (2-51) took two wickets apiece for the Bromyard Avenue outfit, Twickenham completed their chase inside 37 overs.

Bush will have to pick themselves in time for this weekend’s game, which comes against a Richmond side who have lost just once in the league all season.

In the reverse fixture in June, the Bromyard Avenue club were beaten by seven wickets despite a half-century from Idris Otto-Mian.

Bush will hope to avoid a similar fate this weekend, though know it will be tough against a Richmond side that is currently top of the table.
