Bromyard Avenue outfit lost by seven wickets at home to leaders Richmond last weekend

Shepherds Bush will hope to avoid a fourth straight loss in the Middlesex County Premier Division when they host Teddington on Saturday.

The Bromyard Avenue outfit’s latest loss came at home to leaders Richmond as they were beaten by seven wickets.

Bush were put into bat after losing the toss and were all out for 131, with Idris Otto-Mian’s innings of 28 the top score.

Though James Kidson took 2-26 with the ball for the Bromyard Avenue side, Richmond completed their chase inside 27 overs.

It was a disappointing afternoon for Bush, and one they would like to move on from swiftly.

A defeat on Saturday would see the Bromyard Avenue, currently fifth, swap places with Teddington, who are one place and one point below them in the standings.

When the sides last met in the league in June, Bush won by five wickets at Teddington with Kidson taking 6-34 with the ball and they would love to complete the double this weekend.
