Bromyard Avenue lost by six wickets against Finchley after being dismissed for 80

Shepherds Bush will look to bounce back from a disappointing batting performance last week when they visit Twickenham in the Middlesex County Premier Division on Saturday.

The Bromyard Avenue outfit were beaten by six wickets at home to Finchley last time around.

Bush were put into bat after losing the toss and were all out for just 80, with Idris Otto-Mian’s 20 the top score.

Defending such a low total was always going to be a tough task and although Samuel Howell (2-15) and Oliver James (2-19) took two wickets apiece, Finchley completed their chase inside 17 overs.

It was a frustrating afternoon for Bush, who had won their previous two games in the league prior to hosting Finchley.

They will have to dust themselves down and go again at Twickenham this Saturday as they bid to get back on the winning trail as quickly as possible against a team who are battling against relegation.
