Profile

William Birch played twice for Middlesex in 1887 in games the county lost by an innings on both occasions. Against Surrey he took 2 for 28 opening the bowling and a month later went wicketless against Oxford. In early May he had taken 6 for 27 and 4 for 26 for Colts of South v Colts of North at Lord's, a performance The Times predicted would earn him more than one trial for the county.
