4.30Pm Start For Rapids Home Encounter With Durham

 Worcestershire Rapids home NatWest20 Blast encounter with Durham Jets will get underway at 4.30pm this afternoon.

Umpires Mark Benson and Martin Bodenham made a further inspection at 3.40pm and gave the thumbs up to a match of 13 overs per side.

Heavy overnight and morning rain had prevented play from getting underway at the scheduled 2.30pm start.

But sterling work by the groundstaff ensured a game of reduced overs could go ahead.

Worcestershire will be seeking a fourth successive win after last night's five wicket success over Leicestershire Foxes at Grace Road.

 They will also be looking to gain revenge for a 29 run defeat at the hands of the Jets in the opening T20 Blast match of the summer.
