Rapids Learn Of Home Opponents In 2015 Royal London Cup

Rapids Learn Of Home Opponents In 2015 Royal London Cup

The fixtures for the 2015 season are scheduled to be released in mid November but Worcestershire know already who are their home opponents for the second season of the Royal London One-Day Cup.

The Rapids will play host in Group A to LV = County Championship winners Yorkshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Gloucestershire in the 50 over competition.

Yorkshire, Northamptonshire and Leicestershire will be visiting New Road in the RLC for the first time while Gloucestershire were amongst the county's home opponents in 2014.

Worcestershire's away fixtures in the RLC will be against Surrey, Derbyshire, Somerset and Durham.

Surrey, Durham and Somerset will be new group opponents for the Rapids compared to the 2014 season.

But next season they will not face Essex, Lancashire and Hampshire who were part of their group this summer.

Worcestershire just missed out on a spot in the quarter-finals after losing their final two games to Gloucestershire and Leicestershire.

In the NatWest T20 Blast, the groups will remain split into North and South sections.

Worcestershire will play six counties home and away and the other two on one occasion in a group of 14 matches.

In 2014 the Rapids faced Leicestershire Foxes and Yorkshire Vikings only once in reaching the quarter-finals for a fourth time.
