Rapids Live On Sky Sports Throughout The Summer

Rapids Live On Sky Sports Throughout The Summer

Worcestershire Rapids are live on television at least five times this summer – and that number will increase if they progress to the Royal London One-Day Cup final or should they qualify for the knockout stages of the NatWest T20 Blast.

The Rapids have already been seen in last week's One-Day Cup group game away to Derbyshire which sealed their position as North Group winners.

The County eaned much praise from Sky Sports commentators Michael Atherton and Dominic Cork for achieving success with a bunch of Academy products.

Next up on Sky Sports for the Rapids will be the semi-final at New Road versus either Yorkshire Vikings or Surrey on Saturday, June 17 for which tickets are already selling at a rapid rate.

If Director Of Cricket Steve Rhodes' side win that clash, then another match in front of the Sky Sports cameras awaits in the final at Lord's on July 1.

But whatever the outcome of the semi-final, the Rapids will continue to be regulars on live TV via the T20 Blast on Sky Sports.

The first of those games will be the North Group home encounter – versus Derbyshire Falcons – on Wednesday, July 19.

Skipper Joe Leach and his players will also be featured in two away T20 Blast fixtures.

The Rapids visit local rivals Birmingham Bears on Friday, August 4 and travel to Lancashire Lightning on Wednesday, August 16.

Then if they finish in the top four – a feat they have achieved three times in the last five years – Sky Sports will feature the Rapids in the quarter-finals, and if they progress, on finals day at Edgbaston on September 2.
