Worcestershire Rapids Director of Cricket Steve Rhodes has named a 12 strong squad for the NatWest T20 Blast clash with Yorkshire Vikings at Headingley tomorrow evening.

Rhodes has chosen the 11 players in action against Birmingham Bears on Friday evening plus Joe Clarke.

Clarke scored a career best 70 in the LV = County Championship victory over Hampshire at New Road last week.

The wicket-keeper-batsman has been included in several T20 Blast squads in recent weeks.

His former Engand Under-19 team-mate Ed Barnard has already become a regular member of the Rapids side in the short format of the game.

The Rapids are still in second spot with seven wins from 11 games despite the last over defeat against the Bears.

Yorkshire – and Leicestershire – are the two sides that the Rapids will face only once in the competition this season with the county playing all other six teams home and away.
