Worcestershire Rapids are setting the pace at the half-way stage of the North Group in the Royal London One-Day Cup.

The Rapids are the only unbeaten side in the Group with seven points from their opening four games.

Victories have been registered over Notts Outlaws, Leicestershire Foxes and Yorkshire Vikings plus a tied contest with Northamptonshire Steelbacks.

The incentive to finish in the top berth in the North and South Groups is a guaranteed home semi-final tie on either June 16 or 17.

But this year there is a different format to determine the other two last four spots.

The second placed team in the North Group will play host to the third placed team in the South Group.

In addition, the second placed team in the South Group will host the third placed team in the North Group.

Those two ties will take place on June 13.
