Worcestershire Rapids have announced a new start time for their Vitality Blast clash with Yorkshire Vikings at Blackfinch New Road on Sunday 15th July.

The fixture was due to get underway at 2.30pm – the normal starting time for T20 matches on a Sunday.

But this game will begin an hour and a half earlier at 1pm.

This is to avoid a clash with football’s World Cup final which kicks off in Moscow at 4pm on the same day.

It will give Rapids supporters the opportunity to watch both games should they desire.

Birmingham Bears, Friday 5th July, 5.30pm
