Worcestershire Rapids remain in third spot in the NatWest T20 Blast North Group after last night's wash-out against Durham Jets.

The abandoned game at the Emiratres ICG was the Rapids second call-off of the campaign after the away game with Leicestershire Foxes suffered the same fate – on that occasion without a ball being bowled.

The point collected by skipper Daryl Mitchell's team versus the Jets took them into double figures.

They are one behind Northamptonshire Steelbacks and Birmingham Bears who both have two games in hand.

The top four go through to the quarter-finals and the Rapids are currently three points clear of fifth placed Lancashire Lightning who have played one game less.

The Rapids will look to return to winning ways when they entertain Derbyshire Falcons this evening, starting at 5.30pm.

Kyle Abbott will be making his home debut after the South African paceman did not get the chance to bat or bowl last night.
