The sun is forecast to shine next Saturday – and the ideal place to soak it up will be New Road for Worcestershire Rapids Royal London One-Day Cup semi-final!

The Rapids will be looking to turn up the heat of their own against either Yorkshire Vikings or Surrey after topping the North Group in such impressive fashion with 13 points from eight games.

Look out for some scorching strokes from the Rapids batsman as they look to seal a first Lord's final appearance for 13 years.

And also be aware of the fireball deliveries being sent down by the Rapids bowlers including John Hastings who is back from ICC Champions Trophy delivery with Australia.

But if you want to cool down why not sample some of the delicious ice creams available in Worcestershire's own pod situated on the Cathedral side of the ground.

Members and supporters have been snapping up tickets for this mouth-watering game since they went on sale last month.

But they are still available to purchase and the message is BUY NOW TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT.

Members can purchase tickets for £25 and non-members for £30 with juniors or junior members able to buy tickets for £10.

A hospitality package for the McMinn Marquee costs £60 and the The View top floor VIP package is available for £90.
