Lancashire Lightning are next in town for Worcestershire Rapids on Friday in the NatWest T20 Blast.

Rapids supporters have been eagerly snapping up tickets for the clash with the Lightning who are expected to include England white ball star Jos Buttler in their line-up.

As a result the gates will be open to all members and spectators at 3pm on Friday – a full two and a half hours before the first ball is scheduled to be bowled.

Additional car park will also be available on the adjacent King's School ground to cater for the demand.

A reminder that non Worcestershire CCC car park pass holders can park at New Road for £10.
