Worcestershire Rapids will go into today's home NatWest T20 Blast clash with Notts Outlaws level on points with Northamptonshire Steelbacks at the top of the North Group.

After the Rapids wash-out away to Leicestershire Foxes, Northants edged above them on run-rate thanks to a 26 run success over Durham Jets at Wantage Road last evening.

The Rapids and the Steelbacks have both picked up nine points out of a possible 12.

Notts faced a lengthy trip from Headingley to Worcester after last night's game with Yorkshire Vikings was abandoned without a ball being bowled.

They are currently lying in eighth spot in the table.

Birmingham Bears climbed into third spot courtesy of a four wicket win over Derbyshire Falcons at the 3aaa County Ground.

The top four qualify for the quarter-finals with the first two in both groups securing home ties.
