Worcestershire Rapids will have to make one enforced change for this evening’s Vitality Blast encounter with Derbyshire Falcons at the Pattonair County Ground.

All-rounder George Rhodes is ruled out through injury having suffered a back spasm when bowling during last week’s tour three-day match against Australia.

He had played in the previous two Blast matches against Yorkshire Vikings and Leicestershire Foxes.

Tom Fell, Charlie Morris and Club Captain Joe Leach are the players in contention to come into the side.

They are part of a 13 strong squad announced by Rapids First Team Coach Alex Gidman.

It also includes the other 10 players last in Blast action against the Foxes nine days ago at Blackfinch New Road.

The Rapids are gearing up for two away Blast matches in the space of 48 hours.

They will travel up to Durham after this evening’s encounter to prepare for Thursday evening’s encounter at the Emiratres Riverside.
