Yorkshire suffer New Road washout

Have your say

Yorkshire’s NatWest T20 Blast match against Worcestershire at New Road on Friday night was abandoned without a ball being bowled.

Rain prevented any play in the North Division fixture, which had been scheduled to start at 5.30pm but was called off at 7.10pm by umpires Jeff Evans and Richard Illingworth.

Yorkshire return to action on Monday in the County Championship against Durham at Headingley.

Meanwhile, the club have confirmed that the opening day of their Championship match against Middlesex at Scarborough on Saturday July 19 will start at noon instead of 11.00am.

The start time has been pushed back as the county are in NatWest T20 Blast action the night before against Birmingham Bears at Headingley.
