Match abandoned at New Road

— 4 July 2014

Yorkshire Vikings again suffered more frustration with the weather after heavy rain washed out their NatWest T20 match at North Group leaders Worcestershire Rapids.

Hoping to bounce back strongly from Wednesday’s disappointing defeat to Durham Jets, play was abandoned at 7.10pm by umpires Richard Illingworth and Jeff Evans after steady rain ensured the ground was unplayable.

It is the second wash-out in the space of the last eight days, during which time Yorkshire were due to play five matches and had hoped to gain ground on the group leaders as they attempt to secure a place in the top two and claim a home quarter-final.

But after two costly defeats in the last week against Nottinghamshire Outlaws and Durham Jets, they are still clinging to the hope of qualification, three points adrift of leaders Worcestershire with four matches remaining in the group stages.
