This afternoon’s T20 Vitality Blast fixture against Worcestershire Rapids has been washed out due to persistent rain.
The rain arrived 20 minutes before the scheduled toss time of 3:30pm and despite it abating shortly before 5pm, the umpires decided there was no prospect of play due to the amount of rain that had fallen in the two-hour period.
Each side gains a point from the fixture, taking the Outlaws’ points haul to sixteen from thirteen matches during the competition to date and keeping them in prime position to secure a home quarter-final in the Vitality Blast.
The point takes the Outlaws above the Derbyshire Falcons in the table and keeps them one point ahead of thee Rapids, with the last group stage fixture taking place on Friday.
A win for the Outlaws would secure a home berth in the knockout stages whilst a win for the Rapids and a loss Notts would instead give Worcestershire second place in the North Group.
There is just one further opportunity to catch the Outlaws in T20 group stage action at Trent Bridge this summer, with Durham the visitors under the Friday night lights on 30 August.
