Bears v Rapids

Edgbaston… Friday August 17th…

Rapids won by 15 runs

Ticket: £13 (Season Pass)

Attendance: 14,895

A win for the Worcestershire Rapids, one which secured them first place in the Northern Section of the Vitality Blast. No place in the Quarter Finals for the Bears, their fate having being decided by Yorkshire’s win at Wantage Road the previous evening…

Moeen Ali scored his second Edgbaston century of the season (having been dropped twice) to give the Bears a mountain to climb. In the end, they fell fifteen runs short…
