COUNTY Cricket will be back in Kidderminster after flooding forced Worcestershire to look for a new home.

Their Blackfinch New Road stadium was left under water after recent heavy rain which means they could not host a scheduled fixture against Sussex.

The game will be played at Kidderminster's Chester Road ground starting on Tuesday June 18 at 11am.


Worcestershire CEO Matt Rawnsley, “This is not an ideal situation and we would always prefer to play at Blackfinch New Road, however the change of venue gives us the best chance of playing next week’s fixture.

“Kidderminster Cricket Club has hosted many first class fixtures over the years and we are extremely grateful for their assistance at such short notice. We would also like to thank the ECB and Sussex County Cricket Club for their corporation.”
