BRETT D’Oliveira says Worcestershire Rapids will strive to maintain their momentum when they tackle Friday's Royal London One-Day Cup quarter-final (11am).

The County aim to make home advantage count against Somerset at Blackfinch New Road.

Rapids head into the tie on the back of victories over North Group winners Notts Outlaws, Yorkshire Vikings and then Derbyshire Falcons when they chased down a 350-plus target.

It sealed the County's spot in the knockouts for a fourth successive season.

Stand-in captain D’Oliveira, 27, said: “We set out at the start of this tournament to win it.

"I think we are on the right track at the minute and have picked up some good momentum in the last few games.

“Hopefully we can take that into the next game. We know our conditions pretty well (at New Road) and will play to our strengths.”

Opener Riki Wessels, who scored 130 off 62 balls against Derbyshire in the last match, said: “When you are winning games, like we have the last two or three, it is quite nice just to keep the games coming.

“Playing at home, we know the conditions well and what to expect. That is always a big plus.”

Wessels boasts the highest strike-rate by a Rapids player in this season's one-day cup.

The 33-year-old got 297 runs to be the County's second highest scorer behind Hamish Rutherford.

Wessels heads into the quarter-final with a strike-rate of 144.17.

Callum Ferguson tops Rapids' batting averages after his century against Falcons as was the case last summer for the Australian player.

Ross Whiteley (257), Ben Cox (213) and Tom Fell (198) are the other major run-scorers in the 50-over competition.

Wayne Parnell is Rapids' leading wicket-taker with 19 victims ahead of Charlie Morris with 10.

Daryl Mitchell has the best economy rate of bowlers used on a regular basis during the one-day cup, conceding just 5.03 runs per over.

The quarter-final winner will travel to Notts in the semis on Sunday (11am).

Meanwhile, Worcestershire seconds suffered more weather frustration as their Championship game with local rivals Warwickshire at Barnt Green was abandoned as a draw.

The second day had been washed out and the third suffered the same fate.

More overnight rain left the umpires with no choice but to call the game off at 9am.

Worcestershire collected eight points with three for totalling 277 on the opening day plus five for a share of the spoils.

The seconds hope for better luck with the weather next week during four days of action against Yorkshire at Kidderminster.

The sides meet in a Trophy match on Monday and then a Championship fixture from Tuesday until Thursday.
