Worcestershire are set to go on flood watch after the abandonment of their LV= County Championship Division One match with Nottinghamshire at rain-battered New Road.

Although the Environment Agency has not issued immediate alerts for Worcester, the weekend rain is certain to top up the local rivers.

Club officials anticipate at least a 48-hour wait before the Severn - which flows directly past New Road - reaches its peak level. The river has flooded New Road to devastating affect before, most recently in 2007.

The final-day washout against Nottinghamshire killed off the visitors’ plans to set up a finish. With Neil Edwards on 49 not out, they closed 174 ahead on yesterday after making 88 for two in their second innings.
