WORCESTERSHIRE have moved their opening CB40 clash against the Netherlands on Bank Holiday Monday to Kidderminster after parts of New Road were flooded overnight.

The Royals have taken the swift decision to switch venues after flood levels at the County's headquarters peaked at four metres last night.

Although the flooding has not reached the wicket there remains a substantial amount of water on the outfield adjacent to the marquee.

The County will also make a decision over the coming days whether to switch their LV= County Championship clash against Surrey, which is scheduled to start at New Road next Wednesday, to Kidderminster.
