The 26-year-old has has moved to New Road for two weeks and is available for Thursday’s LV=Insurance County Championship match with Leicestershire.

He can also play for the Rapids in three Vitality Blast matches away to Notts Outlaws, Lancashire Lightning and Durham.

Waite has yet to feature in Yorkshire's team this year after finding it hard to break into their County Championship side that has not yet lost a match, but with one-day matches coming up he will be hoping to get back into the starting 11 with the white rose club.

He smashed 150 against Kirkburton in a second round Heavy Woollen Cup tie this month and hit 136 against Pudsey St Lawrence in a first round match last month while against Batley in a Bradford League Premier Division game he scored 94.
