With that push into the covers, the Knights complete a very accomplished six wicket win. Getting their revenge over the Warriors and finishing the competition in style in front of their fans. The Warriors knew that it was going to be tough to keep the Knights under 98 and Shannon set about the chase in a positive way. 62 off only 43 balls meant that the Knights where always ahead on the run-rate and didn't have to take any risks to complete the win.

The win tonight means that both teams finish the season with three wins. Yet its the Leinster Lightning who will be doing the celebrating tonight. Earlier this evening they romped to a five wicket win over the Reds down in Cork. It means that they now add this trophy to the Hanley Energy IP50, which they where confirmed winners of at the beginning of the week. Not a bad week to be a Lightning fan eh?

Thanks for following our commentary today. Hopefully you will join us again on Tuesday as Ireland's Mens team take to the field for the first time as a full member. Playing against the Dutch in the Intercontinental Cup at Malahide. Until then, this is Justin Smyth saying goodnight from Belfast.
