Full commentary

What a fantastic game of cricket that we have witnessed today. Both sides struggled at the top, yet a wonderful Maiden Century from Mark Adair gave the Knights a chance.

Adair's 108 came off only 78 balls, with 8 fours and 6 sixes, he hit the ball to all parts of the Mardyke. Sadly for the Knights, no-one else could stay with him.

Moor juggled his bowlers well with both Campher and Frost finishing off with three wickets.

It's also a historic day for the Reds. Not only do they take over again at the top of the IP50 table, but it's also the first time that they have won at home. No wonder the crowd here is so happy.

19 run win on DLS for the Reds, although you'll agree that Mark Adair is a fine choice for the player of the match.

The good news is that we are going to have more Interpro cricket this week, as the first T20 festival starts this Friday in North Down, I hope that you'll join me for all three days.

Until then, this is Justin Smyth saying goodbye from Cork.
