Scorecard summary
North-West Warriors132/8(32 overs)
Leinster Lightning133/7(26.2 overs)

There was a couple of wobbles along the way but the Lightning have Curtis Campher to thank for holding the innings together to complete a seven wicket win.

It seemed at the halfway stage that the Warriors total was a little underpar and it did turn out that way.

The Lightning have a very strong batting line up and even the lose of both openers for a duck didn't really hold them back.

There were some bright spots for the Warriors. Olphert looks like a good find and they will be hopeful that he can put the injures behind him so that he can be ready for 2021.

The Lightning were far and away the best team this season and they take home both silverware this year. The presentation for both trophies are happening in front of us.

Leinster Lightning end the season unbeaten. I'm sure that this season is one that they will remember for a very long time.

The season draws to a close, I'd just like to thank you for following our coverage of the Cricket Ireland Interpro 2020 season. It's been great to be able to bring the games to you.

This is Justin saying goodnight from Malahide.
