there you go its all over. Young looks to flick the ball into the legside and gets bowled. The Lightning win!
Comprehensive win in the end by the Lightning. The Warriors needed to get off to a positive start and lost too many wickets early.
A 42 run seventh wicket partnership was never going to be enough and with only three batsmen getting into double figures was never going to propel the Warriors to victory.
So a 56 run win to start for the reigning champions. Four points for the win and they get a nice little bonus point too. So thanks for following the commentary today. Its goodnight from a sunlit Bready.
