The captains have shaken hands and the match has been left as a draw. The Northern Knights couldn't take enough wickets early today to give themselves a chance of victory.

A great batting performance from Leinster has saved this match from them after a first innings that they will want to forget.

Join us tomorrow evening at 5.00 p.m. for the next match in the Interprovincial programme. This time it's a 20 over match between Leinster Lightning and the North West Warriors.

My name is Kevin Gallagher and I'll be back with you tomorrow evening, in the mean time thanks for following and see you next time.
