Scorecard summary
Leinster Lightning169/7(20 overs)
North-West Warriors128/10(19.2 overs)


So a comprehensive win for Leinster Lighting with wickets shared between all the bowlers.


The North West team were in with a chance of chancing the total down but the relentless pressure from the Lightning bowlers proved too much. As runs became harder to get the wickets fell and the chances dropped off quickly.


The North West batsman struggled with only Marco Marais and Andy McBrine establishing themselves. Other than that there wasn't a whole lot on offer.


The next Hanley Energy IP20 match is Northern Knights against the North West Warriors on May 27th.


The next action in the Interprovincial series is sooner than that however with Leinster Lighting travelling to Stormont to play the Northern Knights in a 3 day Championship match starting May 17th.


Both of those matches will be covered live here on ESPN Cricinfo so make sure to join us then. In the meantime thank you and good night from Merrion Cricket Club.
