Its a win by 24 runs for the Lightning, it was never really in doubt once the had taken apart the Knights top order.

Trying to recover from losing your first 4 wickets for only 10 runs is hard to do no matter what team you play for.

Only two of the Knight's batsmen made it into double figures, so the Lightning have won the Hanley IP20 series. So congratulations to them.

Thanks for following up commentary this evening, hope that you enjoyed the game. It going to be another couple of weeks before the next Interprovinical game, another T20 game between the Knights and the Warriors.

Until then this is Justin Smyth saying good night from Comber!
