So the Warriors win this exciting Hanley Energy IP20 game by 12 runs. The Warriors managed to strangle the Knights batsmen.

When the boundaries were needed they just couldn't hit them and the run rate kept going higher and higher.

Plenty of the Knights batsmen got in but none of them could take it on. No one in the match got into the thirties.

All of the Warriors main bowlers took wickets, with Stuart Thompson being the pick of them with 2 for 12 off his four overs.

The Warriors get four points for the win and move themselves into 2nd place in the table.

The next game in the IP20 will be next month. Although we only have to wait till next Monday for the next Interprovinical game when the Warriors will be playing the Lightning in the IP50 in Strabane.

So until then, thanks for following my commentary today. This is Justin Smyth saying goodnight from a sunny Comber ground. Goodnight!
