Wow what a chance a day makes? Regular wickets for the Knights meant that the Lightning couldn't build up any momentum with the bat.

Balbirnie top scored with 42 but the rest of the top and middle order fell around him. The Lightning just couldn't seem to cope with the Knights spinners, Ben White ending up with three wickets

McCarthy and Little blasted away at the end, which meant that they stopped the Knights from claiming the bonus point, a ninth wicket stand of 51 always comes in handy.

Ross Adair has just been named player of the match for his quickfire 21 and two wickets.

This is the second time this year that the Knights have beaten the Lightning, are they becoming the Lightning's Kryponite? Guess we will find out again when they play next weekend at Bready!

Knights pick up four points for the win and move into third place in the table.

Thanks for follow along the commentary today, don't go too far as it's only 90 minutes until the next game of the day. Until then, this is Justin saying bye from Pembroke

Final over and they need 33 for the win

Georgeson to Little, FOUR runs

When you can hit the ball as cleanly as this, why try the trick shots? Pulls the ball towards the square leg boundary, Little's third boundary of the over.

Georgeson to Little, no run

Little looks to reserve ramp the ball over the keeper, it's a little too full for that shot, misses and it goes through to the keeper

Georgeson to Little, FOUR runs

too short and Little pulls the ball again towards the long-on boundary, bounces once before going over the rope

Georgeson to Little, SIX runs

Little clears the front leg and hits the ball over the long-on boundary, the Lightning need a few more of them
