LLG vs NK Match Preview
Leinster Lightning will be facing the Northern Knights for the first time in the second match of the Ireland Inter-Provincial ODD.
Lightning made a winning start to their competition with a six-wicket win over North West Warriors. The Warriors batted first and posted a score of 204 runs on the board. Barry Mcarthy was the show stealer as she picked up four wickets.
Jamie Grassi and George Dockrell’s 106-run stand powered Leinster Lightning to a comfortable victory with 15 balls to spare. Both players scored half-centuries with Grassi scoring 82 and Dockrell staying unbeaten at 51.
However, the Lightning will be going to face a real deal ahead in the form of the Northern Knights, who are arguably the favourites heading into the fixture. Barry McCarthy and George Dockrell will be the players to watch out for them.
Harry Tector-led Northern Knights, on the other hand, have a good mix up of youth and experience and will be looking to start their campaign with a win in the Ireland Inter-Provincial ODD. All eyes will be on Paul Stirling and Mark Adair, both of whom have starred for the national side in recent years.
