The 11th match of the Cricket Ireland Inter-Provincial Series 2021 will take place between Northern Knights and Munster Reds at the Stormont Cricket Ground, Dublin.
Current Form Northern Knights and Munster Reds:
Munster Reds have won 2 out of the 4 games played and currently occupy the third spot on points table.
Northern Knights on the other hand have registered a sole win in the tournament and are placed at the bottom of the table.
The last match both the teams played was against each other. It ended up as a no result after rain started pelting down heavily in the 17th over of second innings.
Batting first, Northern Knight got to a total of 276 before being bowled out in the 50th over. The top 3 including Paul Stirling, James McCollum and Jeremy Lawlor all failed to put on a show. It was the partnership in middle order by Harry Tector and Luke Georgeson that gave wings to the Knights. Ruhan Pretorius played very well for his 42 off 39 balls. At the back of these knocks, Northern Knights reached a comfortable total of 276 before being bowled out.
Chasing 276, Munster Reds lost its opening batter Seamus Lynch early on in the innings. After his dismissal, Peter Moor and Murray Commins partnered for the 2nd wicket and collected 71 runs among each other. Moor was dismissed by Matthew Foster in the 17th over. Around that time, the rains got heavier and the umpires instructed players to go back to the pavilion. The rain Gods didn't show any mercy and the match couldn't restart.
It is a rematch of sorts for both the teams and they would like to register a victory to proceed hassle free through the tournament.
