The Leinster Lightning have today announced a 12-man squad for the trip to Bready to face the North West Warriors on May 23rd.

There are no additions to the squad that travelled to La Manga with Josh Little missing out due to injury.

These two sides were due to open the competition in La Manga, but that game was washed out before the Lightning defeated the Knights by six wickets, largely on the back of Andrew Balbirnie’s 125 and Lorcan Tucker’s 81.

Head Coach Albert van der Merwe is relishing the trip to the North West on Thursday.

“We’re excited to get going in the InterProvincial series again after a month of international cricket. The North West Warriors are always tough to beat at home, and we expect nothing different next week up in Bready.”

As ever, none of this would be possible without the support of Cairn Homes, something the squad and General Manager Philip Smith, readily acknowledge.

“Without the tangible support of Cairn Homes, so much of our Leinster Lightning programme wouldn’t be possible. We appreciate and value their commitment to the Lightning and Cricket Leinster as a whole,” said Smith at the squad announcement.

The Leinster Lightning face the North West Warriors on Thursday May 23rd.
