Earlier three wickets apiece for the hosts Dylan Cleary and Kripesh Shetty had the Munster side in real trouble, but a 7th wicket stand of 96 between Nabeel Anjum - who hit 7 fours and 2 sixes in his 37-ball 55 - and top scorer Sunil Gautum (59: 7 fours) gave their side something to defend, but in the end nowhere near enough.

The impressive Nasir Totakhil took 2 for 9 in his four-overs spell, while there were also a brace for fellow spinner Nathan McGuire.
