Leinster Lightning extended their lead at the top of the T20 table with a 6-wicket win over Munster.

The Reds had been reduced to 45 for 4 batting first with wickets for Dylan Lues (3-24) and Sam Harbinson (2-11).

They recovered thanks to Jordan Neill's 33 and an unbeaten 54 from 41 balls (6 fours, 2 sixes) to post 159 for 8.

It wasn't enough as Tim Tector made a Man of the Match 65 (7 fours, 2 sixes) adding 65 for the second wicket with Chris De Freitas (31).

Josh Manley (3-34) took two wickets in two balls to give Lightning a slight wobble with 26 needed off 21 balls.

Seamus Lynch hit the hat-trick ball for 6 - one of four times the wicketkeeper cleared the ropes in a 9-ball 28 not out as they clinched victory with nine balls left.

Lightning are back in action next week when they travel to Tyrone to take on the Warriors in back-to-back games.
