Oak Hill, 5 June.
North West Warriors 231 (49 overs: Marcello Piedt 59, Jared Wilson 48, Andy McBrine 33, Stephen Doheny 25; Josh Manley 3-26, Michael Frost 2-29, Nicolaj Damgaard 2-42, Liam McCarthy 2-51)

Mark Adrianatos scored 60 not out (Cork County CC)
Munster Reds moved into second place in the table leaving the North West Warriors joint bottom in a tense contest at Oak Hill. Batting first, the Warriors were struggling at 123 for 7despite runs for skipper Andy McBrine (33) and Stephen Doheny (25). An 8th wicket stand of 66 in 9 overs between Jared Wilson, who hit 4 fours and 2 sixes in a breezy 48, and Marcello Piedt got the innings back on track. Brigade overseas professional Piedt cleared the ropes four times as well as thumping 3 fours in a top score of 59 from just 43 balls, shepherding the tail to a total of 231. Josh Manley picked up three wickets, while there were two apiece for Mike Frost, Nicolaj Damsgaard, and Liam McCarthy. Munster's chase followed a similar pattern after a bright start by Ollie Metcalfe, who hit eight fours and a six in a rapid 53. The visitors fought back and at 143 for 6 the match was very much in the balance. Cork County's South African overseas player Mark Adrianatos was the Reds' hero though as his unbeaten 60 (6 fours, 1 six) got them over the line, securing the two-wicket win with four balls remaining.
Northern Knights beat Leinster Lightning by 8 wickets (DLS)
Stormont, 5 June.
Leinster Lightning 132 (35.3 overs: Gavin Hoey 39, Seamus Lynch 26; Ruhan Pretorius 4-30, Cian Robertson 2-15, Matthew Humphreys 2-31)
Northern Knights 131/2 (20.2 overs: Jason van der Merwe 53, Sam Topping 45) (Target 130 in 47 overs)
Jason van der Merwe (CricketEurope)
The Northern Knights stayed top of the table with an 8-wicket demolition of Leinster Lightning who find themselves in an unfamiliar position at the bottom after the mauling. Ruhan Pretorius (4-30), and the left-arm spinning duo of Cian Robertson (2-15) and Matthew Humphreys (2-31) did the damage as Lightning were bundled out for a pitiful 132. Even that represented a recovery as the Dubliners were at one stage 50 for 6 - Gavin Hoey (39) and Seamus Lynch (26) added 55 for the 7th wicket. The chase was a straightforward one as Jason van der Merwe thumped 5 fours and 4 sixes in a belligerent 53 from just 36 balls, as he and Sam Topping (45) added 83 before the stand was ended one ball before the end of the powerplay. It mattered little as the Knights eased to victory in the 21st over. A day to forget for Leinster Lightning.
Northern Knights beat Munster Reds by 81 runs (DLS)
Stormont, 29 May.
Northern Knights 279/7 (43 overs: Ben Calitz 104*, Ruhan Pretorius 91; Brandon Kruger 3-39, Michael Frost 2-65)
Munster Reds 138 (23.5 overs: Liam McCarthy 46, Jack Dickson 27; Cian Robertson 4-39, Tyron Koen 2-10, Matthew Foster 2-26) (Reduced pre-start to 43 overs. Further reduced to 34 overs, Reds target 248. Further reduction to 27 overs - target 220.)
Ben Calitz scored 104 not out (CricketEurope)
A record Northern Knights partnership of 156 in 17 overs between Ben Calitz and Ruhan Pretorius was the catalyst for a convincing 81-run (DLS) win over Munster Reds in a rain-affected Interprovincial Cup clash at Stormont. Sam Topping (28) and James McCollum (18) had made a steady start after a rain delay initially meant a 43-overs contest. However, wickets for Liam McCarthy, Mike Frost, and Brandon Kruger (3-39) had the hosts in a little trouble at 72 for 4 in the 20th over. That brought together Calitz – a former Canadian U19 international – and Ruhan Pretorius who totally transformed the game with their destructive hitting. 20 year-old left-hander Calitz became the fourth Knights player to make a hundred in the competition – joining Mark Adair, Neil Rock and Luke Georgeson – as he hit 7 fours and 7 sixes in his 85-ball unbeaten 104. Pretorius also cleared the ropes seven times as well as hitting eight fours, and looked destined also to reach three figures but perished on 91 from just 53 balls. A final total of 279 for 7 in 43 overs looked challenging and even more so when Matthew Foster struck twice early in the reply. Further showers meant a target of 220 in just 27 overs, with Munster never threatening to do so. There was some entertainment for the handful of brave souls who stuck it out to the end, with Liam McCarthy thumping 7 fours and 2 sixes in an 18-ball 46. It was too little, too late, though as Munster were 138 all out – four wickets for left-arm spinner Cian Robertson, plus two apiece for Foster and Tyron Koen. A word of praise for Munster’s Harry Dyer – who showed great sportsmanship in walking off after a fine edge behind. The Spirit of Cricket alive and well at Stormont. There’s action next week in the series with all sides playing – Munster Reds are at home – well, Oakhill – to North West Warriors, while the Northern Knights entertain Leinster Lightning, once again at Stormont. The T20 Trophy matches are on Tuesday afternoon, while the 50-overs cup games are on Wednesday.
North West Warriors v Leinster Lightning- no result
Bready, 22 May.
North West Warriors 227 (41.4 overs; Shane Getkate 81, Gavin Roulston 53, Marcello Piedt 27, Stephen Doheny 25; Gavin Hoey 4-45, Reuben Wilson 3-31, David Delany 2-46)
Leinster Lightning 49/1 (9 overs; Tim Tector 24) - abandoned due to rain
Action from the game at Bready (CricketEurope)
More frustration at Bready as the weather again won the day. Batting first the Warriors added 48 for the first wicket with Stephen Doheny making 25. His soft dismissal saw the hosts slump to 72 for 4, with Wilson (3-31) doing most of the damage as Andy McBrine and Scott Macbeth went cheaply. A 5th wicket stand of 77 between Gavin Roulston (53) and top-scorer Shane Getkate repaired the damage. Gavin Hoey (4-45) then sparked another collapse and it took a 9th wicket stand of 52 in 6 overs between Getkate and Marcello Piedt (27) to get the hosts to 227 - Getkate the last out for 81 off 79 balls (6 fours, 3 sixes). The chase saw an opening stand of 44 ended when Graham Hume deflected a Modgill drive onto the stumps with Tim Tector (24) out of the crease. Earlier 18 came off a Piedt over that included 3 no-balls, one of which had Modgill caught behind. The rains arrived with just 9 overs of the chase completed, meaning the points were shared as a no-result.
Leinster Lightning lost to Munster Reds by 4 wickets
Pembroke, 15 May.
Leinster Lightning 173 (41.2 overs; David Delany 44, Tim Tector 30, Gavin Hoey 25; Josh Manley 4-57, Liam McCarthy 2-40, Mike Frost 1-8, Jordan Neill 1-13, Brandon Kruger 1-15, Zubair Khan 1-26)
Munster Reds 176/6 (31 overs; Ollie Metcafe 49, Liam McCarthy 39*, Brandon Kruger 31; Gavin Hoey 3-49, Amish Sidhu 2-31)
Josh Manley (CricketEurope)
Josh Manley's four-wicket burst, aided by a fine all-round effort from Liam McCarthy and a hard-hit 49 by Ollie Metcalfe led Munster Reds to a 4-wickets win over Leinster Lightning at Sydney Parade. The two sides had unfamiliar looks to them with the absence of the international players giving the line-ups a Future Series feel. Lightning recovered from the loss of Swapnil Modgill in the first over to reach 50 for 1 - Tim Tector racing to 30. The wheels then came off as Manley and McCarthy ripped through the top-order as the hosts slumped to 81 for 7. Gavin Hoey (25) started a fightback, with David Delany (44) shepherding the tail as the last two wickets added 62 - Lightning 173 all out. Jordan Neill went in the second over, but Ollie Metcalfe hit 8 fours and a six in a fluent 49, adding 75 with Brandon Kruger (31). Gavin Hoey's three wickets gave Leinster an opening but the door was quickly slammed shut by a powerful unbeaten 39 from McCarthy (4 fours, 2 sixes) as Munster sealed a bonus point win in the 31st over.

Northern Knights beat North West Warriors by 118 runs
Stormont, 9 May.
Northern Knights 244 (48.4 overs; Ruhan Pretorius 81, James McCollum 33, Tyron Koen 32, Sam Topping 29; Harry Zimmerman 3-40, Andy McBrine 2-27, Scott Macbeth 2-35, Ryan Macbeth 2-48)
North West Warriors 126 (34 overs: Shane Getkate 66*; Matty Foster 3-12, Tyron Koen 3-27, Ruhan Pretorius 2-14)

The Warriors have won the toss and opted to bowl first. Ryan Macbeth gets the early breakthrough as he bowls Ben Calitz with one that nips back. Extras keeping board ticking along - 23 of the first 35, including 21 wides. At drinks the hosts reach 81 for 1, with McCollum (33*) and Topping (16*) having added an unbroken 66 for the second wicket. The second wicket falls without addition and the middle order, Carmichael, Hunter and Dyer disappears for a total fo five between them. 117/6 when Koen joins Pretorius and in a much needed recovery they add 70 before Koen is run out. Pretorius finished on 81 and that could well be a match defining knock. 50 extras in that innings. Criminal. Matty Foster with three wickets and Ruhan Pretorius two as the Warriors slump to 21 for 5. Never going to come back from that. Shane Getkate does get a half century but it's only about respectability you feel. Matthew Humphreys gets yesterday's hero Cameron Melly and three wickets for Tyron Koen has the visitors 120 for 9 - Getkate (60*) has half of those. All over as Trent McKeegan is run out by Harry Dyer having backed up too far and unable to get back as Getkate pushed back to the CSNI teenager. Next up in the interpros are the games between Leinster Lightning and Munster Reds next week. Ireland taking on Pakistan in three T20I's before then.
