NCU v Leinster U11 Interprovincial Tournament
NCU U11 - 140/5 (25 overs; Ryan Hunter 94*, Srihan Karpe 2-19)
LCU U11 - 74/10 (17.3 overs; Donncha Tucker 20*, Shane Butterly 20, Harry Dyer 4-12, Adam Leckey 2-3, Angus Carson 2-26)
A 66 run win by the NCU means that victory tomorrow against the North West will see them crowned U11 Interprovincial champions in successive seasons. Matches can be reduced and there is provision for a bowl out if play is impossible. Let's hope it doesn't come down to that. Congratulations to all today for ensuring that cricket was played and creating a 'first' with an Indoor game.
