Leinster Lightning will be missing both Kevin O'Brien and Andrew Balbirnie for their crucial T20 clash with Munster Reds at The Mardyke.

They have been held back by Cricket Ireland as a precaution in advance of the upcoming I-Cup match against the Netherlands.

In their place comes in Merrion’s Tom Stanton and a first call-up this year for Rush opener Stephen Doheny.

A win for Lightning would clinch the T20 trophy after they missed the chance to win it on home soil when they were beaten by the Warriors.
