William Porterfield has been named in a 12-man Warriors squad for their T20 interpro clash with Northern Knights in Belfast on Friday.

The Ireland skipper is keen to play in all Warriors games this season and his presence adds quality and experience to a well balanced squad.

He's one of six internationals in the NW ranks, alongside Craig Young, David Rankin, Andy Britton, skipper Andy McBrine and the in-form Stuart Thompson.

Ricky-Lee Dougherty will keep in Niall O'Brien's absence, while Boyd Rankin is back at Warwickshire.

Ireland U19 internationals Aaron Gillespie and Graham Kennedy are included, while spinners Ross Allen, Steve Lazars and pace bowler David Scanlon completes the line-up.

Action at Stormont gets under way at 5pm.
