Leinster Lightning have unveiled their squad as they start their defence of their Inter-Provincial T20 crown against Munster Reds on Friday at Sydney Parade.

George Dockrell skippers the team, and he is joined by his team mates from Rathmines Gareth Delaney and Joe Carroll.

There are also three from Pembroke who will be playing on home soil - the Irish international trio of Andrew Balbirnie, Josh Little and keeper Lorcan Tucker.
