The opening interpro clash of the season has been rescheduled following heavy rain in La Manga.

Defending champions Leinster Lightning were due to face the North West Warriors on Monday in a 50-over contest, but following a ground inspection the decision has been taken to move the game to Tuesday.

The Warriors will then play Northern Knights on Wednesday, with the final match on Thursday between Lightning and the Knights.

Spare a thought for Irish internationals William Porterfield, Gary Wilson and Andy Balbirnie who travelled to Spain on Thursday, but have been unable to get any net practice due to the relentless rain.

It is of course ironic that while Spain undergoes inclement weather, much of Ireland is basking in sunshine this Easter weekend.
