There is just one change to the Leinster Lightning squad for their Championship game against the NW Warriors at Bready next week.

Rush top order batsman Stephen Doheny picked up a muscle strain while on Ireland Wolves duty and his place is taken by The Hills’ opener Cormac McLoughlin-Gavin.

“We’ve a chance to go to Bready and get our Championship season up and running with a win," said Lightning skipper George Dockrell.

"We’ve shown decent form in the IP50 games thus far and it’s important for us as a squad to continue that.

“If we can do that in the early part of the week, that will build momentum and carry us into what is undoubtedly a big weekend of T20. We must focus on this Championship match first however.”

Dockrell is one of eight senior internationals in the squad, while there are three Wolves players also.

Action at Bready gets under way at 11am.
