More bad weather at Bready meant just 42.4 overs were possible on the third and final day of the Championship game between NW Warriors and Leinster Lightning.

In the little play that was possible, Andy Balbirnie made a half century as Lightning achieved a batting point, ending on 154 for 5.

Simi Singh (34*), George Dockrell (26*) and Cormac McLoughlin-Gavin (23) also chipped in on a track and overhead conditions that always favoured the bowlers.

Craig Young (3-45) added a bit of excitement into an otherwise gloomy and predictable outcome as he added to last night's dismissal of Jack Tector by adding the scalps of Kevin O'Brien and Lorcan Tucker - both without scoring.

Boyd Rankin and Andy McBrine were the other wicket takers.

Watching Head Coach Graham Ford will be concerned at the lack of red-ball cricket for his charges ahead of the Lord's Test after last months game at Comber was also badly affected by the weather and may opt to try and garner some extra game time for the squad.

The focus now switches to T20, with the Festival weekend at Pembroke getting under way on Saturday.
