Meanwhile, it was another blank day at Bready in the final inter-provincial championship clash of the season between North West Warriors and Northern Knights.

More overnight rain left the outfield saturated and while the square was playable there was no chance of the game getting under way and now, it must be doubtful if a ball will be bowled in the match.

The players have probably lost the will in a six-match series where there has not been a single positive result – and with Northern Knights, the best placed to catch leaders Leinster Lightning, now needing to bowl out Warriors today and then score 150 runs to pick up the five bonus points to join them at the top of the table, even with a full day’s play that would appear unlikely.



No play was possible on Thursday meaning Leinster Lightning are the 2019 Interprovincial Championship winners.
