Jeremy Lawlor's 90 was the highlight of the second South versus North match played at Malahide.

The weather unfortunately had the final say as the game rearranged from yesterday was abandoned at the half-way stage.

Lawlor is keen to make the most of his Irish roots and having been released by Glamorgan joined Phoenix in an attempt to forge a career with Leinster Lightning and Ireland.

(Jeremy Lawlor)

He survived an early chance to go and hit 5 sixes and 3 fours in his 90 from 63 balls, sharing stands of 54 and 57 with Terenure's Seamus Lynch (28) and Rush's Stephen Doheny (32).

Jack Tector (19) and Fiachra Tucker (12) also made double figures as the South made 188 for 6.

Instonians' left-armer James Hunter claimed four wickets bowling at the death, while Jacob Mulder (1-23) was the most economical.

A deluge of biblical proportions left the officials with no alternative to call off the game, the North having to head home without getting the chance to bat, meaning the South won the series 1-0.
