Instonians all-rounder James Hunter could make his Inter-Provincial debut on Tuesday after being named in the MTB Northern Knights 13-man squad for their trip to Munster Reds.

The 17-year-old impressed in the intra-squad games ahead of the Inter-Pro season, scoring a half-century in the first match and also helped Instonians reach the Robinson Services Cup semi-finals at the weekend, where they lost out to eventual champions North Down.

Bowling left-arm pace and batting in the middle order, Hunter will bring variation to the Knights squad as they take on the Reds at The Mardyke (1:30pm).
