Mark Adair is available to play for the Northern Knights but will not bowl in the Inter-provincial Cup match against North West Warriors at Bready.

The Ireland international missed the All-Ireland T20 semi-final which his CIYMS side lost to Donemana on Saturday with a side strain, but Knights skipper Gary Wilson will welcome him back for the first 50-over game of the season in Ireland after last week's opener between the teams at Shaw's Bridge was controversially abandoned 22 hours before the start.

The Knights have called in Instonians' young left-arm all-rounder James Hunter for Jacob Mulder, who is sick.

Heavy rain was forecast for the north west last night and the Warriors were fearing another wash-out. They have completed only three of their seven scheduled matches this season and are still looking for their first win.

Skipper Andy McBrine said: "We played one full game out of six in the T20 Trophy so we have yet to get going but in the games we have played there have been some good signs.

"Some of us got game time on Saturday and we had a couple of close games against the Knights last season (including a DLS victory at Stormont by three runs) but Knights are a strong outfit and it will be another good test."

Coleraine's Varun Chopra comes in for the unavailable Ryan Hunter.
