The MTB Northern Knights will be hoping it's a case of third time lucky as they name their squad for the 50-overs interprovincial cup game against holders Leinster Lightning at Comber.

The Knights opening two games against NW Warriors were both cancelled without a ball being bowled.

There's one change to the squad from Tuesday's match, with North Down leg spinner Carl Robinson named in the 13 instead of CJ van der Walt, which could increase to 14 depending on whether Jacob Mulder is added.

It's been a frustrating season for the interprovincial competition which has seen a delayed start, and a number of postponements due to the weather and a Covid-19 scare.

Play at Comber is due to get under way at 10:15am on Thursday.
