With the new interprovincial series set to get under way in two weeks, we take a look at the top bowlers since the revamped competition got under way in 2013.

Irish international Craig Young  (pictured right)tops the list with his tally of 131 wickets at 20.41. He has also the most five-wicket hauls (5) and can boast the best strike-rate (29.03).

Young has been the spearhead for the Warriors over the past eight seasons, and his consistent displays at this level have seen him a regular in the Ireland squads in that time.

Leinster Lightning skipper George Dockrell is second with 109 wickets at 20.37, just one ahead of his former interpro team-mate Tyrone Kane, who has 108 wickets at the best average of 19.65.

Warriors captain Andy McBrine has the most appearances in the interpros (81) and he is the fourth and final bowler to have passed the 100-wicket mark, with 102 wickets at 25.61.

Eddie Richardson (97), Shane Getkate (92), Peter Chase (86), Simi Singh (84), James Cameron-Dow (82) and Max Sorensen (81) complete the top ten.

Knights and CIYMS left-arm spinner Cameron-Dow is the only bowler to take ten wickets in a game against the Warriors at Eglinton, while also holding the best bowling in an innings (8-98) at Bready against the Warriors in 2015.

George Dockrell has taken six wickets or more twice, while others who have also experienced the 'joy of six' include Davy Scanlon, Max Sorensen, Tabish Khan, Tyrone Kane and Jacob Mulder.

The interprovincial season starts on Saturday May 1st when Leinster Lightning face North West Warriors at Sydney Parade.
