Leinster beat Munster by four wickets in a hard-fought Under 15 interprovincial match at The Mardyke.

Chasing 119, three wickets for Eshan O'Sullivan (3-23) had Leinster in some trouble, but Hassan Shahid's 44 and an unbeaten 33 from Donncha Tucker got then over the line in the 30th over.

Earlier, Munster's total of 118 for 8 was thanks primarily to 31 not out from Cian O'Sullivan, with Eshan chipping in with 15.

There were two wickets apiece for Sebastian Dijkstra (2-7),  and Niall Cox (2-15).

The sides are due to meet again this week.
