Josh Manley's four-wicket burst, aided by a fine all-round effort from Liam McCarthy and a hard-hit 49 by Ollie Metcalfe led Munster Reds to a 4-wickets win over Leinster Lightning at Sydney Parade.

The two sides had unfamiliar looks to them with the absence of the international players giving the line-ups a Future Series feel.

Lightning recovered from the loss of Swapnil Modgill in the first over to reach 50 for 1 - Tim Tector racing to 30. The wheels then came off as Manley and McCarthy ripped through the top-order as the hosts slumped to 81 for 7.

Gavin Hoey (25) started a fightback, with David Delany (44) shepherding the tail as the last two wickets added 62 - Lightning 173 all out.

Jordan Neill went in the second over, but Ollie Metcalfe hit 8 fours and a six in a fluent 49, adding 75 with Brandon Kruger (31).

Gavin Hoey's three wickets gave Leinster an opening but the door was quickly slammed shut by a powerful unbeaten 39 from McCarthy (4 fours, 2 sixes) as Munster sealed a bonus point win in the 31st over.
