Leinster Lightning will take on North West Warriors in the fifth match of the Ireland Inter-Provincial T20 Cup at Pembroke Cricket Club in Dublin on Sunday.
The Leinster Lightning have had mixed results so far with a victory in their first game over Munster Reds and a defeat in their second game against the Northern Knights. The Lightning, led by George Dockrell, will look to bounce back quickly before things get out of hand.
Meanwhile, the North West Warriors started the tournament with a victory over the Northern Knights, but went on to lose against Munster Reds in their second contest. Andy McBrine’s side will look to make amends in this encounter against favorites Leinster.

The surface has provided a lot of swing and bounce for the quicks, meaning the batsman will have to hold their ground before going for the big shots. With the pitch not expected to slow down, either side would look to bat first.
