The Lightning kick off the defence of their three trophies with a tough 50 over assignment against a strong Knights side in Belfast this Bank Holiday Monday.

Following on from last weekend’s win against the Danes, this is new skipper John Anderson's first competitive game in charge and he has an almost full strength squad to choose from with only Lorcan Tucker unavailable due to exam commitments.

The first ball will be bowled in Stormont at 10.45am and admission is free.


John Anderson (Capt-Merrion); Dom Joyce & Tyrone Kane (both Merrion); Fintan McAllister (Malahide); Andrew Poynter (Clontarf); Eddie Richardson (North County); Simmi Singh; Jack Tector & Yacoob Ali (all YMCA); Max Sorensen (The Hills); Kevin O’Brien (Railway Union) George Dockrell (Trinity/Leinster)
