The Northern Knights teams to play North West Warriors in the T20 match on Friday 5th August at Strabane and the IP50 over match on 7th August at Waringstown have been selected.

The Northern Knights have rested a number of players for their dead rubber encounters, with debuts for the Derriaghy pair of Craig Lewis and Curtis Moorhead, as well as Lisburn's Mark Berry, and Michael Gilmour of Carrick.

 Knights and Ireland selector Andrew White said, 'The volume of cricket over the coming ten days is very intense and culminates in a vital 3 day game against the Warriors at Comber. With that in mind the selectors have taken the decision to rest some of our key players especially in the bowling department.

"This has opened up a number of opportunities for other players to showcase their talent on the Interprovincial stage. The performances of the new additions have been monitored for some time and we feel that they deserve the opportunity to make their mark ahead of the winter programme and 2017.

"It is important for us to try and broaden the pool of players capable of playing at Interprovincial level and the commitment required of the players moving forward will be key to this.'

Players not available for the T20 match include James McCollum, Gary Kidd, Greg Thompson, James Shannon and Alastair Shields. No club professional players were considered.

Players not available for the 50 over match included Graeme McCarter, James McCollum and Gary Kidd.

Not selected with the 3 day match in mind were Phil Eaglestone and Nathan Smith. Again no club professional players were considered.
