Thursday’s Test Triangle Inter-Provincial Cup match between the Lightning and the North West Warriors was abandoned without a ball being bowled in Balrothery, as the home side picked up their sixth 50-over Cup title in a row.
Needing only to avoid a bonus point defeat to claim another piece of silverware, the two points gained for a no result, was more than enough for captain George Dockrell to be confirmed as the winning skipper of this competition.
After the Northern Knights won the T20 Trophy at a rained out Bready last weekend, the 3-day Championship will be decided at the same ground in the North West next week.
The Lightning, who are finished their season, lead the table by ten points from the Knights and thirteen from the North West Warriors, who meet at Bready.
All three sides can still win the trophy, however given the disrupted nature of the 2019 Inter-Provincial season, it’s likely the weather will have the biggest say in the destination of the title.
All will be revealed from Tuesday August 27th to Thursday August 29th in Bready.
