Having beaten the Knights last Thursday, the Leinster Lightning today announce the 12-man squad to face the North West Warriors in their next match of the Test Triangle Interprovincial 50-over Cup at Bready on Tuesday.
There is just one change to that squad that squad as Tyrone Kane, who didn’t bowl last week due to a muscle strain, is rested, and will be replaced in the matchday squad by YMCA’s Tim Tector.
YMCA won the All-Ireland T20 competition over the weekend and will now have five players in the squad for the long trip to the North West.
“It’s unfortunate for TK (Tyrone Kane) that he has a slight niggle and we’ll rest him tomorrow, but hopefully he will be fit again for the Malahide games on Saturday and Monday,” said Head Coach Nigel Jones.
“It does give us an opportunity to bring Tim (Tector) into the squad. He is an exciting young player, who has shown great promise over the last 12 to 18 months coming through the youth pathway programme.
“He played very well in our Intra-Squad match at Malahide ten days ago and we’re really pleased to be able to give him the opportunity to come into the matchday squad for tomorrow.
“Looking ahead to the game itself, we’re keen to push on from our performance at Comber which had really pleasing aspects with both bat and ball. There are still things to work on of course, whether it is through the middle of our innings or some of our fielding, but we were very pleased with the outcome last Thursday.
“The boys are fit and firing, ready to go and looking to take that momentum forward into our game at Bready tomorrow,” Jones concluded.
The Lightning 50-over Cup campaign continues away to the North West Warriors at 10.15am on Tuesday September 22nd. The squad for that match is below.
