Leinster Lightning and Munster Reds will lock horns on Thursday in the Ireland Inter-Provincial Twenty20 Series. The Leinster Lightning have got a star-studded team as almost all have played a handful number of matches at the International stage. They will be led by the left-arm spinner George Dockrell while Jack Tector leads an inexperienced Munster Reds team. The Munster team is easily the weakest team among this 4-team tournament where as many as 12 matches are to be played until September 8th.
Showers and light rain are expected at the Sydney Parade but we might get to see a shortened match.
Three matches during the 2019 T20I tournament hosted by Sydney Parade ended without any interruptions from the rain. All three matches were unique as there was a successful chase of 180+, a team getting bowled out for only 78 and a team defending a total around 160.
Average first innings score: 142 (Unaffected T20s in 2019)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 2, Lost – 1

The crucial point for fantasy cricket in this match relies on the batting positions of Kevin O’Brien and Curtis Campher. While Kevin hasn’t bowled much recently, it is his consistency with the bat as an opener makes him a multiplier candidate. Campher, however, bowls his full quota but is not a reliable batsman at the top as Kevin.
Leinster Lightning are expected to defeat Munster Reds by a huge margin on Thursday afternoon.
