The 4th match of the Ireland Inter-Provincial Twenty20 Series is all set to be played between the North West Warriors and the Leinster Lightning at the Pembroke Cricket Club.
The match is scheduled to start at 1:30 PM Local Time (6:00 PM IST) (12:30 PM GMT) and can be seen live on Cricket Ireland YouTube Channel.
After winning their opening games in the tournament, the two in-form teams, the North West Warriors and the Leinster Lightning will be facing off against each other in the 4th match of the tournament on Thursday. The North West Warriors in their first match, were defeated the Northern Knights by a slim margin of 2 runs, with the Duck-Worth Lewis method deciding the result of the match. In their first match against the Munster Reds, the Leinster Lightning chased down the total they had on hand with 9 wickets still in their hand.
Both the teams have an equal amount of experience on their hands, having played one match each at the start of the tournament, so things are evened out a fair bit between the two teams. And, it will be really interesting to see which team win the match and climbs upwards in the points table.
Thursday is expected to bring along heavy rainfall and winds blowing at speeds as high as 14 kmph, with the temperature around 14 degree Celsius. The match is expected to get hindered due to rainfall.
A batting-friendly pitch, with pacers getting a lot of help among the bowlers, will be greeting the players when they step on to the field at the Pembroke Cricket Club.
