Emerging Warriors beaten by Ireland Academy

The Emerging Warriors were unable to build on Tuesday’s T20 win over Lightning Bolts when they narrowly lost out to an Ireland Academy side by 5 wickets at Stormont this afternoon.

Cameron Melly top scored for the North West side as he made 56 (6 fours, one six) in a total of 155-7 from their allotted overs.

Opener Jack Macbeth batted well for his 33 with Ryan Clarke chipping in with 27 while Abid Taniwal (3-13) and Jeremy Martins (2-23) fared best with the ball for the Academy side.

A rain delay then saw the target amended to 145 from 18 overs, and the reply was dominated by Daniel Murray who played a fantastic innings to make an unbeaten 73 (5 fours, four sixes). Murray timed his knock perfectly to see his side home with just three balls to spare as Robbie Millar (2-26) claimed the bowling honours.

The Emerging Warriors now have two games on Thursday, against Munster in the morning and the Knights in the afternoon, hoping for a top-two finish in the table that would qualify them for Friday’s final.
