Warriors name squad for Lightning double-header

Selectors have named a 13-man squad for this week’s upcoming games against Leinster Lightning at Bready as the North West Warriors look to get this year’s Interprovincial campaign back on track.

The sides will meet in a T20 on Tuesday (3.30 pm) before squaring up again in a 50-over game at the same venue (10.45 am) as Boyd Rankin’s charges try to derail the visitors’ impressive start. Lightning are clear leaders in the T20 format and remain unbeaten so far with the three other sides all having lost at least twice already.

The Warriors have one win from their four outings so far- that nail-biting verdict over the Northern Knights at Stormont, and they will he hoping for more of the same on Tuesday.

The home side’s squad is along the same lines, although there are two fresh faces as Graham Hume becomes available for this week and Brigade’s overseas man Marcello Piedt could be set to make his debut.

Andy McBrine again leads the Warriors in both formats with Stephen Doheny taking the gloves.

Wednesday’s 50-over contest is just the second of the season for Boyd Rankin’s charges who will be looking to open their account following defeat to the Knights first up.
