The 6th match of the Cricket Ireland Inter-Provincial Limited Over Cup 2020 will be played between Leinster Lightning and the North-West Warriors at The Village, Dublin.

This game is scheduled to start at 10:15 AM Local time (02:45 PM IST) (09:15 AM UTC).

Preview:

We have officially reached the last match of the Ireland Inter-Provincial Limited Over Cup 2020. There were as many as two abandoned games and one can say that it might’ve hampered either of Northern Knights or North-West Warriors’ chances of lifting the title. Having said that, one mustn’t take anything away from Leinster Lightning. Post the match on Monday, they will be crowned as the champions and rightly so. They have played a fascinating brand of cricket and dominated the proceedings from the word go.

North-West Warriors, however, are as dangerous a side as any. This is largely because they will look to end their campaign on a high and deny Leinster Lightning the satisfaction of a clean sweep. Thus, this contest can very well be fuelled with emotions and drama. We have got an exciting match coming up for us.
