Knights complete comprehensive 8 wicket victory against Warriors

The Northern Knights duly wrapped up a comprehensive 8 wicket win over the North West Warriors this morning on the third day of their Newstalk Inter-Provincial Championship match at Stormont.

Resuming on their overnight score of 85 for 2, chasing a modest target of 154, the Knights took just 63 minutes to knock off the required 69 runs in just 15.3 overs with the minimum of fuss.
