Pre-Match Analysis:

Northern Knights made the best possible start with back-to-back wins against North West Warriors by 7 wickets and 99 runs respectively. However, failed to capitalize on the start they received losing their next two matches against Leinster Lightning and North West Warriors by narrow margins. Batting has come out well so far this season as they achieved the excess score of 200 once and even accounted for 191. They will be without their regulars Mark Adair, Paul Stirling, Neil Rock, and Ross Adair as all of them are part of the Ireland T20 World Cup squad means James McCollum has been shouldered the responsibilities to lead the side for the next few matches. Morgan Topping and Cian Roberston have been named in the squad as both recovered on time from injury.

Munster Reds had encountered more misery than content in the first half of the tournament, winning a solitary game from their four matches played. Their sole win was against North West Warriors by 20 runs in their third outing where the game was reduced to 5 overs aside. They need to be fearless in the batting department as their highest recorded score in the tournament is 159 having said even bowling needs a lot of improvements. Josh Manley continues to lead the side while Curtis Campher, Gareth Delany, and Ben White will be absent for the next few matches as they are away with the Ireland T20 World Cup squad. With five games in hand, they must win all of them to push for a chance of becoming champions.
