So this was all about today with Myself Chinmay and my co-commentators Nikhil and Ayan and Score Analyst Chandan. Good Night and will see you in another Ireland Provincial ODI.
So that's the final result of the match, North West Warriors won by a huge margin of 145 runs. After scoring just 235 runs, Warriors bowlers packed the Munster Reds by a huge margin of 145 runs.
Talking about the batting of the Warriors, McBrine played a captain's innings scoring 100 runs, and carried the team almost till the end, along with Graham Kennedy built a nice partnership in the latter part of the innings to take their team to a respectable score of 235 runs. No other batsman was able to score runs and Reds bowlers were quite good with their line and lengths to stop their opposition to an easily achievable total.
But Warrior bowlers had some other plans all of their bowlers took wickets with Hume, MacBerth, Olphert, and McBrine each taking 2 wickets each, and Kennedy and Wilson with one wicket to their name. This superb and extraordinary bowling effect of Warriors helped them to stop Reds batsman just at 90 and they were not even able to play complete overs as they were bundled out at 90 only. Only 4 of Munster Reds' batsmen were able to reach out to double-digit and due to careless shots, all of them lost their wicket in spite of getting a bit of start.

32.3 J Wilson to L McCarthy
W That's in the air and is taken by the bowler. Short of a length into the pitch, McCarthy goes for the pull and gets a top edge as the ball spoons up in the air as the ball lobs up and the bowler comes underneath it and takes the catch comfortably. The Reds have been bowled out for 90 in 32.3 overs. A huge win for the Warriors by 145 runs here.
