Inter-Pro: Northern Knights complete win over North West Warriors

Former Zimbabwean Test player Craig Ervine helped steer the Knights to victory at Stormont

The Northern Knights wrapped up an eight-wicket victory over the North West Warriors early on the final day of the Inter-Pro game at Stormont.

Resuming on their overnight score of 85 for 2, chasing a modest target of 154, the Knights took just 63 minutes to score the required 69 runs.

Former Zimbabwean Test player Craig Ervine finished unbeaten on 72 with Andrew White not out on 31.

The bowlers had dominated the opening two days of action at Stormont.
