The Three Day Inter-pro game between Leinster Lightning and Northern Knights ended in a draw at Pembroke.

The final day's play was shortened due to rain with Lightning on 448-7 in reply to the Knights' 440-9 declared.

After the high scoring on the first day a draw was very probable but it was Lightning who gained the extra points by scoring more runs in their innings.

North-West Warriors had already won the Three Day title so there was nothing at stake in Dublin.

The Knights were runners-up to Lightning in the Twenty/20 competition but came last in the Three day and One Day Inter-pros.

North-West can add the One Day title in a 'winner takes all' game against Lightning at Rathmines on Sunday.
