Mulder's chance to shine for Knights

By Ian Callender

Jacob Mulder, the young North Down leg spinner, makes his debut in the final inter-provincial Championship match of the season against Leinster Lightning at Rathmines today as the Northern Knights have been forced to ring the changes.

Almost a complete team has been listed as unavailable for the three-day game, including captain Andrew White, so Lee Nelson, double-winning skipper of Waringstown this season, takes over once again.

The Leinster side includes Ireland international George Dockrell, who missed the chance to make his inter-pro debut when the one-day game against the North West Warriors was called off two weeks ago and his duel with CIYMS' James Cameron-Dow will interest the Ireland selectors before they pick the team for next month's Intercontinental Cup game against Namibia in Windhoek.

John Anderson, who damaged a hand in the Irish Cup final on Saturday, as expected has had to pull out and he is replaced by likely 12th man Lorcan Tucker.

A Lightning victory will confirm them as champions again and they would be the first team to complete a clean sweep of titles in all three formats, although the Knights, too, can win the title with a win or even a draw.

Leinster Lightning: J Mooney (capt), Y Ali, J Carroll, G Dockrell, T Kane, F McAllister, A Poynter, E Richardson, S Singh, M Sorensen, J Tector, L Tucker

Northern Knights: L Nelson (capt), S Bunting, J Cameron-Dow, C Dougherty, P Eakin, S Getkate, J McClurkin, J McCollum, R McKinlay, J Mulder, J Shannon, A Shields.
