Leinster Lightning flexed their muscles with a record-breaking display against the North West Warriors in their 50 overs interpro cup game at The Hills.

Craig Young (4-61) had struck two early blows and when Graham Hume had Harry Tector caught behind for 0, the hosts were in trouble at 46 for 3.

From that juncture though it was all one-way traffic as debutant Chris De Freitas scored a half century as he and Lorcan Tucker added 123 in 18 overs.

Tucker and Dockrell then really stepped on the gas as they clubbed 154 in 14 overs for the 5th wicket.

Tucker hit 15 fours and 6 sixes in his 133 from 93 balls - the second best individual score in the competition, behind PJ Moor - while Dockrell cleared the ropes 8 times in his 88 from 49 balls.

Any hopes of respite for the beleaguered NW attack with their dismissals were quickly dispelled as Sam Harbinson (43* from 16 balls) and Fionn Hand (40* off 15 balls) hit four sixes apiece as they plundered 87 off the last 5 overs to finish on a competition record 425 for 7.

Faced with such a daunting total Liam Doherty (30) and Stephen Doheny (26) shared an opening stand of 56, but once it was broken, they were bowled out for 181 with Simi Singh taking 4 for 39, and two wickets apiece for Gavin Hoey and Fionn Hand.

Cian Robertson missed the game having injured his shoulder at the weekend.

Much then to ponder for the Warriors and Head Coach Boyd Rankin on a day when Young apart - they were cruelly exposed by a motivated Lightning side.
