Munster Cricket Season 2022 - Weeks 9 & 10

Munster Cricket Season 2022 - Weeks 9 & 10

 

Part 1 of the packed 2022 season concluded with the end of the Junior & Minor T20s and a pause in Representative cricket. This is a good time to look forward to the second half of the season & preview what is coming.

 

This weekend sees the start of the Munster Premier T20 League. The reward for the league champions is a semi-final place against the Cricket Leinster champions with the chance of an AIT20 final at the Richard Beamish Cricket Ground, Cork.

 

This Friday sees the U15 & 17 squads start their training sessions to get ready for a packed Interpros 2022 program of T20s & 50-over games in Belfast, Dublin & Cork.

 

Tuesday the 28th will see the Munster Heat competing in the Future Series, as they take on the Ireland U17s in Cork & then a trip on Thursday to North Kildare to play the Emerging Knights.

 

Friday and we have the return of the Senior Inter-Provincial IP50 Championship where the table-topping Munster Reds travel to Eglinton, Derry to take on the Warriors. Victory would secure a historic IP50 Title.

 

So to the review of the last fortnight of Munster Clubs action and the deciding of T20 silverware.
