Murray Commins is on his way back to the NCU Premier League after signing for CIYMS.
The 23-year-old represented Instonians as their overseas professional during the 2019 season and broke into the Northern Knights side, playing five times, including a First Class outing against Leinster Lightning.
Commins actually made his presence known in the local game back in the summer of 2018 when he played one game for the Shaws Bridge outfit, where he scored 103 in an Irish Senior Cup defeat to Phoenix.
He wasn’t able to play in the NCU during the shortened 2020 season but now that he has obtained the appropriate visa, Commins will be deemed a local player for the upcoming campaign and will be working locally.
CIYMS have a seriously talented player on their hands with the left-handed batsman scoring 844 runs at an average of 44.42 in 2019, which put him seventh on the batting charts.
He will now take a spot in the CI top-order that already contains John Matchett, Chris Dougherty, Mark Adair and Jason van der Merwe.
Commins is the first recruitment for the reigning league champions who will be without Jacob Mulder next season.
