Im excited to be taking an opportunity to join Railway Union for the 2019 season," Aslam told CricketEurope.

"This will be my first club engagement and having heard great things about the Leinster league standard and new competition structure, I cannot wait to get involved.

Railway Union captain Ciaran Diviney welcomed the talented batsman to Park Avenue.

Im delighted to welcome Sami into our cricket family. I hope he will have a great time in Sandymount, score loads of runs, and help us win matches.

"We have some very promising young cricketers in the club who are buzzing at the prospect of playing and working with a player of his calibre. Bring it on!
