JAMES Shannon has received a two-match ban from Cricket Ireland and misses both Northern Knights games against North West Warriors this week.

Shannon, last year’s Knights captain who has moved to Phoenix, was given a Level 2 charge for his reaction to his dismissal in Knights’ Interprovincial Cup game against Leinster Lightning in La Manga last month.

The new face in the one-day squad for the game at Stormont tomorrow (10.45am) is Civil Service North opening bowler Matthew Foster, while in the three-day game at Comber, starting on Tuesday, Instonians professional Murray Commins will make his debut.

Knights one-day squad:

 G Wilson (capt), M Adair, J Cameron-Dow, M Ellison, M Foster, S Getkate, G McCarter, J McCollum, J Mulder, N Rock, H Tector, G Thompson. Three-day squad: As above except M Commins for Thompson.
