CIYMS have confirmed the signing of South African pace bowler Bamanye Xenxe for the 2024 season.

The 26 year-old Boland player has on first glance a fairly modest cricketing cv and averages, but has peformed well in T20 cricket and that appeals to the Belmont club, who are the current all-Ireland T20 champions.

"Delighted to announce that we have signed Bamanye Xenxe as overseas professional for the 2024 season," said the club on Twitter.

"A seam bowling all-rounder with strong T20 pedigree Bamanye will bolster the 1sts squad as well as playing a key role coaching within the Sixers Programme."
