The 2020 season may not have ended yet but Waringstown have already sorted their overseas professional for next year with Andre Malan set to join the club.
Malan, who spent two years with CSNI, was due to play for The Villagers this season but that wasn’t possible due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The South African has been the form player in the NCU over the past few years, scoring 1238 runs and picking up 41 wickets in 23 matches for the Belfast club in 2019.
He scored five centuries, which was joint-highest with Jacques Snyman, and also registered six half-centuries.
If everything goes to plan over the winter, Malan will finally get to make his Waringstown debut next season.
“I am looking forward to joining everyone at Waringstown in 2021 and can not wait to get involved with the whole club and community,” he said.
“From my two years in the NCU I have come to respect Waringstown as rivals and really enjoyed the way they go about playing their cricket.
“To be apart of that collective effort towards winning in a ruthless yet respectful manner is something I look forward to in 2021.”
