Ruan Cronje will be back at Clontarf for the 2023 season.

The South African proved a success in his debut season at Castle Avenue, where he claimed an impressive 46 wickets with his off-spin.

In addition he scored four half-centuries as he made 535 runs at 24.32.

There appears though to be some doubt if Zimbabwean international PJ Moor will be returning for the forthcoming season.

Moor became Irish qualifed last October but hasn't been included in Ireland's squad for the tour of his home country this month.

That, despite regular keeper Lorcan Tucker missing part of the tour due to particpation in the inaugural ILT20 in the UAE, as well as Paul Stirling and Josh Little - who is playing in the SA20.

Heinrich Malan and the selectors have opted to go with the uncapped Stephen Doheny and his former Rush colleague Neil Rock with the gloves.

The 31 year-old has been in fine form playing domestic cricket this year in Zimbabwe, scoring three half centuries in his last four games for Mountaineers.

His return to Dublin in 2023 may hinge on whether he is successful in his quest to gain a contract with Ireland.

The governing body are expected to announce new contract details sometime in March, although there are already 12 players on two-year deals which won't expire until 2024 - Mark Adair, Andrew Balbirnie, Curtis Campher, Gareth Delany, Josh Little, Andy McBrine, Neil Rock, Simi Singh, Paul Stirling, Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker, Craig Young.

Will they find space for Moor who has played 49 ODIs, 21 T20Is and eight Tests for Zimbabwe? Time will tell...
