A dependable middle-order batsman, Commins was consistent and reliable without being flashy or pretty with the bat. He was good enough to make the South African Test side as a No. 3 in 1993-94, and did well until he was sidelined by a groin injury, one which was aggrevated when he set off for a single while batting with a runner and was run-out as he dived to make his ground. His age went against him when he returned to fitness, although he continued to score freely for Western Province either side of a brief stint at Boland.
