Munster Reds' playing strength and depth has been significantly improved by the confirmation that Zimbabwean international PJ Moor will be in their ranks for the 2021 campaign.

The 30 year-old is coming to Ireland to play in the Leinster senior league, with his Dublin club expected to confirm the signing later this week.

Moor, who holds an Irish passport, previously played club cricket with YMCA and CIYMS.

He has played 78 times for Zimbabwe across all formats, although hasn't appeared at international level since 2019.

"The addition of someone of PJ's quality, versatility and experience to our squad is a very welcome one," said Munster Reds Head Coach Ted Williamson.

"His knowledge and ability across both white ball formats along with his leadership skills are only going to add to the Reds and our ability to win matches in both competitions this year."

It's a real boost for Williamson, who last week was confirmed in a new full-time role as both Head Coach and Pathway Manager.

"I'm delighted to take on an expanded role which will help us in Munster to really resource and support pathway throughout.," the former Irish international told CricketEurope.

"It will mean that we shape our program around the areas that we feel will benefit us most, have coaches with the best fit in certain environments.

"We will also have a lot more contact time for our Heat squad, which is one of our main priorities, in the next year or two."
