"We are delighted to bring Tyrone into the club on a long-term deal.

"He is a passionate, hungry cricketer who we believe has the ability of being Irelandís best all-rounder.

"Tyrone is captain of Munster Reds this year, and brings high quality, an excellent skill-set in all three discipines and fantastic energy to our club.

"I, personally am excited about what his electric personality will bring on and off the field - helping us compete for trophies and role-mode high class behaviours for our younger players.

"Tyrone is an exceptional person, someone Iíve known for a long time - and tried to bring with me anywhere Iíve been. He is fiercely loyal, so it hasnít been easy - but as with starting a new chapter and captaining Munster, and re-establishing himself at international level, he is excited about taking on a leadership role at Phoenix - and we are just as excited to have him.Ē
