Paul Stirling is a forceful opening batsman known for his aggressive style of play. Remarkably, he had already notched up five one-day international centuries by the time he reached his 23rd birthday. His ODI debut came in 2008 against New Zealand, and he has continued to make a significant impact on the world cricket stage throughout his 47 ODI appearances.
In 2010, Stirling made headlines by scoring a splendid 177 runs from just 134 balls in a match against Canada. He followed this exceptional performance with another century during the 2011 Cricket World Cup, this time against Netherlands. Notably, two of his most memorable innings were against Pakistan, where he scored 109 runs from 107 balls in May 2011 and repeated his excellence two years later with 103 runs from 107 balls.
Apart from his batting prowess, Stirling is also a valuable off-spin bowler and has been a consistent performer for Middlesex in county cricket.
