Profile

Paul Stirling is one of the most promising young cricketers in Ireland. He is a top-order right-handed batsman who has already played for the senior team in both 50-over and 20-over cricket. Stirling was part of Ireland's team that performed well at the World Twenty20 in England in 2009 and signed three-year deal with Middlesex in December 2009, where he joined fellow Irish-born batsman Eoin Morgan. Unlike Morgan, Stirling is firmly committed to playing for Ireland. Although he admires Ricky Ponting, his free-scoring approach and generous build invokes comparison to Jesse Ryder. In his fourth ODI for Ireland he made a 92-ball 84 against Kenya and followed up with a 26-ball 30 against England two games later. In 2010 he made a 134-ball 177 for Ireland against Canada in which remains the highest ODI score made by an Irishman. He is yet to convert his limited-overs potential into consistent first-class scores but has plenty of time on his side to develop.
