Profile

A burly right-arm fast-medium bowler, Derek Stirling started his first-class career brightly. Aged just 19, he took 6 for 75 against Northern Districts in January 1982, figures he never bettered. He became one of the many New Zealanders under shadow of Richard Hadlee for the rest of the decade.
