Ireland opener Paul Stirling is all set to feature in the men's The Hundred with Southern Brave, replacing Devon Conway. It is the second stint in England for Stirling, who had featured in the Vitality Blast for Middlesex in five matches.
"I’ve watched the first few rounds of The Hundred with great interest and am delighted to have been given this chance to be involved. The Southern Brave team has been outstanding so far under James Vince, and I hope I can contribute to the ongoing success of the team in this inaugural season of the competition," Stirling said in an official release by Cricket Ireland.
Conway, who has played for Somerset in the County Championship, was hit on the gloves during Brave's previous match against London Spirit and didn't return to field in the second innings. So far, the Kiwi left-hander has scored 97 runs in four matches for Brave at a strike rate of 112.79.
Another Somerset player, South Africa's Marchant de Lange is set to return to the County side from Trent Rockets after Pakistani pacer Wahab Riaz availability for the tournament was confirmed.
