Paul Stirling, the right-handed opening batter for Islamabad United, will miss the remaining matches of Pakistan Super League 7 because he will be joining the Irish national side ahead of the Men’s T20 World Cup Global Qualifier in Oman.
According to reports, Islamabad United, the two-time PSL champions, have already signed England all-rounder Liam Dawson to replace Paul Stirling. Dawson will be eligible for the second leg of the PSL, which begins on February 10 in Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium.
Paul Stirling expressed his admiration for Pakistan and best wishes to Islamabad United on Twitter. “It was once again a lot of fun in Pakistan. @IsbUnited has taken excellent care of me. “Wishing you luck for the rest of the competition,” he wrote on Twitter.
Paul Stirling and Alex Hales provided solid top-flight support for Islamabad United. The opener is now ranked sixth on the list of PSL 7’s greatest run scorers, with 187 runs scored in five innings at an average of 37.
During the PSL 7 Karachi leg, Stirling achieved two fifties and batted with a strike rate of 181.55. Furthermore, in Paul’s absence, the Event Technical Committee has already approved Dawson to replace him, and he will now represent Islamabad United.
Islamabad United defeated the Babar Azam-led Karachi Kings by 42 runs in their final encounter of the Karachi leg yesterday and will meet Quetta Gladiators at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on February 12th. Islamabad United is now second in the PSL points table, having won three of their five matches.
