A decade into international cricket, Stirling has grown from a chubby 18-year old debutante to becoming the linchpin of Ireland's batting order. As part of the Associate nations, Stirling racked up runs for fun against similar opposition, but he also showed that he had the game against the big boys. The 2011 World Cup was a disappointment though - as he managed only one score of significance - 101 coming against Netherlands in Kolkata. He shrugged off the disappointment though and registered his first hundred against a visiting Test nation, against Pakistan, in May 2011. Since then, he has grown in stature and has been regarded as one of the finest batsman ever produced by Ireland.
Numbers tell the story for Stirling, in 97 ODIs, he has 50+ scores in 23 innings - getting him a ratio that will stand proud amongst the best opening batsmen of this era. He however has a tendency of being a nervous starter - nine ducks in 97 games is perhaps one glaring stat which needs to be worked on. With his country getting recognized as a regular Test playing nation, the onus will be on the likes of Stirling to ensure that the next generation of Ireland cricketers have a stable platform.
