The Hundred 2021 – Paul Stirling replaces injured Devon Conway at Southern Brave



Marchant de Lange returns to Somerset as Wahab Riaz joins Trent Rockets

Irish hitter Paul Stirling will replace New Zealander Devon Conway at Southern Brave, and the availability of Pakistani fast Wahab Riaz for the Trent Rockets means their South African rookie Marchant de Lange will leave the Hundred Men after four matches and will return to Somerset for their Royal London One-Day Cup campaign.
Conway, also a Somerset man and one of the most prominent newcomers on the international scene, had a steady run with Brave in the Hundred, taking starts every time. He had scores of 18, 23, 34 and 22 for a total of 97 points, with a strike rate of 112.79. But in that last match, against London Spirit at Lord’s, Conway received a punch from Blake Cullen in the fingers of his left hand very early in his sleeves, and as he was finishing his sleeves he didn’t come out on field.

Veteran drummer Stirling was not at his best when he showed up for Ireland when visiting South Africa in July for an ODI and T20I set, but he brings with it him extensive experience. Not to mention the exceptional form he was in earlier this year in Abu Dhabi, when he scored ODI centuries against the UAE and Afghanistan.

de Lange, meanwhile, was one of the bowling stars of the competition, the counter taker after the first 17 games with eight wickets, the same as Adil Rashid of the Northern Superchargers and Rashid Khan of the Rockets.

But the Rockets will once again host their first pick, Riaz, whose participation in the Hundred was delayed after arriving in the UK due to a problem with his visa – he did not have a valid work permit – which l ‘forced him to go home, solve the problem, then come back to make the connection with his team. He has completed his mandatory quarantine upon his return to the UK and is available for the Rockets’ next game, against Welsh Fire on Friday in Cardiff.

The Rockets have had the best moment of the tournament so far, three wins in four outings giving them a top spot with six points, while Brave is in the other half of the eight-team roster, dropping to seventh. place with four points in four games, only above Spirit.
