Ireland and Middlesex batsman Paul Stirling has been signed up by Khulna Titans for the upcoming Bangladesh Premier League tournament.

Stirling was in stellar form in this year’s Vitality Blast, hitting 498 runs, including a blistering century against Surrey at The Oval. 

The 28-year-old said he is excited at the prospect of working with Sri Lanka legend Mahela Jayawardene.

“I was delighted to hear that the Khulna Titans were interested in me and jumped at the opportunity. Apart from being a great tournament to be part of, I’m looking forward to the opportunity of working with coach Mahela Jayawardene – one of the greatest Sri Lankan batsman of the last 20 years," he said.

“The squad has made the play-offs for two years running, and features a range of world-class players that I’ve played alongside or against over the last 10 years – including Dawid Malan who I play under at Middlesex.”

“The rise of T20 tournaments around the world has really added a new dimension to the international cricket circuit. The chance to play and train with - and learn from - some of the best in our sport is an experience I do not take lightly, and off the cricket field you get a little bit of an insight into different cultures."

The Bangladesh Premier League begins on January 5 with the opening match between Rangpur Riders and Chittagong Vikings taking place at Dhaka.
