PAUL STIRLING SEEMS to be enjoying himself in the Bangladesh Premier League.

Last week, Stirling pulled off this highlight-reel save to prevent a certain six as his Sylhet Royals beat the Rangpur Riders in Mirpur.

Although he was out for a duck against Chittagong the following day, he made up for it this morning when he smashed 66 off 39 balls, including 11 boundaries, against the Khulna Royal Bengals.

With opening partner Shivnarine Chanderpaul he posted a partnership of 134, setting the stage for a comfortable 61-run win.

Meanwhile Warwickshire confirmed today that Ireland skipper William Porterfield has signed a new two-year extension with the LV= County Champions.

Porterfield, 28, will stay with at Edgbaston until the end of the 2015 season.
