Paul Stirling, the renowned Irish all-rounder, brought up a clattering 61 off 36 balls to lead Southern Brave to grasp the first-ever The Hundred title.

The smashing inning comprising of numerous sixes and fours became the limelight of the game as it induced a 32-run victory over Birmingham Phoenix.

Brave, the winners of the men’s inaugural Hundred league, set up a total of 169 for Phoenix to chase up at the Lord’s. Ross Whiteley’s 44 off 19 balls played a crucial role to carry the decent total.

Whilst chasing, Phoenix’s Liam Livingstone added a 46 coming from 19 balls but was brilliantly run out by triumphant side’s Tim David. The runner-ups were remarkably restricted on 136 forbearing 5 wickets by the Brave.

Notably, the Southern Brave kicked off their The Hundred’s journey with two defeats but held on with stability to become one of the qualifiers being one step closer to the maiden trophy.

Five back-to-back wins saw their way to the Eliminator where they encountered Trent Rockets to reach the final showdown.
