Smith excited to have the lethal Starc in his bowling arsenal
Australian left-arm pacer, Mitchell Starc is all set to make a comeback in international cricket in the tri-nation series in the Caribbean.
Starc was forced away from the action due to the foot injury he suffered last year in November during the Adelaide test. During the span, he missed Australia’s tour to New Zealand and the World T20 campaign in India.
The 26-year old Aussie is back to nets in the recent weeks, he had an extensive session at the Bupa National Cricket Centre in Brisbane on Sunday and another brief session on Monday bowling at full throttle.
Australia is to take on the current World T20 Champions, West Indies and South Africa in tri-nation ODI tournament, which is commencing from June 3rd.
The Australian skipper, Steve Smith is happy to have the young speedster in the lineup, “It’s nice to have Mitchell Starc back bowling the way he is,” Smith told cricket.com.au, “He’s looking fresh and bowling at good pace.”
Smith believes that the opponents are afraid of the venomous pacer, “Hopefully some of the South African and West Indies batsmen are a little bit scared at the moment.
“It’s exciting to have him back and hopefully he can have some success straight away, or pick up where he left off,” said Smith.
