Of late, especially, after the first Test at Adelaide, Mitchell Starc was kept under the pump by calling that he has lost his mojo in the Test cricket. The analysts felt that Australia’s premium fast bowler has lost his rhythm while bowling, One of the vocal members among the analysts are Shane Warne, who wanted Starc to be out of the team if he doesn’t get it right in recently concluded Perth Test.
However, Mitchell Starc replied everyone with his stunning bowling on Perth wicket. He castled the stumps of both Indiana openers with a cracker of the deliveries and also wrapped up the tail-ender lineup in a flash.
He’s been on my back since I made my debut – Mitchell Starc
The stylish southpaw revealed that Shane Warne has always been on his back by calling something or the other to make an adjustment. However, Mitchell Starc doesn’t want to pay any attention to him at any cost.
Further, he went on to add saying that it only matters to him when the coach, captain or the team management feels any adjustment for him. He called Shane Warne an outsider, whose suggestions are not much considered.
“He’s been on my back since I made my debut, so I don’t really care what Shane says,” Starc was quoted as saying by Sportstar. I’m not going to pay attention to him. As long as the coach, the captain, the team and the staff are happy with the role I’m playing and I’m doing that job for the team, that’s what matters to me,” he added.
“People outside can say what they want. They’ve been on my back for eight years, it’s not going to hurt me if they keep going for the next few years anyway,” Mitchell Starc inferred.
Well, it seems like Mitchell Starc has disappointed with the comment on him in the recent past. However, he has got all the ingredients to make things happen for him across the formats for Australia.
