The players have been high on temper during the first Test in Durban; the Australian Mitchell Starc has left an impact. However, the 28-year-old star bowler.
However, while accrediting his partners, Starc revealed it was the good all-round effort
“As a bowling unit, we’ve done really well,” Starc told SuperSport.
While shedding light on his improvement, Starc believes he could do immensely well with the new ball upfront.
With du Plessis already point Starc as the difference, Starc has made his mind clear to be more efficient in the Test fold in particular.
“The reversing ball is going all right this season. There’s maybe a little bit of work to do with the new ball and getting a few more early wickets,” Starc said.
However, he reiterated to give his best after sending the ominous warning to hosts.
The left-arm pacer Starc has been dominating with the white-ball. He subsequently proved himself with his ability to reverse it in the Test fold as well.
Starc has bagged the Man of the Match award for his remarkable bowling in the Durban Test. He wrapped the figures with nine for 109 to devastate the Proteas tail in both innings.
“I’ve done it for a while now so I don’t find it too difficult,” Starc stated.
Pertinently, while making the better use of the old cherry Starc rose to the occasion while piling-up miseries for South Africa.
While setting the horizon to improve his area, Starc already saw 118 runs routed hosts.
The chief architect with the ball, Starc further saw hosts falling like the pack of cards. The lower-order has been a cause of concern for Faf du Plessis-led South Africa. He stated the reverse swing comes to him as naturally owing to his wrist position.
“(Reverse-swing bowling) is a more natural wrist position for me – it tends to be in the position I get when I get quite lazy and tired at the crease. When it is reversing, it’s pretty natural for me,” Starc said.
The Proteas lost five wickets for 12 runs in first innings. It further saw them losing five wickets in 15 runs.
However, the Test wrapped in first 22 balls on the morning of day five. Paceman Josh Hazlewood sent Quinton de Kock back to the pavilion.
“It’s nice to put a few in the right spot. To finish off a Test match like that over four and a bit days was pretty pleasing for the group,” Starc concluded.
Pertinently, Starc would be banking on his strength while considering the complete package he is known.
