Australia’s pace spearhead, Mitchell Starc has fully recovered from his injury and is eyeing the Test series against Pakistan and India which is scheduled later this year.
Meanwhile, Starc has been out of action since March 2018. As a result, he has missed one Test, five One-day Internationals and six Twenty20 Internationals for the Aussies.
Furthermore, he also missed the entire Indian Premier League (IPL) this year.
However, in a recent interview, Starc admitted that he is regaining his fitness and is eager to get into the field. He also revealed that his rehabilitation is going in full swing.
“My rehab is progressing well and I’m looking forward to getting back on the field for the big upcoming Test series against Pakistan and India,” Starc told Mumbai Mirror.
Australia will play a two-match Test series against Pakistan commencing on October 22 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Post that, India will also tour Down Under for a four-match Test series commencing on December 6.
However, they will play a T20I series prior to that and an ODI series will follow the Test series.
Mitchell Starc to sleep at SCG before eyeing India, Pakistan series:
Chappell Foundation is organising a fund-raising charity event through a novel sleepout at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on August 5. Starc is one of the players to have agreed to take part in that.
The athlete will sleep at the SCG withstanding its biting cold. His wife Alyssa Healy, the Australian women’s team wicketkeeper-batter has also agreed to be part of the charity too.
“I definitely haven’t slept out on the SCG before, but I’ve been out there on a few cold nights playing,” he said.
In conclusion, Mitchell Starc believes homeslesness is a major cause of concern in Australia.
“Homelessness in youth is a growing issue. There are over 44,000 young homeless Australians which is an alarming statistic. It’s the least we can do,” he concluded.
