Australia’s fast bowler Mitchell Starc has had a lot to cheer about against the opposition batsmen in his cricketing career. Starc who has the knack of delivering the balls at a swift pace has always managed to come out on top much to batsmen’s annoyance. With subtle bowling variations of good line and length, he has been an absolute nightmare to the batsmen.

The speedster knows how to get a wicket at the right time and doesn’t give any snippet of breathing space for the batsmen to go for the kill and instead he lets his ball do the talking. Starc’s effect of destruction was once again witnessed during the third T20I match between Australia and Pakistan at the Perth Stadium.

He loves to make a mess of the stumps with an absolute peach of inswingers and the eye-catching moment was seen when the bowler clean bowled Pakistan’s Mohammad Rizwan’s stumps at the best scene. The batsman had just stepped on the pitch, facing his first ball against a deadly pacer.

Starc, who was in a good mood with the ball looked really dangerous. He responded straight away by bowling a gem of a delivery, in what was more than enough to send the batsman packing, claiming 2 wickets in 2 balls. Before dismissing Rizwan, Starc trapped Babar Azam for an LBW for 6 runs.

Here’s how Mitchell Starc made a complete mess of Mohammad Rizwan:

Australia won the toss and elected to bowl first. Pakistan struggled to provide a good start and a result, they fell prey to Aussie bowlers. Iftikhar Ahmed saved the team from humiliation as he was the pick of the batsmen, scoring a 37-ball 45 with the help of 4 fours and apart from him, all others hardly made an impact on the pitch, with the majority of them getting dismissed for single-digit scores.

Pakistan are in big trouble at the moment. They surrendered at the hands of Australia in the previous fixture and the first match was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to rain. The ongoing match already gave signs that Australia have a clear-cut chance to seal the series with a beaming smile.
