For the vital second Test match against India, which starts on Friday, February 17, at Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium, Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc is expected to be in good condition. The left-arm fast bowler believes he would have a good chance of making a comeback in the longer format after suffering a fractured finger.
By an innings and 132 runs, the Australian side lost the opening Border Gavaskar Trophy (BGT) 2023 match. Mitchell Starc missed the first Test in Nagpur because of an injury he suffered in late December. Instead of immediately departing for India, where he landed on Saturday, the 32-year-old decided to stay at home in Sydney. He eventually caught up with his team before the second test.
Mitchell Starc committed to do all in his power to be fully available for selection in the crucial match. He admitted that the team administration and medical staff would decide whether or not to participate in the game.
I would much rather be a little farther up the road. Starc stated on Wednesday in Delhi that it would depend on how it responded by Wednesday night, how the medical team perceived it, as well as how selectors Pat Cummins and Ronnie (coach Andrew McDonald) felt about it.
I don’t think there will be a batting issue, but it will be uncomfortable. I think I’ll keep playing with a cap on, just as I did in Melbourne (when he first broke the finger) (the finger). I don’t field myself in slip, in any case “He announced.
Following the humiliating defeat, certain changes are expected to be made in the Australian bowling lineup. Pat Cummins will serve as the captain of the fast bowling unit, and Mitchell Starc is anticipated to take the role of Scott Boland. Todd Murphy, a rookie, took seven wickets while the spinners stayed unaltered.
