IND vs AUS: Mitchell Starc admits still not 100 percent fit but good enough for the third Test

Mitchell Starc will be counted on to give the occasional breakthrough and help the spin bowlers now that Australia’s skipper Pat Cummins has returned to Australia to deal with his sick mother.

Mitchell Starc, a senior Australian bowler, has not yet “completely” healed from the injury he sustained, but he is prepared to make an impact in the third Test match against India, which will begin here on Wednesday.

Starc will be counted on to give the occasional breakthrough and help for the spin bowlers now that Australia’s skipper Pat Cummins has returned to Australia to deal with his sick mother.

The Indian fast bowlers, particularly Mohammed Shami, have already made a significant impact on the series, with the former being the most outstanding of the bunch.

“I am feeling fine. There will be some degree of unease present over the next few moments. Although I don’t believe it will get a perfect score for quite some time, the current score is satisfactory.

“The ball is coming out fairly good, and I am bowling at full force,” the bowler said. ” It won’t be the first time that I play a test while experiencing some kind of pain or discomfort. “If I just played when I was 100 percent, I would have only played 5-10 Tests,” remarked Starc before Australia’s first practice session here at this location.

Starc is eager to make a huge impact for his side in the same way that the Indian pacers have in the past. At the practice nets, he bowled at full speed to Cameron Green for 1 entire hour.

“Yes, it’s been a difficult situation for the Australian seamen,” he said. The Indian quicks have still played a very important role with the new ball, despite the fact that spin has played a clear and evident significant impact. In the event that it does the opposite, it means that they have brought the stumps into play. “There is no question that spin will play a significant part once more; yet, in order to capture those 20 wickets, I will need to play a significant role alongside the spinners,” said the left-arm fast.

In the game, Australia’s most likely alternatives for their fast bowling duo are Starc and Green. Cummins was the only option the squad had for quick bowling in Delhi because the visitors decided to go with three spinners who specialize in their position.

The 33-year-old cricket player, who has appeared in 75 tests, is hoping that his previous experience playing in the sub-continent would be beneficial to him here. Also, he has a positive outlook on his physical appearance.

“There is absolutely no cause for alarm. After the accident, I was off work for between eight and ten days. Since then, I’ve been going to the bowling alley. There are no worries regarding the workload or the physique. I am pleased with the current state of my body. Now comes the time to put the talent into practice.

“I’m not quite certain that anything has been successful for me in the past here. I haven’t had a lot of experience playing cricket in this location. I believe that having recently gone through such experiences in Pakistan and Sri Lanka will play a role in this.

“Even if the circumstances in India are different from what we’re used to, in terms of your skillset, what matters is how you execute on these surfaces. Not everything can be explained by looking at what has occurred in the past. You advance both as individual individuals and as a group,” Starc said further.
