Mitchell Starc the name which has been enough to send the shivers down the spine of batsman’s mind the number of times they have confronted this most complete left-arm fast bowler of the last one decade. The Aussie left arm fast bowler has part of current Australia tour of West Indies where he has struggled to find his rhythm and seam in the first two games of T20l series and went without wicket for 89 runs.

 

But in the decider game of the series, Starc has bowled quite well from his first two games and leaked just 15 runs in his 4 overs spells and picked one wicket also. But all these performances justifies the talent of Mitchell Indies. Maybe not! Here is one of the greatest spell of Mitchell Starc career in the initial years against West Indies.


While looking at his current bowling action, there seems to be complete change in his bowling action. The pace is not same the yorkers are missing moreover his action not look very much threating to the batsman in the recent times after so many injuries has surrounded him.

 

There have been the many fast bowlers whose careers were cut short due to the injuries factor. Shane Bond, Mitchell Johnson, Brett Lee and Dale Steyn are some of the all-time great fast bowlers of their era but unfortunately injuries have restricted their careers by huge extent. Somewhere that’s the case with Mitchell Starc too who is more lethal earlier then he’s currently bowling against any team.

 

The Speed he was generating earlier against his bowling was far lethal from his current bowling spells. Although he has been the leading wicket taker in 2015 and 2019 world cups where Starc constantly touching 145 km/h with ease.

 

But not in the current scenario he has that pace which brought the excitement among the fans that what will happen on the next delivery like his earlier spells. Even the reverse swing is missing in Mitchell Starc arsenal which is another dangerous weapon of Starc abilities. Watching fast bowlers have bringing the change in his bowling action not the good sight for the fans or for the bowler too. Hope in the coming times Mitchell Starc will be back with more lethal bouncers and toe crushing Yorkers.
