As the Ashes tournament is approaching close, the fever has engulfed players from both the teams, England and Australia. In the recently concluded match between Western Australia and New South Wales, Mitchell Starc, the quick bowler from Australia ravaged with a hat-trick in each of the innings, finishing with six wickets. The bowler, lately, said that he can bowl better than the spell he delivered in the match. It was first time when a cricketer nicked a double hat-trick in a same match in first-class circuit of Australia. Also, in entire cricket history, it is first after 1978. Starc also credited the feat to the sync he had from the rest of his team mates. Apart from his team mates, he also praised his Aussie mate Josh Hazlewood, who took six wickets in the game.
Starc said that the return of Josh Hazlewood from a hiatus due to a side strain is a credit. He said the bowler is a “bloody genius of line and length”. Apparently, Hazlewood’s excellent form in the match instigated Australia bowlers to play better and tougher. Starc said, his form will allow him and Pat Cummins to become more aggressive. About their own form, the bowler is positive stating that Cummins compliment his approach to attack. In the recent match, Starc took the last wickets in the line-up, while Cummins removed the middle. Hazlewood dismantled the top order in the match. The bowlers played against Western Australia in the match. Starc said, he has found “some real good rhythm” in the Sheffield Shield game.
The bowler commented on the conditions of Gabba and other pitches. He believes, bowling in Australia is all about getting the line and length right. The player added, the conditions will be accessed once again as the whole team arrive to play. He said the wicket supports very good cricket that punish bad bowling and rewards the good. He also said, patient batting is rewarded on such pitches.
