“We Shut some people, but it’s just one Test” – Said Mitchell Starc


After defeating India in their home ground, Australian team is enjoying their victory well. But still the players have a terror from the captain Virat Kohli, they say about him that he is the best player and is in top heights these days. Also may be this defeat can make him stronger and more aggressive player in the next Test.  Inspire of that Australian team having glad in their first victory against India.

Mitchell Starc, Australian fast bowler says that Australian team has shut some people up while winning the match in Pune. Starc also stated in her words that the ball which taken the wicket of Virat Kohli just for 0 runs in 1st innings was a devastating bowl for India and Kohli too. It was meant to come in rather to go away.

Starc mention that, if you look closely the ball, it was supposed to come back, s it was just a small of luck there. It was his first pair of ball at the crease so he may probably going little too hard for him. Starc added that, he had a bit of chuckle at the ball before and he was fielding at long on and was in dugout. He said that “Nice to get that one so early in the series”.

He said in his words that –To shut a few people up and really show that this young team is here to play and has been great for the group. But it’s just one Test win, it’s not a series win yet so we will be doing all that we can.

Mitchell declares that Virat is a class player, and everyone knows that. He scored huge runs this year and in a best form. Starc said “I am sure that he’ll come back bigger and stronger in the next Test match and I will be careful of the Virat’s comeback”.

Australian chief fast bowlers are accustomed to conveying a heavy burden. In the period before their bounce back amid the home summer, when Australia’s batting line up fallen in a Pune-India design with disturbing normality, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood, specifically, have works long and hard in the center.

Starc mention that –”I think it’s making up for the summer Josh and I had. Spinners have bowled really very well and the pitch didn’t have much in it for Josh and me. There was very minimal natural swing because it was so abrasive and it didn’t really go too much reverse. But when O’Keefe takes that many wickets and Lyon bowling really well there’s not really much need for us on that wicket.”

Starc expects that he will be required for massive duties in Bangalore, particularly after Australia’s spinners were able to use the humiliating Pune pitch which backfired on India so Imperiously.

He comment that the Indians would have to rethink about what sort of pitch to prepare for the second Test. Starc says that “I can’t see it being too bouncy or fast because it’s a weakness of the Indian batters”. “Probably, we see it not turning as much as this wicket (Pune) has or breaking up as quickly.

We’ll probably see a wicket similar to maybe the England series they had where it’s probably flatter and there’s some really big 1st innings totals and the game goes a bit quicker towards the end. It’s a smaller ground but quite better of a wicket than what we’ve seen here in Pune.”

Mitchell also notes that, since the Indians don’t like short-pitched balls, the Australians would continue to bowl with few. He released Pujara with a sharply-rising ball in the 1st innings in Pune.

It’s probably be something not many batsmen like, basically the guys over in the Subcontinent, where they are not very used to with faster or bouncier wickets. So, that’s the thing, we can get up around their nose every now and again.  Starc said.
