Pace machine Mitchell Starc has opened up about his role during the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. He said that he has clarity about how he has the approach to the game and that he keeps his plan simple and relies on a set methodology whether it is T-20 or Test cricket. The left-arm fast bowler is well-known among cricket fans for his pinpoint yorkers and riveting speed.
Starc last played as a part of second-string Australia against Bangladesh. He only played two out of the five games in the series due to the slow nature of the pitch that favored spinners. His last full T20I series came against West Indies and he struggled to both take wickets or keep the runs down. However, Mitchell is a big tournament player and has a career average of 18.10 in T20Is, claiming 51 wickets in 41 innings at an economy of 7.22.
I've always tried to keep my cricket simple and I'm not someone who comes out with 24 different types of slow balls, certainly for T20 cricket. I've got a bit of speed on my side and focus on obviously my death bowling as well so I think that's key for me, focus on doing a few things really well rather than doing a lot of things okay.
