Mitchell Starc, Man of the Series of the ICC World Cup 2015 adamantly believes that he and Mitchell Johnson can bowl extremely well in tandem. Starc, who was also Australia’s leading wicket taker in the otherwise disappointing Ashes campaign has said that the two left arm pacers can be lethal while bowling in tandem. As Australia prepare to take on the visiting New Zealand side, the onus will indeed be on these two pacers to strike at the top.

“It worked pretty well in the World Cup (bowling in tandem),” Starc said.  “There’s times where that’s happened (run leaking) in the past, but there’s times when it’s worked really well in tandem. I don’t think you can put it down to one series where you all of a sudden rule us both out of playing together again. So there’s times when it’s going to work and times when it’s not going to come off.”



“I don’t see any point worrying about whether you’ve got two left-armers or two right-armers, you pick your best XI on any given day. If that’s Mitch and I or if it’s two other guys so be it, we’re just going to be working our butts off through the Shield round and then depending on who’s in the squad and whether we’re both in there or not we’ll lead up to that first Test,” Starc added.

“That consistency’s there with the white ball, the way it’s come out of hand in the past 12 months especially is pleasing, but I still feel there’s a way to go in improvement with the white ball, and definitely with the red. If I can take this consistency over the last three weeks into the summer with the red ball it would be fantastic,” Starc further added when quizzed about consistency.
