Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc have been two bowlers with extremely different styles and attributes. While the former is a medium-fast seamer, who focuses on hitting the right areas frequently and relies more on accuracy, Starc is the complete opposite. For Starc, his potent weapon lies in crushing the toes of the batsmen with his pace and is the ideal example of an aggressive pacer.

 

The duo have been in sparkling form, off late, and that has been evident with the numbers churned out by them during the ongoing tri-series in the Caribbean. With the new ball, Starc and Hazlewood have troubled the top order of the opposition and hardly allowed any side to get off to a flying start. Their hard work was praised by batsmen Glenn Maxwell, who termed the duo as the “best” he had seen.

 

“That was probably the best first 10 overs I’ve seen from Australia for a long time,” Maxwell said about their spell against West Indies. “And with an inexperienced line-up as well. “Starcy was only playing his 50th game tonight, Scott Boland, Josh Hazlewood.  It’s nice to be able to put their inexperience aside and still play so well.”

 

“If you look at our World Cup side from last year, we’ve lost Mitchell Johnson and Shane Watson who bowled 20 overs for us and did such a great job for us. Whether it was through the middle when they always found a wicket for us, or up top. “We did a great job at the top and did an unbelievable job to keep them to 83 in the last 10 overs. That was outstanding and was probably the difference,” Maxwell added.
