Aaron Finch Compares Between Jasprit Bumrah And Mitchell Starc
Ahead of the home T20I series against Sri Lanka, Australian limited-overs captain Aaron Finch has compared between the Aussie left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc and the Indian right-arm pacer Jasprit Bumrah.
Mitchell Starc and Jasprit Bumrah both are top-class in present international cricket. Both of them are very hard-workers which have led them to their respective success.
Jasprit Bumrah is currently the no.1-ranked ODI bowler and no.4-ranked Test bowler. Though his overall bowling skills are superb and consistent along with the unorthodox but successful bowling action, Bumrah is hugely famous for his death over bowling skills.
Meanwhile, Mitchell Starc is one of the consistent pacers in the last few years. Though the fitness issues have sometimes put him back, Starc has returned again and again with his improved bowling skills. Also, Starc was the most wicket-takers in the last two Cricket World Cups. In fact, he was the Player of the Tournament award winner in ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.
Probably Jasprit Bumrah’s the benchmark in terms of death bowling in the world, but Mitchell Starc is very close to him
Australian limited-overs captain Aaron Finch has praised both these bowlers. While Finch has admitted Bumrah’s mastery in the death bowling, he also feels that Starc is very close to Bumrah.
“Starcy’s proven himself in both the shorter formats of the game that he’s as good as anyone in the world. Probably Bumrah’s the benchmark in terms of death bowling in the world, but Starcy’s very close to him, and it’s about getting guys enough experience at international level, but also having the skills to do it,” Finch said.
Australia are ready to start their new home season from this Sunday (27th October). Their first assignment is the three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka.
Aaron Finch feels lucky to have Kane Richardson
Ahead of this T20I series, Australia have received a blow after losing Andrew Tye from the entire T20I series. Tye will miss this T20I series due to an elbow injury. While Finch feels unfortunate to miss Tye, he also feels lucky to get Kane Richardson in the squad.
Finch claimed, “I think we’re really lucky we’ve got Kane Richardson who did a great job for us in the one dayers, through India, Dubai and then when he had his opportunity in the World Cup. AJ’s a quality bowler and it’s unfortunate we’re not going to have him most likely for these two series. It’s about guys around the country as well, putting a lot of pressure on the players that are in the squad at the moment to put their hand up and make themselves known through one-day performances and Big Bash.”
The Sri Lanka T20I series will run between 27th October and 1st November 2019. After this series, Australia will play another three-match home T20I series against Pakistan from 3rd to 8th November 2019.
