I think we needed 13 off the last over and Mitchell Starc was bowling: Matthew Wade
Before the beginning of the ODI series, both the Indian and Australian players are busy in their final preparation process. Recently, in the Australian nets, while the players got certain scenario moments, Matthew Wade had to score probably 13 runs in the last over against Mitchell Starc.
Talking about his experience during that net practice moment, Wade revealed how good was Starc at that moment.
In a recent interview published by cricket.com.au in their social media accounts, Wade claimed, “I think we needed 13 off the last over and Starcy (Mitchell Starc) was bowling so that’s good, you’ve got the best finisher in the world bowling the last over. Got it down to the last couple of balls. I went to lap him second last ball and it was a wide and i just gave him one because I knew that workloads these days. they can’t bowl anymore balls.”
While Wade had to score 4 runs on the final delivery, the left-arm fast bowler Starc proved his best as Wade fell three runs short from the target.
Wade continued, “And then he hit what Starcy does, which is an inswinging yorker last ball, I needed four to win. I chunked it out to point for one and walked off losing which will happen more times than not off Starcy.”
