Former and recent Australian players have advised pace bowler Mitchell Starc to end his fight of words with Australian spin legend Shane Warne and focus on proving himself as a Test element.
Another star Australian pacer Mitchell Johnson out of the Sydney Test due to a hamstring wound, the doors were opened for Mitchell Starc to join the Australian team on his home deck at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
The Daily Telegraph reported that the former Australian Test pacer Stuart Clark trusts Mitchell Starc has lost his credence as a result of the cutting up and changing over the years.
However, taking on the part of strike bowler in the 4th and last Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground against India is a chance that the young pacer cannot want to waste. Australian spin legend Shane Warne had lambasted Mitchell Starc’s behavior as soft during the Brisbane Test and Mitchell Starc has not valued the feedback.
Australian cricketer Chris Rogers asserted that those remarks would pinch Starc a little bit, but he also said that they would also motivate him. Chris Rogers said if Starc gets that chance he should make the most of it. When in Big Bash League, Mitchell Starc bowled against the Perth Scorchers, Shane Warne took credit on twitter, saying that it would be nice if Mitchell bowled in a Test match like he does with a white ball.
On Saturday Mitchell Starc replied that he does not follow the spin legend. Clark said that Mitchell Starc could not help the number of times he had been asked about the dispute. He added that Mitchell Starc would say that he could have better behavior at different stages. Clark also added that as far as Shane Warne goes, he is a legend of the cricket, and is entitled to his opinion. He said that Mitchell is possibly best off focusing on his match and not worrying about what Shane Warne has to say.
