Big boost for Australia as this pacer looks set to make a comeback, sends warning to Rohit Sharma’s Team India
Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc and all-rounder Cameron Green, who missed the first two Tests of the series against India, are set to play the third Test in Indore from March 1. He is still not 100 percent recovered.
After losing the first two Tests inside three days, Australia suffered further losses in the ongoing four-match series in India, with skipper Pat Cummins missing the third Test in Indore, having returned home due to personal reasons.

Although Australia lost the first two Tests in just three days, the return of Starc and Green is a positive sign for the visitors. Starc confirmed that his finger is yet to heal completely, but he is confident and ready to play.
Stark explained that his finger has been in a splint for six weeks, and it will still be in place for a few more weeks. However, he has been playing in similar conditions throughout his career and is used to dealing with discomfort.
“It’s quite good,” Starc said of his finger as quoted by the ICC on Monday.
“There’s going to be some degree of discomfort… I don’t think it’s going to be 100 per cent for a while, but the ball is coming out quite well and I feel like I’m completely bowled over.” happened.” added the pacer.
“Being in a splint for six weeks and still being in a splint for a few more weeks is more about the discomfort of the joint being restricted. That’s probably the only part – dealing with the discomfort of it, getting the mobility back in it. That’s the next few weeks.” Will come in and it’s progressed again, it’s a progression every day that I bowl. It’s not a concern for me, the comfort level – it’s doing what I need to do to play To be available,” Stark said.
Starc also acknowledged the importance of spin in the first two Tests but highlighted the role of fast bowlers, especially in creating reverse swing and footmark for the spinners. As a left-handed batsman, Starc believes he can create a higher footmark than the Indian bowlers, which could benefit spinners Nathan Lyon and Todd Murphy.
“It won’t be the first Test match I’ve played in any kind of trouble. If I’d only played when I was 100 per cent, I’d have only played five or ten Tests. I’m happy where it is and I’m looking forward to the last 10 or 12 years.” I’ve built up enough of a pain threshold to deal with that stuff,” the pacer said.
“It has been a challenge in the first two Tests. We see spin playing a big role,” he added. [that,] Pacers still have a role to play with the new ball [and] If it reverses, to be able to bowl that slippery ball and bring the stumps into play. There is definitely an important role for the seam bowlers as we have seen with the Indian players, and Pat has been attacking with the ball at times,” Starc said.
“Being a left-handed batsman is a bit different and definitely with the footmark I can produce as well. Definitely being a bit heavier at the crease can produce more than the Indian guys,” signed off the pacer. .
Mitchell Starc and Cameron Green are set to play in the third Test against India despite Starc’s finger injury. Although Australia have lost the first two Tests, Starc is full of confidence and believes that along with the spinners, the fast bowlers also have a role to play.
