Starc promises ‘no respite’ for England in Ashes
Mitchell Starc has told England there will be no let-up when they face Australia’s pace attack in the first Ashes Test in Cardiff on July 8.
The left-arm fast bowler took nine wickets in Australia’s final warm-up match as they defeated county side Essex over the weekend and Starc is now set to be an increasingly important figure following the injury-enforced retirement of <g data-gr-id="11">fellow-paceman</g> Ryan Harris.
But with Australia’s squad also including another left-arm er in Mitchell Johnson, as well as emerging right-arm seamer Josh Hazlewood, the 25-year-old <g data-gr-id="12">Starc</g> is looking forward to seeing England’s top-order batsmen unsettled by pace and movement. “Having some guys who can bowl some good heat and we can swing it is always good to see those batsmen jumping around.”
