According to Alex Kountouris, physio of the Australian cricket team, the 25-year-old fast bowler had some pain on his knee during the latter stages of the World Cup. He needs some time off to rest and recovery.
His performance for Royal Challengers in 2014 was superb. He took 14 wickets with an economy of 7.49. He will have to compete with
’s Adam Milne, who was pulled out of
the World Cup with a heel problem. The team also has New
Zealand ’s Varun Aaron and Ashok
Dinda, and Australian seamer and winner of the Bradman Young Cricketer of the
Year Sean Abbott in their fast bowling stock. India
Mitchell Starc played 27 matches out of 37 for his team over the last 12 months. He was declared “Player of the Tournament” for his outstanding performance in the World Cup- claiming 22 wickets at an average of 10.18 with an economy of 3.5 per over. He became the No. 1 bowler in ODI ranking. Hope he will continue his good run in the cash-rich tournament.
