Mitchell Starc has the same name, same trade and also the same preferred arm as his spiritual and physical predecessor Johnson. He bowls left-arm fast, and if not as scary as Mitchell Johnson, he is formidable enough, especially with his reverse swinging yorkers of pin-point accuracy.
At times he is truly unplayable. Skeptics would say that it depends on the management of the ball, but he is definitely a fearsome bowler without sandpaper aids as well.
As in the case of Johnson, Starc is rather good with the bat too and has a Test average in the 20s.
