Mitchell Starc: The physical, literal and spiritual successor

Mitchell Starc.jpg

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.
