Tall, fast and skillful, Mitchell Starc is one of the most exciting young fast bowlers in Australia. While the left-arm pacer can trouble the batsmen with pace and bounce on helpful wickets, he is equally capable of being effective in conditions that don’t suit his kind. Having played in the 2012 CLT20 for Sydney Sixers, Starc was RCB’s knight in shining armour who turned the team’s fortunes around in IPL 2015 with 20 wickets in 13 matches.

First there was Johnson, then there was Starc. A left-armer called Mitchell has been a staple of Australia’s attack for most of the past decade and seems set to remain so for the foreseeable future. While Johnson was more express, Starc is still quick enough to make life uncomfortable for opposition batsmen, especially with the bounce gained from his 1.96m height – and boasts greater control of swing than his older colleague. Never was that shown to greater effect than during the 2015 World Cup, when Starc was at times unplayable, his inswingers rattling stumps and trapping batsmen in front throughout the competition. Not surprisingly he was named Player of the Tournament for his 22 victims at 10.18, and his challenge was to take that white-ball form and perform just as consistently with the red ball. Starc struggled to gain the consistent backing of the selectors early in his Test career and was often in one Test and out the next, but in 2015 he finally enjoyed a solid run of Test cricket until an ankle injury stopped him during the home summer. Also a classy lower-order batsman, Starc fell one short of a Test century in Mohali in 2013.
