Starc: Win re-opened England scars

January 17, 2015 12:01:53 UK

Mitchell Starc hopes Australia laid down a marker for continued success against England with their three-wicket win in the first Tri-Series clash at the SCG.

Starc went into the game keyed up after being accused of having soft body language by Shane Warne, and with things still to prove as an international cricketer.

The left-armer, consistent in the one-day game, has been unable to cement his place in the Test team, but when handed the ball for the first over of the match made a big statement. He had Ian Bell out lbw with the first ball and removed James Taylor the same way two balls later.

Starc went on to take 4-42, his final two wickets coming in successive deliveries in the 48th over to finish off the England tail. He ended captain Eoin Morgan’s fighting innings of 121 from 136 balls, Glenn Maxwell taking an easy catch, before bowling Steven Finn first ball.

England, who are 8.00 to win the Tri-Series, lost their ODI series in Australia 4-1 last year and suffered an Ashes whitewash, and Starc said: “Hopefully it reopened a few scars tonight.

“They’re going to have to be out here for a few months, with this Tri-Series and the World Cup, so there’s no better way to kick off our campaign that getting one above them tonight.

“I think we played really well with bat and ball, and in the field as well, so great intensity from all the boys and the only way to go is to try and improve that now.”

Starc said he felt confident with the white ball in his hand, and was delighted with the way he had started the match.

Australia are 1.53 to win their second ODI against India on Sunday, with India 2.50 to emerge triumphant.
