World Cup T20: Injured Mitchell Starc cannot play against Sri Lanka

Dubai | Australian pacemaker Mitchell Starc is unsure of Thursday’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup match against Sri Lanka after sustaining a leg injury during training. According to Australian media reports, Starc was seen limping and in pain during net practice on Wednesday night. After that, the Australian team management is closely monitoring his condition.

Starc, one of the best white ball shooters in the world, was seen limping and practicing in pain during a networking session at the ICC Academy here Wednesday night. The left arm pacemaker sustained an injury just above his right knee while bowling during a net session Tuesday night and was clearly uncomfortable.

Although Starc was seen bowling with a sleeve on his right leg on Wednesday, according to a report, he was seen going off the grid with the help of medical staff and in pain before going for treatment.

The Australian team’s management has yet to officially report his injury and treatment, but Starc is feared to miss Thursday’s game against Sri Lanka.

If Starc is not in this match, Ashton Agar will likely come to the XI player as a replacement. Starc played a key role in Australia’s win against South Africa, going 2/32 in four overs.
