Mitchell Starc destroyed the Indian batting lineup earlier today in Vizag. Fans had high hopes from Team India on a Super Sunday ODI match against the Australian cricket team. However, all the Indian fans were left disappointed as the Indian team got all out for just 117 runs. To make matters worse for the fans, India conceded 121 runs in 11 overs and the match ended in just total 37 overs.
It was a forgettable Sunday for all the fans who turned up at the stadium in Vizag to cheer for the Men in Blue, but it was one of the best Sundays of Mitchell Starc’s life, who took a career-defining five-wicket haul and helped the Aussies win the game by 10 wickets.
Despite having the world’s best T20 league, India have failed to build a left-arm fast bowling talent like Mitchell Starc. There are many raw talents present in domestic cricket, and if the selectors groom one of the following five pacers, they can become the Starc of India.
1. T Natarajan made his debut against the team of Mitchell Starc and disappeared
It is quite strange to note that left-arm fast bowler T Natarajan has not received a chance to play for India since 2021. He is a left-arm pacer and loves to bowl in death overs. Yet, he has not gotten a single opportunity since the series against England in 2021.
2. Arshdeep Singh has pace like Mitchell Starc
Punjab Kings’ rising star Arshdeep Singh has improved significantly in T20I format. He has got the pace and swing. His left-arm action makes him a unique player for India. If the coaches work with Singh, he can become the biggest match-winner for India.
3. Khaleel Ahmed
Khaleel Ahmed has always been a wicket-taking bowler. In IPL 2022 last year, he played for DC and swung the new balls. During the match against Mumbai Indians, Rohit Sharma failed to pick his deliveries. Yet, India have not given him any chance to play in the last three years.
