Mitchell Starc opens up about omission from playing XI during Australia’s T20 World Cup loss vs Afghanistan

Mitchell Starc has expressed his disappointment on being left out from the playing XI during Australia’s T20 World Cup 2024 clash with Afghanistan. The left-arm speedster was forced to make way for left-arm off-spinner Ashton Agar as the team management thought the surface at Arnos Vale in St. Vincent and Grenadines would assist the spinners more compared to the seamers.

Notably, it was the second occasion when Starc was left out of the playing XI against Afghanistan for a T20 World Cup match. He was also not included in the XI for Australia’s T20 World Cup 2022 clash against the Afghans on home soil.

“No — two World Cups in a row,” Starc was quoted as saying by the Sydney Morning Herald on the Willow Talk podcast when asked about the team management’s decision.

“Just the match-up, they (team management) saw previous games on that ground in St Vincent with spin playing a part and obviously Ash (Ashton) and the left-armer enticing them to make a change,” he added.
