Ashes 2021-22: Mitchel Starc Strikes With First Ball

0 11

Brisbane: Australia made a terrific return to the Gabba, months after losing the final Test against India earlier this year in January.

Mitchell Starc bowled a beauty to knock over England opener Rory Burns off the very first ball of the game.

First ball, Starc came over the wicket and nailed the blockhole on leg stump with a delivery that clocked 142 kph. Burn was bowled around the leg stump but since, he shuffled across too far, the ball found to ram into the stumps.

The dismissal led to animated celebrations by the Australian who had made the best possible start to the match and the series. It was big setback for England as captain Joe Root had decided to bat first after winning the toss. The pitch has a lot of live grass on it and the English batters are in for a test against a dangerous Australian fast bowling line up.
