Jednak zapobiegawcze badanie Starca wykazało, że nie jest to poważny uraz.

Australia face Namibia in a crucial T20 World Cup match in Antigua, with a win securing their place in the Super Eights. However, the team has been dealt a blow with Mitchell Starc ruled out due to a “mild calf soreness.”

Mitchell Starc absence: Precaution or Concern?

Captain Mitchell Marsh confirmed Starc “didn’t quite pull up from the last game,” prompting a cautious approach considering the team’s busy schedule.

This follows head coach Andrew McDonald’s earlier statement about managing fast bowlers’ workloads. Starc’s absence is a concern, especially after conceding 0-37 runs against England.

However, a precautionary scan came back clear, suggesting it might not be a serious injury.

Nathan Ellis steps in

Replacing Mitchell Starc is Nathan Ellis, who impressed in warm-up matches, including a strong performance against Namibia itself (conceding only 17 runs). He also bowled well against Oman in the tournament opener before making way for Pat Cummins against England.
