AUS vs ENG: Will Mitchell Starc leave ODI-T20 for Test? Know what was the response

Australia vs England: Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc has indicated that he may consider giving priority to Test cricket over white ball matches. He also said that he may not be able to play in all the three formats for a long time. Starc played a key role in Australia’s win to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the ODI series against England, claiming four wickets in his eight overs as Jos Buttler’s side beat Jos Buttler’s men by 72 runs at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday. Gave. The 32-year-old fast bowler said after the match, "It is definitely becoming impossible to play every match in all the three formats."

cricket.com.au quoted Starc as saying, "The way scheduling is being done nowadays is not easy. He said that it is certainly impossible to play every match as a three-format player." They said, "(But) I don’t think playing three formats is something I can do for a long period going forward."

Stark also revealed that "The chaotic schedule of cricket would eventually lead him to retire from the white-ball format in order to prolong his Test career. The report states, "One of the six three-format players in Australia’s squad, the left-armer is eyeing the prospect of more than 100 days of international cricket next year."

Australia’s grueling schedule can be gauged from the fact that the cricketers had to play a three-match ODI series against England four days after England won the T20 World Cup at the MCG. To manage the workload, Test and ODI captain Pat Cummins and Starc have decided to skip next year’s IPL. Cummins rounded off the series with a 72-run win at the SCG on Saturday, with Josh Hazlewood making his captaincy debut. Australia will also play two and three match series against Windies and South Africa respectively this season.
