ENG VS AUS: The Australian pacer Mitchell Starc has questioned England’s capacity for persistent aggression, saying the Three Lions’ offensive style will make the 2023 Ashes series thrilling. Notably, from June 16 to July 31, five Test matches between Australia and England will be held. After Brendon McCullum became head coach and Ben Stokes was selected captain, England’s chances strengthened.

They played ‘BazBall,’ an aggressive form of cricket. Notably, Pakistan was defeated 3-0 by Ben Stokes and the company in 2022, shattering several records in the process. Even if they are 50 for five, England will start swinging, according to Starc, making the Ashes a thrilling match.

“Able To Maintain It For Some Time”: Mitchell Starc

However, he said that the Australians are ready to play their own game no matter what England throws at them. Mitchell Starc also questioned England’s ‘Bazball’ strategy using a specific game instance. What if, at one point, the hosts are behind five runs with only 50 runs scored, the left-arm pacer posed?

The Australian bowlers will be attacked, but will the English hitters still have the guts to do it?

“If they are 5-50, are they still coming out and swinging? Dunno. They’ve been able to maintain it for some time. Fair credit to them. It’s not just a one-off. It makes for an exciting Ashes contest. We’ll see if that’s the way they’re going to play, how it goes. From the guys I’ve spoken to this week, we’re not buying too much into it.”

Starc was quoted as saying by the Sydney Morning Herald

Australia’s Batting Approach

The 33-year-old added that a Test match must be won by both teams by taking 20 wickets, regardless of the pitch. The left-arm pacer added that while England’s batting order is quite capable of scoring the same number of runs as Australia’s, they do so at a faster rate. Starc, therefore, appeared enthusiastic about this exciting duel and the entire series.

“Have you ever seen a fast wicket in England? I don’t know if they can make them fast. They can certainly make them flat. I think it’s a bit of a smokescreen. There’s always a bit of chat around the Ashes. It’s still cricket, and there are three stumps at either end. You still need to take 20 wickets to win a Test. They might score a bit quicker than we do, but there’s no reason our batting lineup can’t score the number of runs they do. It’s going to be fascinating to be a part of.”
