Ian Healy criticizes Mitchell Starc for his performance in the World Cup 2023

Former Australian Cricketer Ian Healy criticizes Mitchell Starc for his performance in the World Cup 2023 before Australia’s semi-final against South Africa. Starc was the leading wicket-taker in the previous two years’ ODI tournaments in 2019, and 2015. But Starc has underperformed in this current tournament held in India.

In previous years he has taken 22 and 27 wickets but in the present tournament, he has only claimed 10 wickets in 8 matches at a dismissal average of 43.90. This performance is notably below the high standards he set for himself in past editions.

Due to this Ian Healy had a serious claim on Starc that he has not been potent at all. Speaking to the SENQ breakfast media, Ian Healy questioned the effectiveness of Mitchell Starc’s bowling in the Marquee event, as he failed to impact the team, and urged him to fire the ball into the stumps.

Listen to the words, that were spoken by Ian Healy, about Mitchell Starc especially about the powerplay.

“Is (Starc) still a potent force?

He’s not been potent at all in this tournament. 10 wickets off eight games is not bad but where is he taking these wickets?

He won’t be potent at all until he gets it right and zero in on the stumps much better than he has. Fire into those stumps and feet”. 

“If we haven’t got South Africa one or two wickets down in that powerplay, then it’ll be a big total to chase,” he added.

Mitchell Starc has only picked up four wickets at a pitful average of 34.75 in the first powerplay. Healy believed that Starc was given rest to ensure he’d be in optimal condition for the upcoming clash against the Proteas.

“He needs to be much, much better,” Healy said of Starc.

“That’s why they rested him. Just to try and fire him up.”

“He is a long way off his previous (best).”

Adam Zampa has been the team’s main contributor to their victory in the league stage. Anyhow, fast ball attack has struggled overall in the event.
