Mitchell Starc’s Cheeky Response on Ahmedabad Pitch Controversy

When asked if he was concerned about the final’s pitch, Starc responded, “I guess we’ll find out when we get to Ahmedabad tomorrow and see if it’s a fresh wicket or an old wicket,” injecting humor into the situation.

Reflecting on the used pitch at the Eden Gardens during the semi-final, Starc acknowledged its challenges, stating, “It was obviously a pretty bare wicket. I’m not sure if it was slightly tougher to start with the bat due to being under covers for some amount of time.” He also highlighted the inconsistencies in pace, making it challenging for batsmen.

Responding to the surprise of playing on a pitch that didn’t showcase the typical one-day game in a high-scoring tournament, Starc admitted, “Yeah, a little bit surprising, but you know sometimes it’s nice to see the ball dominate bat sometimes.” Despite the pitch controversies, Australia secured a narrow victory over South Africa in the semi-final, setting the stage for an intriguing final in Ahmedabad.
