Warne-Muralitharan Trophy 2019: Preview
Time for Australian Bowlers to Redeem Themselves
About a year ago, the Australian bowling attack was considered as one of the best, if not the best, in the world. But the series against India completely shattered that image. The Aussie bowlers were made to appear embarrassingly toothless on pitches where Indian bowlers were pummeling their batsmen.
While a good outing against Sri Lanka wouldn’t fully restore their former reputation, it would prevent further damage. The bowler most under pressure is Mitchell Starc. Having been renowned as a fierce and dangerous pace bowler, his performances in the last few matches have been ordinary and led to criticism from even the great Shane Warne.Published 21 Jan 2019, 01:46 IST
