Frustrated Starc involved in fiery exchange


//

Despite Australia's dominant innings victory in the first Test against Sri Lanka, Mitchell Starc has cut a frustrated figure after finishing with just two wickets for the match.

While Pat Cummins tore through the heart of the tourists' lineup with six wickets, Starc was left searching for the rhythm that has deserted him in the past 12 months, finishing wicketless and failing to bowl a single maiden over in the second innings.

Starc's frustrations with himself and his opponents eventually came to the fore as he exchanged barbs with Sri Lankan wicketkeeper Niroshan Dickwella in a fiery exchange.

Dickwella, who top scored for the tourists with a quick-fire 64 in the first innings, got under the Australian paceman's skin once again with his creative array of shots.

Following Starc's struggles, former Test paceman Brett Lee suggested that Cummins should replace him at the top of Australia's attack.

“I would give Mitchell Starc a rest from bowling with the new ball,” Lee said on Fox Cricket's coverage.

“We know he’s a world class bowler, it might be the kick up the backside he needs.

“If I was Tim Paine I would say to Mitchell Starc I want you to bowl fast, full and straight nothing else, with a good bouncer as well.”

Cummins was given the new ball alongside debutant Jhye Richardson to start day three and he provided immediate results for the home side.
