The amazing victory of the Australian cricket team over Oman in their opening T20 World Cup match was overshadowed by a worrying development: a potential injury to star fast bowler Mitchell Starc.
After delivering the first ball of his fourth over Mitchell Starc, his injury woes began. He grimaced and clutched his calf, raising immediate concerns.
With Oman still requiring a significant 96 runs to win, Starc left the field after consulting with the team physiotherapist.
Experts expressed their anxieties about the seriousness of the injury. Mel McLaughlin, commentating for Amazon Prime, highlighted the risks involved, stating that Australia wouldn’t want to “tempt fate” if there’s a chance of a serious injury and adding that this scenario is ‘worrying’.
Former England captain Nasser Hussain echoed this sentiment, suggesting that even if it were just a minor strain, Mitchell Starc’s absence would be a significant blow. Former Australian opener Matthew Hayden expressed hope that it was just a cramp, emphasizing Starc’s crucial role in the team’s bowling attack.
