Starc pulls out
Australia pace spearhead Mitchell Starc will not be available for the final T20I too of the three-match series versus India due to an illness in his family.
The 30-year-old had also missed the final ODI due to back and rib niggles but returned to claim two wickets in the 11-run loss in the first T20I in Canberra on Friday. He had arrived in Sydney on Saturday but soon left the team bubble after learning about a family illness.
“There is nothing in the world more important than family and in this case, Mitch is no exception,” Australia head coach Justin Langer said in a statement.
“We will give Mitch all the time,” he said.
