India suffered their worst ODI defeat against Australia, with the visitors winning by 10 wickets and leveling the three-match series at 1-1. Mitchell Starc bundled out the entire top order of India in the Powerplay. The left-arm fast bowler took four wickets in the powerplay and took five wickets for 53 runs. Starc, who was adjudged man of the match after his miraculous game, believes that it was only after taking the initial wicket that his partners also got excited, which helped to bundle out India for 117 runs in just 26 overs.
Mitchell Starc said, ‘It was a completely dominating bowling performance from us, rather we took wickets in the powerplay, which helped us to bowl more aggressively throughout the innings.’ He also said that the reason for his aggression during the batting was also to bundle India out for a low score.

He said, ‘The target of such a low score was to be chased, we could have batted aggressively in the powerplay. And Mitch (Marsh) and Trav (Travis Head) did a great job with the bat. Asked whether he had any plans against Suryakumar Yadav as he got out for a duck on the first ball of the bowler for the second time in a row.
On this, Stark said, ‘I can’t say that I thought of it in a way who is the batsman. The plan doesn’t change for me, whether he is a left-handed batsman or a right-handed batsman. I try to swing and hit the stumps with fast bowling. My plan hasn’t changed for the last 13 years which is to bowl at the stumps and swing. My role is to try to pick up wickets in the powerplay.
